A few years ago, one of the founders of the Web and current director of the W3 Consortium, Tim Berners-Lee, along with his colleagues (Berners- Lee, Hendler, and Lassila, 2001), proposed to provide the Internet with information whose meaning, beyond its syntax, could be interpreted by a program that would search information in ways that are far more intelligent than now. This new generation of the Internet has been termed “the Semantic Web”.
