Semantic Web, since its inception, has gone through lot of developments in its relatively nascent existence; right from people's perception, to the standards and to its adoption by the industry and more importantly by the scientific community. This impressive growth only seems to increase. In this paper, we project this growth to the next 10 years and highlight some of the facets on which Semantic Web could have a major impact on. We also present the challenges that Semantic Web and its community has to deal with in order to get there.


This paper was presented at the workshop "What will the Semantic Web Look Like 10 Years from Now?" at the 11th International Semantic Web Conference, November 11-15, 2012, Boston, MA.
