The Web’s Future
At times I wonder what life will be like in 100 years. I can’t even begin to fathom the possibilities that lie ahead! We’ve seen the drastic metamorphosis of the Internet, social media, tablets and smart phones in the last 7 years. What’s next? Web 3.0!
With concepts like Apple’s Siri, it’s no surprise that the web will migrate in this direction. So what can we expect? You will recognize the following scenario. You and your friends want to check out a local band playing in the city. You go online to see the time they go on. You also look up directions to the event. You decide that you and your friends want to eat somewhere close the club. You research the nearby restaurants and decide on the place. This is what we do now. Our efforts take us to Google or your favorite search engine. Multiple searches are done and you land on many different web sites as you gather the intelligence needed to have a fun night out on the town.
With Web 3.0, you will be able to accomplish these multiple tasks with one simple step. Search engines will be able to accept complex search queries. An example might be, “Where is the XYZ Band playing tonight and what are show times? Are there any Italian restaurants nearby where we can eat before the show?” The new technology will search and organize all of the options for you and display the results in a very organized streamlined manner. You’re saved several steps and more importantly time.
What’s very cool, too, is that A.I. will be a part of the new world! Artificial Intelligence is essentially complex algorithms that learn about you and give recommendations based on your likes, dislikes and habits. Like it or not (I love it), this is the future!
