The Semantic Web – It’s Coming Sooner than You Think
If you want to see what this may look like, go to this site. I typed in “virtual instrumentation” and came up with a fairly cogent list of web links related to the topic. It clearly uses Wikipedia as its primary source.
For those who are not familiar with the Semantic web the Wikipedia definition defines it as “information and services on the web is defined, making it possible for the web to understand and satisfy the requests of people and machines to use the web content.”
