After many years, the semantic front is moving forward again. I wrote a little post about that here.
  1. Semantic support to refine solutions based on statistics
  2. A painfully slow but sure development of standards and projects to link a limited set of linguistic/unstructured data resources such as Wikipedia and some governmental sites with semantic repositories for better search
Of course, there will be progress in independent endeavours to improve natural language interfaces to semantic data bases...and people like me will like to see there some significant progress.
