The goal is to make domain-specific context, nomenclature, and the language used to describe content and services on the web unambiguous from a computing perspective. Its underlying formalisms and technologies have evolved from more than two decades of research in knowledge representation, computational linguistics, and automated reasoning. MDA and the Semantic Web were conceived independently and evolved with little crosspollination over the course of several years. However, participants from both communitie
