Recently, there have been many cases of solutions (software & hardware) that follow a similar pattern. The following map organizes a selection of these recent solutions (such as Siri, Watson, Project Glass, Kinect) and aims to uncover the connection between them and help in imagining new solutions along the same lines. The common pattern that can be seen among the majority of the solutions which appear in the map is their unstructured input which is turned algorithmically into a 'semantic model' that enables different kinds of processing, visualization and realization - or in short 'semantic solutions'.
One can argue that all human-made software is basically semantic but I think that these recent solutions take this characteristic to a whole new level. Even though they seem unrelated the semantic pattern as was described earlier unifies them.The callouts in this map are marked in green - existing solutions, yellow - solutions not yet widely available and red - a selection of my own ideas for the future (without doing a thorough research on their originality). Many of the callouts link to the solutions' websites (the red arrows). Some exceptions to the pattern are marked with star(s). A special placeholder callout in the map asks: what is your favorite semantic IDE feature?.
