Abstract: The emerging Semantic Web will result in an enormous amount of Web Knowledge Base (webKB) resources. However, whats the proper way for organizing and managing those webKBs? How does the inference happen in Semantic Web where so heterogeneous and decentralized KBs are involved? This paper introduces a grid architecture in term of the Knowledge Base Grid (KB-Grid) for semantic web to address aforementioned challenges. We first review the knowledge and semantic requirements of future web. Then we articulate the core components of KB-Grid: a knowledge server as the web container for knowledge, a semantic browser as the user interface for semantic query answering and the KB-MDS as the meta-directory for webKB resources discovery and registration. A Petri-net based inference model for semantic web were also introduced.
