Semantic search would revolutionize the web once again, I would say, feeding information to us in a method more predictable and more accurate than those in use now. Education and research would benefit greatly, such a tool could effectively change the way we think about information. A word of warning for this technology though, would be an increasing over-reliance on it, leaving the average human pampered and waiting to be fed with information. Apathy could result, with a decrease in overall productivity possibly.
With this new technology, I would think that development of ideas and theories would become easier. Time can be spent not looking for the sources, articles and papers that others have written, but can be spent formulating your own ideas.
