Annotating is the act of expressing knowledge about a “resource”. A variety of web annotation tools is appearing on the scene, so how does Pundit differ from others?
The main idea behind Pundit is to enable users not only to comment, bookmark or tag web pages, but also to create semantically structured data while annotating, thus enriching the so called Web of Data.
Thus, by semantically structured annotations we mean the ability for users to create knowledge graphs where web content fragments, concepts and entities are meaningfully connected.
The ability to express semantically typed relations among resources, relying on ontologies and specific vocabularies, not only enables users to express unambiguous and precise semantics, but also, more interestingly, fosters the reuse of such collaboratively created knowledge within other web applications.
For example: providing a powerful semantic search, building innovative ad-hoc data visualizations or ultimately improving the way users explore the web.
