Web 3.0: The Third Generation Web is Coming

Web 3.0: The Third Generation Web is Coming
by Lifeboat Foundation Scientific Advisory Board member Nova Spivack. Overview The Web is entering a new phase of evolution. There has been much debate recently about what to call this new phase. Some would prefer to not name it all, while others suggest continuing to call it “Web 2.0”. However, this new phase of evolution has quite a different focus from what Web 2.0 has come to mean. Web 3.0 John Markoff of the New York Times recently suggested naming this third-generation of the Web, “Web 3.0”. More Intelligent Web The threshold to the third-generation Web will be crossed in 2007. Timeline and Definition Web 1.0. Conclusion Web 3.0 will be more connected, open, and intelligent, with semantic Web technologies, distributed databases, natural language processing, machine learning, machine reasoning, and autonomous agents.

Web 3.0 - definition of Web 3.0, the Semantic Web, BuzzWord from Macmillan Dictionary. noun[uncountable] a third phase in the evolution of the World Wide Web, based on the idea that the Internet 'understands' the pieces of information it stores and is able to make logical connections between them 'With Web 3.0, it's about the Web becoming smarter, getting to know you better from your browsing history (and all you've contributed to it during Web 2.0) and automatically delivering content to you that is relevant.' 13th May 2010

Web 3.0 – Artificial Intelligence? Representing the Digital Enterprise Research Institute, Liam Ó Móráin , recently discussed the work of the DERI on the Semantic Web and the move from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0. Liam explains how the evolution of Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 (also known as Semantic Web) is taking the web experience to the user in a new and more powerful way. Web 3.0 will quickly and easily combine information from very diverse sources and serve the information to the user, based on intelligent browsing. It is due to the power of the Semantic Web that Google and other search applications serve up, not just what you search for but also related links which are specific to your search history, demographic area and personal browsing preferences. Google and other sites, such as Amazon are able to serve user-specific content within seconds, using the powerful, artificially intelligent brain of Web 3.0.

Semantic Web The Semantic Web is an extension of the Web through standards by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).[1] The standards promote common data formats and exchange protocols on the Web, most fundamentally the Resource Description Framework (RDF). According to the W3C, "The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries".[2] The term was coined by Tim Berners-Lee for a web of data that can be processed by machines.[3] While its critics have questioned its feasibility, proponents argue that applications in industry, biology and human sciences research have already proven the validity of the original concept.[4] Example[edit] In the following example, the text 'Paul Schuster was born in Dresden' on a Website will be annotated, connecting a person with its place of birth. The following HTML-fragment shows, how a small graph is being described, in RDFa-syntax using vocabulary and a Wikidata ID:

YAGO - D5: Databases and Information Systems (Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik) Overview YAGO is a huge semantic knowledge base, derived from Wikipedia WordNet and GeoNames. Currently, YAGO has knowledge of more than 10 million entities (like persons, organizations, cities, etc.) and contains more than 120 million facts about these entities. YAGO is special in several ways: The accuracy of YAGO has been manually evaluated, proving a confirmed accuracy of 95%. Every relation is annotated with its confidence value.YAGO combines the clean taxonomy of WordNet with the richness of the Wikipedia category system, assigning the entities to more than 350,000 classes.YAGO is an ontology that is anchored in time and space. Web 3.0: What The Internet Could Look Like Without Net Neutrality What will the Web look like without net neutrality? Net neutrality is dead, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday, invalidating Federal Communications Commission rules requiring Internet service providers to treat all traffic equally. So-called net neutrality principles stipulate that telecoms can't block, stifle or discriminate against traffic. But the U.S.

What is Web 3.0? Semantic Web & other Web 3.0 Concepts Explained in Plain English Web 3.0 will be about semantic web, personalization (e.g. iGoogle), intelligent search and behavioral advertising among other things. This slide neatly sums up the main differences between Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.0. Web 1.0 – That Geocities & Hotmail era was all about read-only content and static HTML websites. People preferred navigating the web through link directories of Yahoo!

The Semantic Web, Syllogism, and Worldview The Semantic Web, Syllogism, and Worldview First published November 7, 2003 on the "Networks, Economics, and Culture" mailing list. Subscribe to the mailing list. The W3C's Semantic Web project has been described in many ways over the last few years: an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning, a place where machines can analyze all the data on the Web, even a Web in which machine reasoning will be ubiquitous and devastatingly powerful. The problem with descriptions this general, however, is that they don't answer the obvious question: What is the Semantic Web good for?

How Web 3.0 Will Work" You've decided to go see a movie and grab a bite to eat afterward. You're in the mood for a comedy and some incredibly spicy Mexican food. Booting up your PC, you open a Web browser and head to Google to search for theater, movie and restaurant information. Web 3.0 Upcoming! New Technologies That Will Blow Your Mind As Web 3.0 promises to be one of the most immersive interactive experiences known to mankind, no longer are many of the fantastic ideas being touted by tech companies merely stuff of science fiction. Google, for example, has several experimental products that promise to lead the way for web-based technology this decade, such as augmented reality headsets and the driverless car. Others hope that new universal operating systems might help usher those of us with little to no internet or social media experience into the Web 3.0 era. Below is a list of several existing and upcoming examples of Web 3.0 technology to keep your eyes on in the months ahead. 5 New Web 3.0 Technologies That Will Blow Your Mind Google Driverless Car: Not since the days of Knight Rider on network television has there been this much excitement surrounding the prospect of owning a car that drives itself.

Basic Definitions: Web 1.0, Web. 2.0, Web 3.0 “What do people mean when they talk about the Web 2.0?” is a query we receive repeatedly, and probably has as many answers as the number of people out there using the term. However, since talk about the Web 3.0 has surfaced in the last year or so, a whole new level of confusion seems to have set in. In an effort to help people understand the ideas behind buzzwords like Web 2.0 and Web 3.0, let’s go through what exactly these terms mean (if anything), and how they apply to your ecommerce business.

Collective intelligence: an interview with Pierre Levy About Eelke Hermens Hacker and cultural critic, passionate about information theory and semantics. Fed up with cyber utopians. In a previous post I discussed and, hopefully, debunked some common assumptions on the next phase of the World Wide Web, or web 3.0. The general assumption is that in the 2.0 era the user was at the centre, the produser took control and the cult of the amateur was born. The web was being flooded with what seems an infinite amount of user generated content. Big platforms, such as Flickr and Facebook managed to centralize and collect some of these efforts effectively.
