Technology, especially the internet, has changed over the years. It begins with web 1.0, the read-only web. The user couldn’t give any response, people can only view what is served by the writer, and the older content couldn’t be developed or being commented by the visitors. Around 2000 to 2009, the second generation called web 2.0 appears. It is the revolution of social networks, encouraging users to participate in the content they are about to visit. Websites are becoming more interactive such as Facebook, Wikipedia, YouTube and Twitter. Then, the third one appeared between 2010 to 2019, commonly called Semantic Web. Web 3.0 intends to organize how content is searched and viewed by the user, and everything could be customized based on each user’s behavior, search history and preferences.
Now, the web 4.0 or usually called as “Active Web” and “Internet of Things” has been revealed. It is the newest revolution of the internet. Although the standard of web 4.0 is not established yet, there are so many clues about how it will evolve. The web 4.0 is an open, linked and intelligent web. It is designed to create a new symbiotic relationship between humans and machines. It will understand the natural language, both spoken and written. This improvement of technology will make a “simplification”, because web 4.0 is used more directly and transparent than web 3.0. However, web 4.0 is meant to revolutionize the daily lives of humans. How? Web 4.0 will give users unique and interconnected social and personal lives. In web 4.0, robots may know what you are feeling right know and understand what you want afterwards.
How about the implementation? How does it work? Let’s talk about the example of web 4.0 being used. In the future, an application or your virtual assistant will know your habits and your tastes. It will book things such as movie tickets on its own and with your name, and it will only require a confirmation from you in order to make the reservation. It will work as a virtual assistant with initiatives, feelings, and knowledge built in it. They will know your taste and interest even before you declare it. In simple words, not only your to become your virtual assistant, but machines would be cleverer on reading the contents of the web and react in the form of executing and deciding what to execute first, to load the websites fast with superior quality and performance and build more commanding interfaces than ever. Web 4.0 will definitely be parallel to the human brain and shows a massive web of highly intelligent interactions.
Now, when will we be able to witness web 4.0? Sooner or later, this helpful technology will be perfect and delivered to the users. We should accept that for now, because there is no exact description of how this symbiotic web would become. Although there is no exact idea about web 4.0 and its technologies, but it is obvious that the web is moving towards artificial intelligence and it aims to become an intelligent web.
