It's quite simple, and it's called RDF based Linked Data. What does that 
give you? The web-like structure of Linked Data combined with the 
*explicit* (rather than implicit) machine- and human-comprehensible 
entity relationship semantics of RDF.

As already stated in an earlier post, I don't understand why "inference" 
and "reasoning" are words that are no longer associated (instinctively) 
with RDF as unique selling points. Being able to make increasingly 
precise sense of data (based on its entity relationship based structure) 
is a major virtue!
