  • Summary: The “chaotic Web” and the lack of interoperability between connected but autonomous information systems, either within one or across several organisations. These present manifestations of the same problem: lack of semantics. The solution: Computer-based ontologies as repositories of data semantics, to be used as agreed standard reference points for meaning, documentation, agreements, designs,…
