The term „Semantic Web“ was coined in 2001 when Tim Berners Lee (the inventor of the World Wide Web) and others presented their vision of an intelligent web in the „Scientific American“. The Semantic Web aims at the development of methods that help to automate the interpretation, aggregation, evaluation and comparison of information on the Web.
