If you’re interested in the semantic web or generally want to hear from folks who are trying to push the envelope with what’s next on the web, I’d encourage you to attend this upcoming MIT/Stanford event on Web 3.0 and the semantic web:
Web 3.0: New Opportunities on the Semantic Web
Tuesday, November 20th, 2007 at 6 PM
Bishop Auditorium, Stanford University
We are well into the current era of the Web, commonly referred to as Web 2.0.
What lies on the horizon? Will Web 3.0 usher in the long awaited vision of the semantic web, as proposed by â€œFather of the Webâ€ Tim Berners-Lee more than ten years ago?
Join us for a lively panel session where some of the best emerging companies in the semantic web space present their different approaches to realizing the vision. The panel will address questions such as: How can we best implement the vision of the semantic web? What will we do with the web once it is structured with semantic information? What new applications will appear? Where is the consumer value and how should it be marketed? What new businesses can be built on top of the semantic web that are not possible today? Will the semantic web ultimately bring about a new intelligence that surpasses that of humanity, sparking a new era of non-biological evolution?
Join us and bring questions of your own – help us uncover the future of the web!
