Looking for Common Sense in the Semantic Web

The Semantic Web is potentially the massive global open knowledge base that Artificial Intelligence has been looking for since its origins. After two decades, Linked Open Data is the closest existing exemplar of such a resource. Nevertheless, LOD and similar, maybe bigger, private knowledge graphs have unlocked just a little beyond encyclopaedic question-answering. Many expected that the Semantic Web would encode common sense knowledge, i.e. what AI is mostly missing.
