People use computers to solve different types of problems, such as calculating taxes and analyzing human speech patterns. Some problems, such as finding efficient travel routes, are difficult to solve even with the fastest computers. Many organizations use a collection, or grid, of computers to handle computationally intensive problems, such as protein folding, economic forecasting, and seismic analysis.
Cloud computing is a technique of providing hardware or software to users over the Internet. As the computational power of the Web increases, many people believe that the next generation of Web applications, commonly called Web 3.0, will understand context and meaning and will respond to a query like "Find me a good place to eat" by considering your preferences and location.
