We present the SmartWeb Demonstrator for multimodal and mobile querying of semantic resources and the open WWW. The end-user interface consists of a Pocket Data Assistant which accepts written or spoken questions as input and delivers answers based on a multitude of resources including a semantic knowledge base, semantically annotated online web services, and semi-automatically created knowledge from text-based web pages. If answers cannot be found using these structured resources, then the system returns answers based on linguistic query-answering techniques on the open WWW.
