Data Web

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Data Web transforms the Web from a distributed file system into a distributed database system.[1]

Rather than webpages, pieces of data (RDF triples) and records formed from them (sets, trees, graphs or objects). Some of these could even come from databases.

Tim Berners-Lee has suggested that Data Web may be a more appropriate name for the Semantic Web.[2] Tim O'Reilly, who coined the term Web 2.0 has mentioned that the long-term vision of the Semantic Web as a web of data, where sophisticated applications manipulate the data web.[3]
