Getting all the way to learning from reading is a big step.    (02)

An important intermediate step is to tag text, such as
web pages, with the kinds of semantic tags that have been
envisioned for the Semantic Web and other efforts.    (04)

Human-generated tags tend to be (a) extremely expensive
to insert, (b) inconsistent from one tagger to another,
and (c) unlikely to be written by the original authors.    (05)

The kind of learning/acquisition needed for tag generation
is less than what's needed for full understanding.  But if
one tool can do part of the work by inserting tags, other
tools and systems would have a leg up in doing more.    (06)
