At bbgm, Deepak Singh writes about how the life science field is poised to take advantage of the Semantic Web since there's so much data, and all of it is interrelated. In the post, he takes his readers through many existing and some developing Semantic Web applications, and drills in on what the concept is and what it can offer life scientists. "The Semantic Web is essentially a backend framework for getting more information from the web of data," he says. "The Semantic Web will only be one part of that smarter backend, which will include everything from new data sources (mobile, geolocation, etc), distributed computing, database architectures, etc."
