AI Meets Web 2.0: Building The Web Of Tomorrow Today
Imagine an Internet-scale Knowledge System where people and intelligent agents can collaborate on solving complex problems in business, engineering, science, medicine, and other endeavors.. Its resources include semantically tagged Websites, Wikis and Blogs, as well as social networks, vertical Search engines and a vast array of Web services from business processes to AI planners and domain models. Research prototypes of decentralized knowledge systems have been demonstrated for years, but now, thanks to the Web and Moore’s Law, they appear ready for prime time. I will introduce the architectural concepts for incrementally growing an Internet-scale knowledge system, and describe early commercial deployments in manufacturing and healthcare.
