What is Semantic Exchange?
Semantic Exchange is a collaborative industry news, research, and education initiative about all things web 3.0 and semantic web, and sponsored by industry leading semantic technology providers. Whether you are a newcomer to semantic technologies or already have experience developing and applying them, the goal of Semantic Exchange is to answer your questions, help you better keep up with the rapid pace of technology and infrastructure development, and connect with the people and companies making the next stage of the internet happen.
Semantic Exchange educational activities include monthly webinars, briefings, publications, and media articles. It's hands on, too. Semantic Exchange partners are helping build an open collaborative industry news, research, and education portal about all things web 3.0 and semantic web. This site is part semantic community wiki, part internet magazine, part technology showcase for new capabilities, and part knowledge outfitter where you can gain access to both commercial and open source tools, widgets, building blocks, and solution blueprints. Also, Semantic Exchange is sponsoring a “smart innovators laboratory” where public and private sector organizations can gain access to expertise, research, and technologies, and can conduct pilot tests to prove out the benefits of semantic solutions.

Why do you care?
Web 3.0 is the next phase of internet evolution. It uses semantic technologies to cope with challenges of scale, complexity, security, and mobility, as well as provide intelligent, rich media interaction and autonomous behavior that make our experience of internet more relevant, useful, enjoyable (and profitable). The key shift is from information-centric to knowledge-centric patterns of computing and communication that will fuel billion-dollar technology markets and trillion-dollar economic expansions worldwide over the next decade.
