The Semantic Web, as defined by Ontotext[1] is the extension of the existing information and data on a network (or Web) to include data descriptors, which are intended to allow machines to make “meaningful interpretations” of the information in a similar way to how humans process information.

Evolution of the Semantic Web is leading to the development of the automation of information retrieval, the Internet of Things (IoT), and personal assistants. In the context of the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry, benefits and efficiencies can be expected from the automation of information retrieval (or other autonomous information management process) and the IoT, which will allow managers to collect, review and act on real time information.
