Abstract:


    Overview

    While the World Wide Web could become the nerve center for a social super-organism, it remains frustratingly rudimentary. Documents lack uniformity and integration; linking is unintelligent and unstable; interaction is limited, controlled by authors and browsers. However, things are changing. Advances in artificial intelligence could be applied to the WWW, transforming it to a globally distributed, massively parallel, wetware-oriented universe. Panelists from all areas of web development discuss this and other possibilities for the future of the web.
