What is the Semantic Web (Web 3.0)

This video shows Tim Berners Lee talking about the semantic web or Web 3.0. How do we mash different formats of data together into a complete mash of data that understands HOW to talk to each other? Web 3.0? Is it about changing business layers and database layers to be able to communicate more effectively?

Update 1st July 2021

Of course the conversation that Tim has in this video is still very relevant. Times have moved on since 2018 very quickly. Now Schema data is prevalent and used by all the search engines to use the Internet as a HUGE Database. All websites should concentrate on using schema data within their websites in order to be properly indexed. More information here at Schema.org

Web 3.0 looks into ‘data re-use‘. Using various techniques the web will be able to re-use data that’s already been created and mash it together with other data in common formats to provide new sets of data – or different ways of looking at the data. We are looking at a sea change; data manipulation that filters data and joins data into a super warehouse. Changing data in a meaningful way – perhaps cure todays illnesses or improve peoples lives.

  1. Hi,
    I’m reading this content 9 years later, but it’s still interesting, not only retrospectively…
    Quick question, what software was used for the mindmap? It’s neat
