Abstract
Information organization and search on the {W}eb is gaining structure and context awareness and more semantic flavor, for example, in the forms of faceted search, vertical search, entity search, and {D}eep-{W}eb search. I envision another big leap forward by automatically harvesting and organizing knowledge from the {W}eb, represented in terms of explicit entities and relations as well as ontological concepts. This will be made possible by the confluence of three strong trends: 1) rich {S}emantic-{W}eb-style knowledge repositories like ontologies and taxonomies, 2) large-scale information extraction from high-quality text sources such as {W}ikipedia, and 3) social tagging in the spirit of {W}eb 2.0. I refer to the three directions as {S}emantic {W}eb, {S}tatistical {W}eb, and {S}ocial {W}eb (at the risk of some oversimplification), and I briefly characterize each of them.
