Semantic Web

According to wikipedia the Semantic Web is an evolving extension of the World Wide Web in which web content can be expressed not only in natural language, but also in a format that can be read and used by automated tools, thus permitting people and machines to find, share and integrate information more easily. It derives from W3C director Tim Berners-Lee‘s vision of the Web as a universal medium for data, information, and knowledge exchange.

This sounds at least to me very abstract. Bernhard Angerer, Co-founder of Semantic Business Solutions explained me his vision how companies might benefit from the semantic web.

Tim Berner’s-Lee vision of the semantic web:I have a dream for the Web [in which computers] become capable of analyzing all the data on the Web – the content, links, and transactions between people and computers. A ‘Semantic Web’, which should make this possible, has yet to emerge, but when it does, the day-to-day mechanisms of trade, bureaucracy and our daily lives will be handled by machines talking to machines. The ‘intelligent agents’ people have touted for ages will finally materialize.
