"Web 3.0 Emerging", Professor James Hendler, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
As more and more data and information becomes available on the Web, new technologies that use explicit semantics for information organization are becoming desirable. New terms such as Linked Data, Semantic Web and Web 3.0 are used more and more, although there is increasing con- fusion as to what each means. In this talk, I will describe how different sorts of models can be used to link data in different ways. I will particu- larly explore different kinds of Web applications, from Enterprise Data Integration to Web 3.0 startups, government data release, the different needs of Web 2.0 and 3.0, the growing interest in “semantic search”, and the underlying technologies that power these new approaches.
