Web 3.0 – Hype or Reality

February 14, 2007

Now that the concept of Web 2.0 has been around for a while (in internet time), there is a growing buzz about 3.0. The Web 3.0 blog delivers a manifesto on the next level – the semantic web where Artificial Intelligence agents go beyond Web Services “…with the help of artificial intelligence and the integration of The Human Computing Layer, will allow us to cooperatively solve a class of problems normally reserved for specialized applications found in the areas of complex pattern recognition and high level semantic analysis.”

Heady stuff.  Yet worth considering for healthcare. Intelligent agents and semantics (or taxonomy) is essential in taking ehealth to the next level.  With all the advantages of Web 2.0 tagging and social networks, the volume of data is exploding and we need agents to semantically organize our knowledge whether it is about a personal illness or condition or one we are research a treatment for.
