Discussion on: Current state of Semantic Web

One of my colleagues has attended a conference where it was said that by the end of the next year 80% of enterprises will have their taxonomies and ontologies, but I just don't see this happening yet.

On the topic of triple stores, there is AllegroGraph and Amazon has recently launched Neptune, their graph database as a service. It supports both triple stores and property graphs. But that's just for the storage, lack of development tools frustrates... 😐

What was mentioned as a reason for that growth? RDF is around since 2004 but it's not widely used. Maybe 80 % of enterprises will have a few ontologies for some purposes, but I don't think the semantic web will ever take off.

What project are you using those techniques in?

I'd have to double check that.

We're not using it yet in production, but are willing to adopt. I work in market research and it would be used to connect and link statistical data from various industries and countries, for instance sport matches, their attendance, team owners, companies that support them, etc.
