Semantic technologies are rapidly becoming mainstream, with RDF, OWL and SPARQL now supported by a range of commercial systems and used in diverse application domains. In this talk I will briefly review the design of these languages, then examine some successful applications and identify features of the design that have proved particularly useful and/or problematical. Based on this experience, I will highlight specific challenges and suggest some directions for future research.

Semantic artificial intelligence (Semantic AI) is a method that has both organizational and technological benefits. It goes beyond being "just another machine learning algorithm." It's more of an organizational and technological AI approach that is used over the whole data lifecycle.

Semantic refers to the capacity for recognition, comprehension, perception, and subsequent response. As semantics determines the interaction level, Web 3.0 is built on artificial intelligence and machine learning, as is well known. You can download Volim Hue here if you want.
