Apparently(and here) Google have bought have bought Applied Semantics, "...a
company that provides domain name, contextual advertising and enterprise
What's interesting is how they do it :
"A massive ontology, or knowledge base of concepts and their relationships,
lies at the heart of all Applied Semantics software products. That means
that the software already understands what a word or phrase means and how it
relates to other concepts in a document or web page."
I've not read much of the docs but seems like a close but slightly scruffy
relative of WordNet & Cyc.
What (if anything) Google will do with this remains to be seen. It would be
interesting if RDF got a proprietary, commercial competitor. It would be
much more interesting if Google got RDF.
