Connecting The Web With Language – Ask and Get

ubiquity_sideIt Doesn’t Have to be This Way; whatever it is. Mozilla has introduced Ubiquity for firefox, which is an experiment in connecting the Web with language and straight commands. You tell it to do what you want and it does it for you straight away. Call it Web AI(Artificial Intelligence). Some features of Ubiquity are;

  • Control the web browser with language-based instructions. (With search, users type what they want to find. With Ubiquity, they type what they want to do.)
  • Enable on-demand, user-generated mashups with existing open Web APIs. (In other words, allowing everyone (not just Web developers) to remix the Web so it fits their needs, no matter what page they are on, or what they are doing.)
  • Use Trust networks and social constructs to balance security with ease of extensibility.
  • Extend the browser functionality easily.

“Most people do not have an easy way to manage the vast resources of the Web to simplify their task at hand. For the most part they are left trundling between web sites, performing common tasks resulting in frustration and wasted time”. Try Ubiquity.
