Talk by Vint Cerf – Father of Internet
Vint Cerf recently gave a talk in Bangalore as a part of Google Talk series. Here is a small video (6mins) of that talk. For people who don’t know who is Vint Cerf
Vint Cerf(June 23, 1943) is an American computer scientist who is commonly referred to as one of the “founding fathers of the Internet” for his key technical and managerial role, together with Bob Kahn, in the creation of the Internet and the TCP/IP protocols which it uses.
He was also a co-founder (in 1992) of the Internet Society (ISOC), which is intended to both promote the views of ordinary users of the Internet, and also serve as an umbrella body for the technical groups developing the Internet (such as the Internet Engineering Task Force). He served as the first president of the Internet Society from 1992-1995, served on the board of trustees through the end of 2001, and served as chairman of the board from 1998 to 1999.
Audience were allowed to ask questions to Vint. The questions went through the filtering process. But mine went through the process. Will there be web 3.0? was my question.
Vint : Web 2.0 is a marketing term.It means API and Sharing. He belives that sharing and api will continue to grow. And there could be different ways of collabrations which might happen on the web in future. There might be next level but he surely does not like calling it web3.0
In the part of video present below he talks about the area’s of computer science where the research still needs to be done.
