- A semantic wiki is a wiki that has an underlying model of the knowledge described in its pages. Regular, or syntactic, wikis have structured text and untyped hyperlinks. Semantic wikis, on the other hand, provide the ability to capture or identify information about the data within pages, and the relationships between pages, in ways that can be queried or exported like a database. Semantic wikis were first proposed in the early 2000s, and began to be implemented seriously around 2005. As of 2011, the best-known semantic wiki software may be Semantic MediaWiki, while the best-known standalone semantic wiki may be Freebase.

- QUOTE: A Semantic Wiki is a Wiki enhanced with technologies developed by the Semantic Web community in order to encode more knowledge than just structured text and hyperlinks. Usually this extra knowledge is available in a formal language, so that machines can (at least partially) process it. In particular, machines can calculate new facts from the given facts.

- QUOTE: Semantic wikis provide the ability to capture (by humans), store and later identify (by machines) further meta-information or metadata about those articles and hyperlinks, as well as their relations.

- QUOTE: The problem of retrieving mathematical statements by their type and their relations to other statements is solved by semantic wikis — wikis that use semantic web technologies for knowledge representation (SemWiki 2006): Pages and links are usually typed with terms from ontologies (Oren & al, 2006. ... Semantic wikis as “community-authored knowledge models” (Schaffert, 2006) particularly support a collaborative workflow of stepwise formalisation of knowledge, ...

- QUOTE: ... Formalized knowledge is represented using semantic web frameworks and is thus accessible and reusable by web applications. Within the wiki, this knowledge can be used to propose enhanced features such as better document searching, suggesting new links, identifying acquaintance networks, dynamic content update, checking and notification, etc.

- A “semantic wiki” extends a wiki by “semantic technologies” like RDF, OWL, Topic Map, or Conceptual Graphs. The main idea is to make the inherent structure of a wiki – given by the strong linking between pages – accessible to machines (agents, services) beyond mere navigation. This is generally done by annotating existing navigational links with symbols that describe their meaning. For example, a link from Mozart to Salzburg could be annotated with lived in or born in.
