Whatever we call the next generation of the Web, what will come after it?
Theories range from conservative predictions to guesses that sound more like science fiction films.
The Web will build on developments in distributed computing and lead to true artificial intelligence.
In distributed computing, several computers tackle a large processing job. Each computer handles a small part of the overall task. Some people believe the Web will be able to think by distributing the workload across thousands of computers and referencing deep ontologies. The Web will become a giant brain capable of analyzing data and extrapolating new ideas based off of that information.
