The Semantic Web

Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the world wide web, is working on a new project, the Semantic Web, at the World Wide Web Consortium, based at MIT.

The idea is to create a system allowing computers to understand the data on websites, making the data reusable as chosen by the systems themselves based on the meaning. To work, people would have to code their all websites and data using the standard. It may be far-fetched and a long way off, and people may never be willing to do this, but it is an interesting idea.
