The semantic web has been evolving and brings the powerful AI concept in contact with web infrastructure. It is the presentation of machine-processable semantics of data on the web. It is a collaborative effort led by W3C Consortium with participation of a large number of researchers and industrial partners. This paper describes the use of semantic web technology for use in faded information field architecture in order to create and deliver the technology with information provision and utilization. A Faded Information Field is a set of computers around an information provider where the information provider distributes its information contents. Thus, the information of the provider is replicated to surrounding nodes, creating a "Field" of information. The main goal is to guarantee assurance of autonomous service provision and autonomous utilization. To reuse data across the internet, a common framework is needed that allows data to be shared and reused. RDF is a language intended to be used to express propositions using precise formal vocabularies for access and use over the World Wide Web. Faded Information Field architecture brings flexibility, reliability and real-time property to the information environment. This research mainly gives a method and is based on a prototype of FIF but the methodology needs to be established well. Effective and efficient protocol for communication requires an advanced ontology for expression and representation.
