Note

The leading concern of the Semantic Web as in the vision of Tim Berners-Lee is that information on the web is to be made accessible for machines in order for these to be able to support humans. The concept of ontology in the Semantic Web, and as defined in Artificial Intelligence, takes this machine understanding perspective. This is roughly the view taken in the first 4 papers in our list below. Current developments in the internet have shown a increased interest in tagging and categorazation, albeit from a human understanding perspective. This position, somehow controversial from a 'pure' Semantic Web perspective, is taken in the last 2 papers in the list (by Gruber and Shirky).
