Enable the Semantic Web by providing some simple tools that make the web a giant distributed Database.

provides a set of protocols and conventions that create a coherent Semantic Web out of independently produced bits of information, and a simple API to navigate.

Local, independently managed knowledge bases can be aggregated to form selected centers of knowledge useful for particular applications.

TAP is developed by R.V. Guha, IBM and Rob McCool, Stanford.

Example Application - Semantic Search

Search query results augmented with content from TAP knowledge base (example distributed aggregation; intranet)
