Think about what it would be like to turn the current version of the World Wide Web into a giganda global database. So, instead of just searching for documents, you could actually use the Web to search, calculate, sort and aggregate real live data. For the next generation of the world wide web, it’s all about semantics. Specifically, the future Web may be able to process relationships between things and the properties of things. It’s not touted as artificial intelligence, wherein computers would be trained to understand data like a person. Instead, the goal is to develop a computer code or language that would make it possible for computers to process information. Looks like the development of the semantic Web has only just begun but if you want to keep tabs on it, visit the World Wide Web Consortium’s site on Semantic Web.
