   RE: [xml-dev] XML/RDF

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It's that trust humans invest in artifacts 
that other humans claim are intelligent. 
The SemWeb is supposed to be an improvement 
on The Web.  Otherwise, why bother?  I think 
Mike is asking that among other things.  Why 
take the trouble to put RDF into XML systems 
if we get the same kind of web out of it?

This is ground we've covered on this list 
before.  The options are what you say 
they are.

The good news is that you have business built 
on this, so you are profiting and someone is 
using the technology.   The Semantic Web itself 
doesn't seem to be gaining traction.  RDF is 
gaining some traction.  


From: Uche Ogbuji [mailto:uche.ogbuji@fourthought.com]

But all that is Semantic Web futurism.  I can tell you that I deal all the 
time with actual RDF databases that contain ambiguities.  I've never had a 
problem processing around them.

So I must be missing someone's fundamental point.
