There are four stages outlined to define the growth of the internet. The first stage, Web 1.0 is about getting on the net. A Web 1.0 example is the standard dotcom website. In a Web 1 example a user visits the website to request information which requires human response. A Web 2.0 example is social networking where a website connects people. Web 3 is about representing meanings and valuing information for the production and use of knowledge. Such production and use of information will make the internet more relevant and useful. With products such as an Intelligent Agent, Web 4.0 will evolve more quickly and seamlessly. Web 4 is about the interoperability between connecting intelligences where both people and things reason and communicate together.
Setting the criteria for Semantic Web machine interoperability.
In order to achieve machine reasoning, the Semantic Web progression requires three levels of knowledge representation for machine interoperability: syntactical, structural, and semantic.
- The syntactical level includes Taxonomies, lists, glossaries, and various relational schemes.
- The structural level includes thesaurus, dictionaries, and models.
- The semantic level concludes reasoning interoperability by the triangulation of data using value theory mathematics through Ontology Landscapes and Axiological Psychology.
