I don't know if this qualifies as "real application", since it isn't widely 
deployed yet...

I have an interest in the CC/PP activity to define client capabilities in 
RDF.  I come to this from my work in IETF CONNEG, which takes a far more 
deterministic approach than generalized RDF to matching client capabilities 
and document content.  RFC 2533 describes a feature description and 
matching framework that was modelled on (a subset of) Prolog.

Following the ideas in <http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/Toolbox.html> I 
would anticipate one could build a similar model, and apply similar 
matching capabilities, to a client capability framework built in RDF.  It's 
not AI, but I think this is exactly the kind of thing an RDF-linked Prolog 
engine could be useful for.
