swrc:abstractAs the Semantic Web is gaining momentum, more semantic data is available online. Next generation Semantic Web applications have already explored this phenomenon by heavily relying on this huge amount of semantic content. Looking at the requirements of these applications, we show that there is a need for a comprehensive access point to the Semantic Web, taking into account the semantic nature of the online available knowledge. However, because they rely on "classical Web" techniques, existing solutions fail to fulfil this requirement. In this paper, we describe the design of WATSON, a gateway for the Semantic Web, which has been guided by the needs of Semantic Web applications and by lessons learnt from previous systems. We show how WATSON exploits the strengths of semantic technologies to provide fundamental functionalities for a more suitable access to online knowledge. We also report on using these functionalities to analyze the characteristics of the content of the Semantic Web.
