Semantic Web


Definition: The Semantic Web is a phrase that describes the evolution of the Web as it moves toward a more intuitive way of retrieving and presenting search results for searchers. The term "semantic" in this context refers to different meanings, or semantics, of information as this information is presented, and the ongoing effort to make that information more relevant to what searchers are looking for at any given time.
"In order for the Semantic Web to move forward, many technologies are being developed to make information more easily retrievable, intuitive, and relevant for searchers."
