Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) continue to advance on what seems like a daily basis. But has the web kept up with these technological advances? We have smart phones, why not smart web? CIO brought this information to us in their article, “Why hasn’t artificial intelligence made the Internet smarter?”
The commercial Internet has now been around for twenty-some years and the for the most part, it hasn’t changed much since the early AOL and CompuServe days.
The Internet started out as a research tool between government, universities and corporations. With the advent of hyperlinks, the Internet has been transformed into a commercial vehicle for the sale of good and services. The process of research has become cumbersome due to the constant consumerism.
We expect a lot out of AI and while it may change the Internet someday, it isn’t in the foreseeable future because little knowledge is captured in a form that AI machines can directly ingest.
