The Semantic Web, a concept tossed around for years as a Web extension to make it easier to find and group information, is getting a critical boost Tuesday from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). W3C will announce publication of SPARQL (pronounced “sparkle”) query technology, a Semantic Web component enabling people to focus on what they want to know rather than on the database technology or data format used to store data, W3C said. The potential of the Semantic Web cannot be underestimated. By scanning the Web on behalf of users, even Google’s ad-based business model could be impacted, an analyst said. SPARQL queries express high-levels goals and are easier to extend to unanticipated data sources. The technology overcomes limitations of local searches and single formats, according to W3C.
