Parallel Semantic Search

April 27th, 2007

This post does not report any new work. Rather this is a piece of work looking for coders.
I personally don’t care much for the semantic web because the performance of reasoning even on simple ontologies is often very bad. I am currious to see if the performance could be improved if someone parallelized a semantic reasoner like Jena and ran it on a grid like Bluegrit. Deepblue showed that a parallel architecture can be very effective at graph search problems. Usually reasoning is approached as a graph search problem, so can we create a super fast semantic reasoner on our grid?
