Towards a Web of Knowledge
The web today is a large document repository. Very little of the
information on the web is machine understandable. It is gradually moving
towards becoming a repository of data. The real challenge is to take if
from being a repository of data to a Web of Knowledge. In this talk, I
will describe some of the infrastructure that is being build, such as
RDF and the Open Directory, that might enable us to reach this goal.
