In this Tech Rising podcast, eWEEK Chief Technology Analyst Jim Rapoza speaks to Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the Web and head of the World Wide Web Consortium, about the current status of the Semantic Web, the challenges it faces and its future. Jim also speaks to Eric Miller, president of Zepheira, a company that helps businesses deploy and leverage Semantic Web technologies, and to Stephen Downes, a researcher at the National Research Council's Institute for Information Technology in Canada, who believes that the Semantic Web will ultimately fail because of proprietary data protections.
