World Wide Web is a rapidly evolving technology and arguably the greatest technological success in the history. From the start, dated back in the 1990, when web was just a collection of
html documents it gathered a lot of attention from wide variety of people and continually introduced new and newer features. Gradually most of its contents turned into web application rather than being simple web pages and now is regarded as a great information source, communication media and the social network. Even so, it has been kept dumb since its birth and thus turned into a clutter of valuable resources where users often fail to find desired content and give up by blaming the whole internet system.
The fate of web would have been considered very dreadful if the notion of intelligent web did not exist. Web will perform much better if the concept of semantic web is implemented in the upcoming version of web, Web 3.0, which will be an intelligent one. The definition of Web 3.0 is somewhat disputed but everyone agree that, it would be a combination of Web 2.0 and Semantic Web on top of linked data.
Although, web is evolving from one version to another and increase own version number quite quietly, current web documents will certainly not fit into semantic web without modifications.
A great challenge of emerging Web 3.0 is to convert the existing documents into semantic web compatible ones.
