    • 4. What’s Next? (Beyond Web 2.0)
      • Web Sites Become Web Services
        • “ Unstructured information will give way to structured information - paving the road to more intelligent computing.” ( Alex Iskold, ReadWriteWeb, Mar 07 )
        • Examples: Amazon E-Commerce API, API, Twitter API, Dapper, Yahoo! Pipes (scraping technologies)
        • Pages not center of Web now, Data & Services are
        • 90% of Twitter activity happens through its API
      • Intelligent Web = data is getting smarter ( ref: Nova Spivack, Twine, Oct 07 )
        • Semantic Web
        • Filters / recommendations
        • Personalization
      • Beyond PC - mobile, IPTV, physical world integration
    • 5. Semantic Web
      • Machines talking to machines
      • Making the Web more 'intelligent’
      • Tim Berners-Lee: computers "analyzing all the data on the Web‚ the content, links, and transactions between people and computers.”
      • Bottom Up = annotate, metadata, RDF!
      • Top Down = Simple
      Image credit: dullhunk
      • Top-down:
      • Leverage existing web information
      • Apply specific, vertical semantic knowledge
      • Deliver the results as a consumer-centric web app
    • 6. Semantic Web in Practice
      • Semantic Web in The Real World
      • - Not necessarily W3C Semantic Web
      • An app that determines the meaning of text and other data, and then creates connections for users
      • Data portability and connectibility are keys (ref: Nova Spivack)
      Example: Calais Reuters, the international business and financial news giant, launched an API called Open Calais in Feb 08. The API does a semantic markup on unstructured HTML documents - recognizing people, places, companies, and events. Ref: Reuters Wants The World To Be Tagged ; Alex Iskold, ReadWriteWeb, Feb 08
