Top 10 Semantic Web products of 2009

December 7, 2009

Semantic Web research has become high active research area, considering the precise requirement of information retrieval.

2009 has seen a lot of Semantic Web and structured data activity. Much of it has been driven by Linked Data, a W3C project which gained momentum this year. According to Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the Web, Linked Data is a sea change akin to the invention of the WWW itself. We’ve gone from a Web of documents to a Web of data.

The 10 products we’ve picked out for this end-of-year review are ones that have done interesting things with data. Connecting to other data, building new applications with data, sharing data, and more. These 10 products may not be the type of Semantic Web apps that the W3C envisaged in the 90s, but that no longer seems to matter. What’s important is that the Web is becoming more meaningful – more semantic.

Listed here are,

1. Google Search Options and Rich Snippets
2. Feedly
3. Apture
4. Zemanta
5. Open Calais 4.0
6. BBC’s Semantic Music Project
7. Glue
8. Freebase
9. DBpedia
10. Data. Gov
