Panel Discussion

The title of the panel discussion is:
"Is Standardisation of Web Semantics possible and desirable?"

The panelists will try to give answers to the following questions:

  • Are the existing standards (e.g. RDF, Topic Maps) sufficient?
  • Is interoperability on a semantic level feasible in the next 3-5 years?
  • Do future intelligent-web-agents need further standardisation?
