Could Big Data Spur The Development Of The Semantic Web?

Could Big Data Spur The Development Of The Semantic Web? | SearchTools | Scoop.it

The semantic web, or web 3.0, is often quoted as the next phase of the Internet. Led by the World Wide Web Consortium(W3C), the objective is to convert the current web of unstructured and semi-structured data into a “web of data”. According to W3C, with the semantic web it will be possible to easily share and re-use data across application, community and enterprise boundaries.
