Wikipedia's definition: A 'Web service' [...] is defined by the W3C as "a software system designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network." Web services are frequently just Web APIs that can be accessed over a network, such as the Internet, and executed on a remote system hosting the requested services.
The "Semantic Web" is defined in Wikipedia as an evolving extension of the World Wide Web in which the semantics of information and services on the web is defined, making it possible for the web to understand and satisfy the requests of people and machines to use the web content. The W3C Semantic Web Activity page is an excellent resource for links to activity around the Semantic Web.
