Akonadi is a special tool which is designed to eat up RAM without doing anything useful.

nepomuk is a special application which is designed to crash the moment you log in.

Truly, I have no idea what they are for. Kubuntu is the only distro I've tried that has them enabled. Most others switch them off by default and several don't even install akonadi.

I think, like so much else in KDE4, they're just not finished yet but might be useful when they are.
