Semantic Grid

In Semantic Grid information, computing resources and services are described using the semantic data model.

In this model the data and metadata are expressed through facts (small sentences). Therefore it becomes directly understandable for humans. This makes it easier for resources to be discovered and joined up automatically, which helps bring resources together to create virtual organizations. The descriptions constitute metadata and are typically represented using the technologies of the Semantic Web, such as the Resource Description Framework (RDF). It can be defined as "an extension of the current Grid in which information and services are given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation. "The use of Semantic Web and other knowledge technologies in Grid applications is sometimes described as the Knowledge Grid.
