Semantic Web Gathering

The latest thinking in federal Semantic Web technology should be on display April 25 when the Semantic Interoperability Community of Practice (SICoP) holds a conference in Reston, Va. (Click here for the agenda; the event is unclassified and free.)

The Semantic Web could revolutionize the Web and the world by making data machine-readable and setting up software agents to make inferences based on that data. As we’ve blogged, it is not without its skeptics, and faces high hurdles to implementation. But, many feel its potential is too high to ignore. And as the agenda shows, the intelligence community continues to remain interested in it as a way of connecting the dots.
