  • One of the main reasons that why semantic web technology is adopted slowly is its complexity: End user learning curve: understand language; learn tools (ontology editor, annotation tools) How end users engage? End tool needs application, not only tool (like editor) – application facilitate end user engagement. Ex: user get homepage for free {{PersonInfo}}{{Person}} Need end user to contribute data, but how? Allow user to contribute data, not only expert. Too build semantic web application, high learning curve: reasoner, editor, parser, browser, api, triple store, … One of the major barriers for the mass adoption of semantic technology is its complexity, for both end users and tool builders. Semantic Wiki provides an application infrastructure that serves for end users as a friendly interface to collaboratively provide/consume semantic data tool builders as a handy workbench to develop lightweight semantic web applications Demo Site:
