Funded by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC grant no. G033579/1), this project aims to open up the semantic web to a wide audience through novel techniques that allow viewing and editing of semantic web representation languages in ordinary natural language, as opposed to the methods currently used, such as source coding or graphical interfaces, which require significant training.
