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.
