Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a free, open-source extension to MediaWiki – the wiki software that powers Wikipedia – that lets you store and query data within the wiki's pages. Semantic MediaWiki is also a full-fledged framework, in conjunction with many spinoff extensions, that can turn a wiki into a powerful and flexible collaborative database. All data created within SMW can easily be published via the Semantic Web , allowing other systems to use this data seamlessly. Found errors or omissions?

W3C's Semantic Web logo The Semantic Web is a collaborative movement led by the international standards body, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). [ 1 ] The standard promotes common data formats on the World Wide Web . By encouraging the inclusion of semantic content in web pages, the Semantic Web aims at converting the current web dominated by unstructured and semi-structured documents into a "web of data". The Semantic Web stack builds on the W3C's Resource Description Framework (RDF). [ 2 ] According to the W3C, "The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries." [ 2 ] The term was coined by Tim Berners-Lee , [ 3 ] the inventor of the World Wide Web and director of the World Wide Web Consortium (" W3C "), which oversees the development of proposed Semantic Web standards.
