Future Trade: Web 5.0
What will the internet look like in the year 2030? It could well have a brain of its own.

Want to know where all your money went last night? Just drag your bank statement onto your photo album and get a list of every drink you bought at the bar.
Taken a step further, the semantic web could even read your mind. Imagine searching for the Finnish word for “cat” just by thinking about it and having a brain implant pass along the thought!
