The article discusses the Semantic Web, and evolution of the World Wide Web, which supposes that the Web will develop to deliver a services oriented architecture (SOA). One of the central themes of the Semantic Web is bringing non-human Web content consumers into the loop. The chief proponents of the Semantic Web, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), headed by Tim Berners-Lee, is seeking greater interoperability in Web functions. Semantic approaches to the Web could enable more powerful discovery, indexing, search, classification, commentary and navigation across unstructured or semi-structured content.
