Before understanding the Semantic Web and its associated benefits, one must first be somewhat familiar with the enabling technologies upon which the Semantic Web is based. The extensible markup language (XML), uniform resource identifiers (URIs), resource definition framework (RDF), ontologies, and intelligent agents are all key tithe realization of the Semantic Web. Understanding these key technologies gives readers a firm foundation before progressing to subsequent chapters. This chapter provides a broad overview of each technology, and readers new to these technologies are provided with references to more detailed explanations.
