History of Semantic Web

The conceptualization of the Semantic Network model was first made in the early sixties  to represent semantically structured knowledge in a clear and concise manner. Semantic web introduces metadata to pages on websites which may be read by machines only. The purpose of this is to allow automated agents to navigate the Web space more intelligently and efficiently for the users. Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web and director of the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C“) coined the phrase “Semantic Web and defined it as “a web of data that can be processed directly and indirectly by machines.”
