Semantic Web

What is it?

A two-dimensional revolution?

Semantic-Web ideas (Marshall 2003) variously advocate universalizing the Web's:

  • target audience: from people only to people and machines
  • content: from domain-specific to general
  • both (utopia)

And what about ambiguity?

People → machines

Requires ambiguity control?

Specific → universal

Makes innocuous ambiguity harmful and ambiguity control costly?
