In traditional software, the meaning of data highly depends on the implementation (of the software). In general, every implementation interprets data independently from other implementations. Hence, machine-interoperability is impractical if not impossible. Semantic technologies answer the aforementioned problem by encoding semantics (meanings) separately from data and implementations. In this talk, we provide a brief introduction to semantic technologies. We mainly focus on the area from Semantic Web perspective. After discussing some foundational concepts, we describe few important formalisms behind the technologies. Finally, we discuss some possible application areas.
