Web 3.0…….4.0????

December 30, 2008

Just as we are trying to wrap our heads around Web 2.0, Web 3.0 has stepped onto the scene offering better services-integrating multiple site into one like Blog Rovr and Facebook Connect. Blog Rovr tool uses blogs posting that you find interesting to find similiar blogs without you having to search for it. Facebook Connect is allowing us to log in to multiple sites using your facebook login information.

Let’s Recap:

Web 1.0 was the Hypertext/CGI Web. (the basics)

– Web 2.0 is the Community Web (for people: apps/sites connecting them).

– Web 3.0 is the Semantic Web (for machines).

Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 are a fork we are moving into now, where one is focused on internet architectures for people/community/usability and the other is focused on internet architectures for machines.

Web 4.0 is when these technologies come together to form what I call the “Learning Web”. This is moving more into the area of Artificial Intelligence.The Learning Web is where the Web is actually learning by itself and is a user alongside human users, generating new ideas, information and products without direct human input. This may be possible on a large-scale when more sensors/actuators/semantic structure/ontologies are advanced and in place someday (maybe 10-15 years).
