The link below walks you through the process
of answering these eight realistic questions
using current "Semantic Web" tools.

    Who plays for the Boston Celtics?
    Where is Carleton College?
    Who is the CEO of Microsoft?
    What is the average cost of a meal at Sardi's?
    Where can I get Panofsky and Phillips textbook?
    When does Los Angeles play Sacramento?
    How do I get from my house to the airport?
    Why did the chicken cross the road?

In each case, the MKR language provides an
interactive, user-friendly interface to MKE, 
which may call upon TAP, Google, Amazon, OpenCyc --
as appropriate for the particular question.

The OpenCyc answers to the last two questions
are not yet available.  The MKE/OpenCyc
interface is under development.

Using MKE + TAP offers some unique advantages.
1. You don't have to know RDF (MKR language).
2. You don't have to use full URIs (TAP Abbreviator).
3. The knowledge base is rapidly expanding (TAP Rover).
