Project: The web is a medium of accessing and sharing information in our modern society. In recent years we have had a new tendency to have version numbers for the World Wide Web. Although the definition for the term Web 3.0 is still ambiguous, the truth is that most of the technologies and paradigms that experts are talking about have been around for quite some time. We think that it is not a matter of “which” new technologies will be widely available, but “how” these technologies will be applied and integrated to give structure to the next generation of the Web. Our ultimate goal is to work together with the UC3M's Telematic Applications and Services Group (gast) on novel ways to combine new technologies to open intelligent avenues for delivering dynamic, interactive and targeted contents specific to the user in an interesting smart interface. All the interactions occurring between avatars today are kept in the virtual world and are not reflected back to real users in real-time. Therefore we will investigate ways to change the real world to reflect events that occur in the virtual world and vice versa.
