With the rise of the Semantic Web and in the course of the standardization of ontology languages, logic-based knowledge representation (KR) has received wide attention from academics and practitioners alike. This talk will present a – necessarily subjective – view on the role of KR in the context of the Semantic Web. It will make a case for rigid logical underpinnings with principled analyses of expressivity and computational properties (like decidability or complexity) of KR formalisms, but also discuss the challenges that the KR community has to address in order to ensure the ongoing uptake of modern KR technology by the wider Semantic Web public and IT business in general.
