As the World Wide Web continues to expand, it becomes increasingly
difficult for users to obtain information efficiently. Because most
search engines read format languages such as HTML or SGML, search
results reflect formatting tags more than actual page content, which
is expressed in natural language. Spinning the Semantic Web describes
an exciting new type of hierarchy and standardization that will
replace the current "web of links" with a "web of meaning." Using a
flexible set of languages and tools, the Semantic Web will make all
available information--display elements, metadata, services, images,
and especially content--accessible. The result will be an immense
repository of information accessible for a wide range of new

This first handbook for the Semantic Web covers, among other topics,
software agents that can negotiate and collect information, markup
languages that can tag many more types of information in a document,
and knowledge systems that enable machines to read Web pages and
determine their reliability. The truly interdisciplinary Semantic Web
combines aspects of artificial intelligence, markup languages, natural
language processing, information retrieval, knowledge representation,
intelligent agents, and databases.
