The Future of Web Search

What good are 6 or 60 billion Web documents if you can't find the best ones for your particular need? According to Tim Berners-Lee, the man who created the Web, getting better links isn't enough, no matter how much Google improves. Proponents of the Semantic Web are working on technologies that can interpret Web pages and even negotiate with them on a user's behalf. For that, the Web itself would have to change, not just the search engines. Two key technologies, XML and SOAP, are already in place. The changes to information-gathering could be profound for Internet shopping, B2B commerce, and even corporate collaboration and project development. In this session, we'll hear from the organizations developing the next generation of Web searching.
