In the ever changing world today, where nothing is constant “change” is the only thing that is constant. This we all might have heard several times. But how and where do we find these changes..?? Is this in our environment, nature, where we see the sun rises and sets at the it’s own time or is it in our daily routine..? It is rather toilsome to find answers to these questions but what is evident from this is that, we all need changes. And the changes which we can relate to our everyday life are always welcomed with open arms. Similar, is the change brought by Tim Berners-Lee, founder of the World Wide Web, in the form of “Web 3.0” .
With the time proceeding ahead there are diverse alterations in technology. Take the web for instance; it has dwelled from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 i.e. from just an informative web to a more interactive one. Tim Berners-Lee, has come up with Web 3.0 which is also known as ‘semantic web’.
Tim Berners-Lee expressed his views on Web 3.0, as his dream to merge all the links, data and the interactions between the web and users through an intelligent search which even the computer can read and relate to. After this you might have got the rough idea about Web 3.0. In layman terms, you can say it is an intelligent interface between the computers and the web.
As in Web 2.0 ,we can socially interact with the web, which can be addressed as a duplex communication where there is two ways interactivity to read and write, but this interaction is understood only by humans . This is not going to be the case with Web 3.0. The machines are going to be endued with intelligence so that it can read the Web as much as we humans can and give us a more precise and accurate search results. These search results will be a combination of artificial intelligence and semantic web which all together will form a database which gives the admittance to both the machines and the web to incur the information postulated.
Web 3.0 will embark much more than just social networking, collaboration of various websites, use and create applications. It will commence the era of intelligent search with versatile web applications . This will wreak a new platform for open sourced data and software sources via the application programming interfaces (API’s). But, this will increase the security risk. Thus, for Web 3.0 to come into existence is going to take a longer duration of time may be more than it took to bring the Web into existence.
