How to Make a Semantic Web Browser (25 Apr 2004)
This principle forms the basis for our Semantic Web browser-an end-user application that automatically locates metadata and assembles point-and-click interfaces from a combination of relevant information, ontological specifications, and presentation knowledge, all described in RDF and retrieved dynamically from the Semantic Web. With such a tool, naive users can begin to discover, explore, and use Semantic Web data and services. Because data and services are accessed directly through a standalone client rather than through a central point of access (e.g., a portal), new content and services can be consumed as soon as they become available. In this way we take advantage of an important sociological force that encourages the production of new Semantic Web content by remaining faithful to the decentralized nature of the Web.
