Module overview

The last decade and a half have seen the Web move away from a purely document-centric information system to one in which hypertext techniques are applied to the sort of data found in databases; the term “Semantic Web” is used to refer to this Web of linked data. Semantic Web technologies enable people to create data stores on the Web, build vocabularies, write rules for handling data, and develop systems that can support trusted interactions over the network. This module looks at the development of the Semantic Web, at the technologies underlying it, and at the way in which those technologies are applied.
