Web 3.0? Semantic Web? What’s all this guff about?
In the heart of Silicon Valley, at what is referred to, somewhat romantically, as the ‘web’s edge’, something is stirring.
A new type of internet is being imagined, far more powerful that the one which lets you link up with your friends or watch a video uploaded by a stranger.
In a little over a decade, according to the engineers building the internet of tomorrow, the web will be able to connect every aspect of our digital lives – be it a website, an e-mail, or a file on our PC – to every other aspect. It will know, for instance, when you are typing an e-mail, what the subject of the e-mail is, and be able to suggest websites and books as well as documents, photos and videos you have saved that may be relevant to that topic.
