Using Scenario Analysis to Predict the Future of the Semantic Web

The Semantic Web is a set of technologies that will change the Internet and Web as we know them. Scenario analysis is an established method for strategic planning in uncertain situations. In this session, we'll develop four distinct scenarios for the future of the Semantic Web. We'll apply proven methods and identify the developments and milestones that will tell us which of our scenarios are most likely to come to pass. From these scenarios we'll predict the implications of the Semantic Web for news media, social networking, location-based services, search and telecommunications. This session will be a must-attend for anyone who is interested in the Semantic Web or who represents an industry likely to be disrupted by this emerging technology.
