Web 3.0

 

"People keep asking what Web 3.0 is. I think maybe when you've got an overlay of scalable vector graphics - everything rippling and folding and looking misty — on Web 2.0 and access to a semantic Web integrated across a huge space of data, you'll have access to an unbelievable data resource."

  - Tim Berners-Lee, 2006
 

With the hype that has surrounded the internet this past decade and, more recently, the advent of "Web 2.0" applications, everyone is starting to speculate what the next evolution of the internet will be.  Global debates of this still run hot, but there is little doubt that the next evolution will be coined "Web 3.0".  But just what does this actually mean?  As emerging technologies continue to unravel this defintion for us, there is one constant that we can use to define the concept of "Web 3.0".

 

Transforming the Web into a Global Database

 

Transforming the entire contents of the web into conceptiually a single database is the beginning towards defining just what "Web 3.0" actually is.  In order to amalgamate such vast information, there is a focus on ensuring that data can be consumed easily across the internet.  Publishing one's data on the internet has come in the form of reusable formats that can be remotely queried, such as XML, RDC, JSON and microformats.  This "Data Web" is the initial step in the way of full "Semantic Web" that enables a new level of data integration and application interoperability, which makes the data openly accessible and linkable as web pages. To make available structured data using RDF is the primarily focus in the "Data Web" phase. The full "Semantic Web" stage will so expand the scope that both structured and semi-structured or unstructured content will be widely available in Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL) semantic formats.

An evolutionary path to Artificial Intelligence


Web 3.0 has also been used to describe the progressive trend of artificial intelligence, which is becoming more prominent in the web like a quasi-human fashion. Some cynics believes that it is an unobtainable vision. However, this is being used in new technologies
on a mass level that yields amazing information like making predictions of hit songs from mining information on college music Web sites. There is also extensive debate on the driving forces behind Web 3.0.  Will it be the advent of intelligent systems, or will data emerge in a more organic fashion and how people interact with it?
 

The realization of the Semantic Web and Service Oriented Architecture


Another debate originates over the artificial intelligence direction in which Web 3.0 can be extent to Semantic web concept. Academic research is going on to develop such reasoning software that must be based on description logic and intelligent agents. These sorts of applications can perform logical reasoning operations through using sets of rules expressing logical relationships between concepts and data on the Web.

But some critics are disagree on the viewpoint, which describes that the Semantic Web would be the core of the 3rd generation of the Internet and suggests a formula to summarize Web 3.0.

Evolution towards 3D

 

The evolution of 3D technology is also being connected to Web 3.0 as this may be used on a massive scale due to its inherent characteristics. In this process, Web 3.0 would transform into a series of 3D spaces, taking the concept realized by the expansion of the software "Second Life".  This could open up new ways to connect and collaborate using 3D shared spaces.
