A Search Engine for the Semantic Web

SemSearch is a semantic search engine, which is designed for naïve users, i.e., ordinary end users who are not necessarily familiar with domain specific semantic data, ontologies, or SQL-like query Languages. It hides the complexity of semantic search from end users by supporting a Google-like query interface and by providing comprehensive means to translate user queries into formal queries.
