Today I had a discussion with David about what lies ahead in the Web 2.0 space is it going to be Web 3.0?
Every day we hear about the new era of recruitment and what will be the future of recruitment. I feel that Web 3.0 will be characterized and fueled by the successful fusion of artificial intelligence and the web. Artificial Intelligence (AI) The technologies considered pivotal in the Semantic Web are indeed considered by many to have their underpinnings in artificial intelligence. But, most of the Semantic Web projects I've seen are focused squarely on the creation of, and communication between, intelligent agents that do the natural language and topical matching work in a transparent manner, behind the scenes, without requiring human intervention.
As sure as change is change, the latest creation, I truly believe that Web 3.0, is just around the corner, and galloping your way fast. The opportunity has never been better to influence it now before it influences you.
I was reading a very interesting article by Mark Hoderson speaking about the future of recruitment. Here is something for you to really think about.
In geek-speak, Web 2.0 was actually defined as a 'Software as a Service' phase (SaaS) of the internet, where applications (such as Facebook and social networking sites) hosted by other parties were provided to customers via their web browser.
Web 3.0 is the next stage on from this or Platform as a Service (PaaS) - where organisations have greater scope to develop entire applications tailor-made to meet their needs - again accessing via the cloud without the need to install and manage software themselves.
It is Natural that not all organisations will be comfortable with this, but just as Web 2.0 was driven by the public pull of social networking sites, perhaps Web 3.0 will be pulled along by organisations looking to deliver a greater flexibility in the provision of departmental, especially in the field of Recruitment.
