The perception:

Web 1.0 was Information – Web 2.0 is Interaction – Web 3.0 will be Immersion in the 3D Internet and the future of internet lies in the success of the Web 3.0 project.

The logic behind the perception:

The internet arguably is the most successful invention human has ever made. The most significant role is found in bringing the entire globe as next door neighbor to each other. More than a billion users are simultaneously browsing a single system of World Wide Web for numerous reasons.

The journey does not get ended here and the service Project 3.0 and STI international has started focusing primarily on an initiative called Future Internet. ‘Semantic web’ is what a web 3.0 preferably called, is a term coined by Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor the World Wide Web.

The idea is to enable the machine read the web pages as much as a human can read them which allows the search engines and software agents to dig the internet and find whatever we are looking for.

The Internet has already become an integral part of human life and it is practically impossible to do away with the services that the internet provides to make the human life easier. Not only the physical infrastructure, software, and content of the internet will continue to play an important part in human lives, also the area and the scope of internet is expected to increase manifold in the time to come.

Web 3.0 is supposed to be addressing these anticipated developments and work towards the implementation each and every aspect of the framework programs and their projects. Semantic web is also supposed to support the research and technological development.

Service Web 3.0 aims to provision the exposition and consumption of billions of services via advanced Web technology.

To have an idea of what the Web 3.0 is up to, here’s appended few work areas that are being focused on:

  • Organise conferences and seminars of unique nature
  • Initiate community activities such as create, maintain, and publish road maps to plan and coordinate.
  • Implement and maintain standardization activities on semantic services per the descriptions.
  • Feasibility studies, white papers to introduce new business models and technology in the industry, also for raising the awareness for the new technologies, systematically coordinating Semantic Web Services and Semantic Web technology adoption.
  • Explore advantage of synergies through networking with research and other network projects related to similar area

The list is not at all comprehensive and the story of internet would never end. Four decades of continuous development of rapid advances, computing has always been subjected to revolutionary changes at all levels. The hardware, middle ware, network infrastructure, are not the only areas which have seen the change but more importantly the application itself.

We would rather conclude that the technology of Semantic Web or Web Service 3.0 transform the Internet from a network of information to a network of knowledge and services.
