Augmented Reality is an emerging technology and the Semantic Web is an ideal candidate to become the fabric for Augmented Reality applications. The global availability of the web and the flexibility of RDF, make it a perfect match for distributed, heterogeneous and networked applications that can help to enable emergent Augmented Reality services.
In this informal session we will introduce some of the key concepts and discuss how the Augmented Reality conversation can immediately benefit from Semantic Web technologies and concepts. The key Semantic Web technologies are now in place and can finally start to deliver real benefits. After all the goal is to realize and bring the web to it's full potential.
