Like other technologies, the web site is evolving and it evolves quite quickly. Due to the lack of standards, it seems to be a bit slight about its development and versions, but acceptable levels of development are as follows:
- Web 1.0
- Web 2.0
- Web 3.0 (Also Known as the Ethics Web)
So, which is the difference between these versions?
Web 1.0: The Internet for 1999, experts called it Read only times. The average internet user was limited to reading the information he introduced. The best examples are millions of static websites that mushroomed on the.com Boom. There was no active communication or information flow from the consumers of the information to the manufacturer of the information.
Web 2.0: The lack of active communication of common web site users leads to births of Web 2.0. In 1999, the start of the Read-Writing-Publish period was a remarkable contribution from LiveJournal (launched in April 1999) and Blogger (launched in August 1999). Now, even users can actively interact and promote the web by using different blogging space. This period shared the user with some new ideas viz. Blogs, social media and video feeds. Your content is only a few clicks away! The few prominent developments on web 2.0 are Twitter, YouTube, eZineArticles, Flickr and Facebook.
Web 3.0: It seems we have everything we would have liked in Web 2.0, but it's far behind it when it comes to intelligence. Perhaps a six year old child has better analytical skills than current search technology! Keyword-based search on Web 2.0 resolved in information sharing. The following features are becoming part of Web 3.0:
- Contextual Search
- Custom Search
- Personal Search
- 3D Development
- Deductive Reasoning
Although Web Still seeing something that can be mentioned as quite intelligent, but the effort to achieve this goal has already begun. 2 weeks back Official Google Blog mentioned how the Google algorithm is now being diagnosed as it can identify multiple synonyms.
For example Pictures and images are now rated as similar in meaning. From now on your search query GM breeding will not lead you to GM (General Motors) website. Why? Cause, first with synonym, Google will understand that GM can translate General Motors or genetically modified. Then with a context, ie. Using the crop will reduce the user's desire for GM crops and not General Motors. Similarly, a GM car will not lead you to GM crops. Try yourself to check how this newly added artificial intelligence works in Google. There are also many websites based on Web 3.0 that customize your search. The web is definitely getting intelligent.
