OWL flies as Web ontology language "OWL enables applications such as Web portal management, multimedia collections that cannot respond to English language-based search tools, Web services and ubiquitous computing, W3C said."
W3C Issues OWL as Candidate Recommendation "So what can OWL be used for? The OWL Working Group identified six main areas:
* Web portals, where it can be used to create categorization rules to enhance search
* Multimedia collections, where it can be used to enable content-based searches for non-text media
* Corporate Web site management, where it can be used for automated taxonomical organization of data and documents, as well as mapping between corporate sectors
* Design documentation, where it can be used for explication of 'derived' assemblies (like the wing span of an aircraft) and the explicit management of constraints
* Intelligent agents, where it can be used for expressing user preferences and/or interests, as well as content mapping between Web sites
* Web services and ubiquitous computing, where it can be used for Web service discovery and composition as well as rights management and access control."
