Semantic Web Issues

Previous Next

Here is a list of issues about the semantic web.

Semantic Web Agents

The semantic web will not be searchable in free text. To search (or access) the semantic web, we will need some software to help us.

To use the semantic web, we will need "Semantic Web Agents" or "Semantic Web Services". These "Agents" or "Services" will help us to find what we are looking for on the semantic web.

On the semantic web, we would like to look for information about:

  • The cheapest airline tickets
  • Styling that would fit my car
  • Books, films, and music CDs
  • Weather forecasts
  • Time schedules and calendar events
  • Stock prices and exchange rates

In the future, for any information out there on the web; ask your "Semantic Web Agent".

Semantic Web Security

Can I trust a seller on the semantic web. Can I trust a buyer on the semantic web?

To solve I will need access to more RDF files:

  • Credit card information
  • Bank information
  • Semantic records
  • Social Security information
Source Person ID Person Name Status
Citybank 11223344 John Smith trustworthy
VISA 11223344 John Smith trustworthy
Recorded 11223344 John Smith unknown
US Social Security 11223344 John Smith born 10-10-1962

By using RDF files like this, my "Semantic Web Agent" can determine if I can trust the person I am dealing with.

(the "Recorded" information could be supplied by Internet trading companies like eBay, Amazon or the like)


To serve the semantic web, payment methods have to be developed.

Internet accessible "Deposit Accounts" could be a solution to this.

A deposit account is an account that can only receive deposits. It could be made accessible for everyone on the Internet, and everyone could deposit money to your account only knowing your ID (or your email address, much like PayPal).

Using this payment method everyone could publish their bank account number over the Internet and sell their car without any middleman.

What will be the future of Internet banking?
