What about Nepomuk?

The Nepomuk project in KDE aimed at implementing the vision of "The Semantic Desktop" using RDF. After years of trying the developers felt that while many of the ideas behind "The Semantic Desktop" were great. Implementing them using RDF and classical semantics was not the way to go.

The Baloo project is just a file indexing solution for KDE. Everything that Nepomuk provided is now handled by other software which are part of the KDE Umbrella.
