That's the semantic drift problem. It's a known. You Trust But Verify where you get out-of-bounds answer. The issue is locality and communication among locales. See prior post about separation of ontology and schema. I'm sitting here trying to finish an article for a magazine on semantic web issues to examine operational issues of the semantic web. As I've said before, anyone who thinks this gets turned on without a lot of testing, and yes, continuous testing, is smoking dope. Machine communications are actually less precise than human communications but a lot faster and that is a danger. A local Chinese national tells me the Chinese symbol for entropy combines the symbols for business and fire. While the cheerleaders for the semantic web cheer loudly, there are also soft whispers of caution from the gallery. A lot of games have to be played in a season to get a national champion.

That is with enough distance, the terms are not at all equivalent despite the linking. The possibility of the semantic web equivalent of chinese whispers would be a reasonably serious problem. Does anyone have an example of that?
