When will the world get Web 3.0

June 7, 2010

It is more than 10 years since Tim Berners-Lee expressed his vision of the semantic web; his 2001 Scientific American article remains one of the most cited (more than 10,000 times).

I have a dream for the Web [in which computers] become capable of analyzing all the data on the Web – the content, links, and transactions between people and computers. A ‘Semantic Web’, which should make this possible, has yet to emerge, but when it does, the day-to-day mechanisms of trade, bureaucracy and our daily lives will be handled by machines talking to machines. The ‘intelligent agents’ people have touted for ages will finally materialize.

Some people view that Web 3.0 is already here – Google’s implementation of snippets is one example, but it remains a work in progress.  About 900 experts responded to a recent Pew survey answering questions about the likelihood of the ‘semantic web’ realization. Below is their response. The respondent’s thoughts are posted here.
