What is the semantic web?

Today, Andreas Blumaur of the Semantic Web School, based in Vienna, Austria undertook a one day “Introduction to the Semantic Web”. Much of this is new to me, some of it is old, but uses new words to describe old concepts and none of it is particularly easy. It’ll take me a couple of days to work out what I’ve learned today and put it into my personal knowledge framework.


Original posted on my sun/oracle blog, , posted here in June 2016, I have updated Andreas’ link, this is more a diary entry rather than a polemic.


  1. The companies web site has been revised; I have updated the links, and now use Andreas’ linkedin page as his link.
