semantic web,, "Solid"

 The semantic future of the web - Stack Overflow Blog

Berners-Lee has been working on Solid as a method to allow users greater control over their own data, building upon key concepts of a Semantic Web. -

" is a collaborative, community activity with a mission to create, maintain, and promote schemas for structured data on the Internet, on web pages, in email messages, and beyond. vocabulary can be used with many different encodings, including RDFa, Microdata and JSON-LD. These vocabularies cover entities, relationships between entities and actions, and can easily be extended through a well-documented extension model. Over 10 million sites use to markup their web pages and email messages. Many applications from Google, Microsoft, Pinterest, Yandex and others already use these vocabularies to power rich, extensible experiences."

"Solid lets people store their data securely in decentralized data stores called Pods. Pods are like secure personal web servers for data. All data in a pod is accessible via the Solid Protocol. When data is stored in someone's pod, they control who and what can access it.

Solid is led by the inventor of the Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, to help realise his vision for its future."

"The Semantic Web is a machine for creating syllogisms. A syllogism is a form of logic,

The canonical syllogism is:
  • Humans are mortal
  • Greeks are human
  • Therefore, Greeks are mortal
Despite their appealing simplicity, syllogisms don't work well in the real world, because most of the data we use is not amenable to such effortless recombination. As a result, the Semantic Web will not be very useful either."
