According to Tim Berners-Lee, Director of the W3C,
there will be three modern-day technology revolutions.
The first occurred when the universal information space, called
the Internet, was established using such technologies as HTML
and HTTP. This undeniably impacted on our daily lives.
second revolution - the XML revolution - shifted the use of
the Web from being a publishing medium to serving as an application
processing architecture. Perhaps the biggest result of the
rise of XML is e-Business. The XML revolution has impacted
every business model today. It has lead to the emergence of
major new business dynasties and changed the playing field
what's the third revolution? Can information technologies
have another trump card waiting to be played? The answer is
YES. We are at the dawn of the third revolution - where it
is the rise of the Semantic Web. This shift of the Web from
an information-based structure to a knowledge-based structure
will revolution our industry just like HTML and XML
did earlier. This new revolution will introduce "knowledge
technologies" to our community.
leaders are preparing. Are you?
