Re: Always Just Beyond The Horizon
EMC sells an enterprise storage software product based on Semantic Web technologies. They discussed it at a few conferences in 2012.

Re: Always Just Beyond The Horizon
I'm with you on this, Doug.  I've been listening to semantic web advocates for a decade in the government space but remain convinced that its power is still hopelessly dependent on people adhering to prescribed metacoding conventions in a world that has grown used to the brute force of search.

Re: Always Just Beyond The Horizon
One of these slideshows confirms my suspicion: an unnamed global bank and an unnamed national intelligence agency. The second slide show details generic app descriptions, but no names of actual companies putting them into practice.

Needs more visability
The problem is that at the moment the way semantic structure is implimented is too easy to game and Google etc stop supporting it as new exploits are found. Its also not present enough. Theres already schema.org which gives you markup for products etc but with no systems using this data theres no need to go to the trouble of putting it in place. make it visible and the web developers and online marketeers will jump all over it... just look at author profiles.

Re: Always Just Beyond The Horizon
There is plenty of practical, real world examples if you care to look around!

Just a few of the examples can be found at:

Always Just Beyond The Horizon
Yes, we've been hearing about the Semantic Web for years, but can anyone share practical examples of applications that are real in the hear and now? Perhaps it's a nichey domain, like complex event processing, where people talk about mainstream adoption, but it's only practiced in rarified domains like national intelligence and a score of big banks and trading floors.
