What’s Next? (Web 3.0) Web Sites Become Web Services “ Unstructured information will give way to structured information - paving the road to more intelligent computing.” ( Alex Iskold, ReadWriteWeb, Mar 07 ) Examples: Amazon E-Commerce API, del.icio.us API, Twitter API, Dapper, Yahoo! Pipes (scraping technologies) Pages not center of Web now, Data & Services are 90% of Twitter activity happens through its API Intelligent Web = data is getting smarter ( ref: Nova Spivack, Twine, Oct 07 ) Semantic Web Filters / recommendations Personalization Beyond PC - mobile, IPTV, physical world integration

Web Sites Become Web Services

“ Unstructured information will give way to structured information - paving the road to more intelligent computing.” ( Alex Iskold, ReadWriteWeb, Mar 07 )

Examples: Amazon E-Commerce API, del.icio.us API, Twitter API, Dapper, Yahoo! Pipes (scraping technologies)

Pages not center of Web now, Data & Services are

90% of Twitter activity happens through its API

Intelligent Web = data is getting smarter ( ref: Nova Spivack, Twine, Oct 07 )

Semantic Web

Filters / recommendations

Personalization

Beyond PC - mobile, IPTV, physical world integration

Semantic Web Machines talking to machines Making the Web more 'intelligent’ Tim Berners-Lee: computers "analyzing all the data on the Web‚ the content, links, and transactions between people and computers.” Bottom Up = annotate, metadata, RDF! Top Down = Simple Image credit: dullhunk Top-down: Leverage existing web information Apply specific, vertical semantic knowledge Deliver the results as a consumer-centric web app

Machines talking to machines

Making the Web more 'intelligent’

Tim Berners-Lee: computers "analyzing all the data on the Web‚ the content, links, and transactions between people and computers.”

Bottom Up = annotate, metadata, RDF!

Top Down = Simple

Top-down:

Leverage existing web information

Apply specific, vertical semantic knowledge

Deliver the results as a consumer-centric web app

Semantic Apps What is a Semantic App? - Not necessarily W3C Semantic Web An app that determines the meaning of text and other data, and then creates connections for users Data portability and connectibility are keys (ref: Nova Spivack) Example: Calais Reuters, the international business and financial news giant, launched an API called Open Calais in Feb 08. The API does a semantic markup on unstructured HTML documents - recognizing people, places, companies, and events. Ref: Reuters Wants The World To Be Tagged ; Alex Iskold, ReadWriteWeb, Feb 08

Recommendation Engines Given a set of ratings for a particular user, along with those of the whole user base, come up with new items that this user will like Personalization is driving it 4 Approaches: Personalized recommendation - recommend things based on the individual's past behavior Social recommendation - recommend things based on the past behavior of similar users Item recommendation - recommend things based on the item itself A combination of the three approaches above Ref: Rethinking Recommendation Engines,Alex Iskold, ReadWriteWeb, Feb 08

Given a set of ratings for a particular user, along with those of the whole user base, come up with new items that this user will like

Personalization is driving it

4 Approaches:

Personalized recommendation - recommend things based on the individual's past behavior

Social recommendation - recommend things based on the past behavior of similar users

Item recommendation - recommend things based on the item itself
