Justifications for semantic technologies – revisited

This article, Justifications for semantic technologies – revisited, is worth reading.

The bottom line is this.  Semantic technologies allow for:

  • straight application of knowledge in the production process through application ontologies; there is near to no entropy involved
  • description and management of processes
  • unambiguous descriptions through glossaries, context, knowledge models whereby concepts are explained through their relation to other concepts
  • knowledge engineering
  • knowledge representation
  • reading by men and machines
  • interoperability constructs and formats
  • version control on the level of descriptions and operations
  • knowledge generation on top of asserted knowledge
  • support the growing attention for openness in public administrations (open data)
  • coping with the above mentioned issues
