Since Internet terminology has the lifespan of a housefly, I figured it wouldn’t take long to see what form the term “Web 3.0” would take and what it would define. Here’s a clue: Soylent Green is people.
According to Paul Sweeney, Founder and CTO of semantic technology firmPrimal Fusion, the future of the Web won’t rely on pesky things like social media, citizen journalism, or professional reporting. Instead expect to seeWeb content generated by semantic technologiesthat will render actual writers obsolete. Uh-oh.
“Today, most [Web] content is still created by hand, the best of it by highly skilled artisans drawing on centuries of scholarship and experience. Recently, we’ve seen significant innovations in social approaches to content creation. But Web 3.0 industrialization takes content manufacturing to an entirely different level. Instead of users manually creating content, machines automate the heavy lifting,” says Sweeny.
“Billions are being spent worldwide on semantic technologies to create the factories and specialized machinery for manufacturing content, …and the most productive information services in the world are those that leverage Web 3.0 industrial processes and technologies,” he says.
