Semantic web thinking from the Guardian

by

The Guardian today publishes details of a practical example of Semantic Web technology: The semantic web – a touch of intelligence for the internet?
The piece looks at work taking place at HP Labs in Bristol and the Institute for Learning and Research Technology at the University of Bristol which aims to “move semantic web technologies into the mainstream of networked computing,” and it considers the implications for education
Elsewhere, Semantic Web enthusiast and Guardian journalist Ben Hammersley has presented his Sporting Gent’s guide to the Semantic Web at the REBOOT conference in Copenhagen. Afterwards, he has applied himself to the thorny issue of how to deal with truth in semantic markup
The answer to the problem of false metadata is, in fact, more metadata. For the problem of false metadata is actually a subset of the much wider problem of false information in general. Although the semantic web’s need for metadata allows for more things to be false, metadata is also the only way to denote the data as false once you know it to be so.
