Web in Supplementing Human Intelligence for Knowledge Creation and Management

Editor Informatics Studies


We have moved from Web 1.0 technologies, which were content driven, and where the users have no way to increase their involvement or interact with the interface. Web 2.0 went further from mere posting of content by allowing user interaction and participation to user-friendly interface where one can edit and publish the existing content. Web 2.0 is characterized by increased interactivity and collaboration among Internet users, content providers and enterprises; more pervasive network connectivity and enhanced communication channels. Its other improved functionalities include open communication with an emphasis on Web-based communities of users, and more open sharing of information.  Blogs, Wikis, and Web services are all seen as its components.  The model of Web 3.0's machine-classified, data sharing world creates a basis for ubiquitous computing, also known as pervasive computing, a scenario in which embedded processing in everyday objects enables intercommunication and unobtrusive data sharing throughout the user's environment. The concept overlaps with that of the Internet of Things (IoT), in which almost any entity or object imaginable can be outfitted with a unique identifier (UID) and the ability to exchange data automatically. Experts predict that Web 3.0 (the Semantic Web) will be the next logical step in the evolution of the Internet where computers will be generating raw data on their own, devices will be exchanging data between each other and even generating new information. The Internet will be before long able to perform tasks faster and more efficiently, such as search engines being able to search for the actual individual users interests, and not just for the keyword typed into search engines. This is a note from editors on these amazing developments in the context of articles in the present issue.
