Inference

If a person C is a male and childOf a person A, then person C is a “sonOf” person A.

If a
person B is a male and siblingOf a person A, then person B is a “brotherOf” person
A.

If a person C is a “sonOf” person A, and person B is a “brotherOf” person A, then
person B is the “uncleOf” person C.


The Semantic Web will
happen!

Time to learn the
technologies! (RDF,
Taxonomies, Ontologies)
