The Web is mainly processed by humans. The role of the machines is just to transmit and display the contents of the documents, barely being able to do something else. Nowadays there are lots of initiatives trying to change this situation; many of them are related to fields like the Semantic Web or Web Intelligence. This paper describes a new proposal towards Web Intelligence: the Cooperative Web, which would allow us to extract semantics from the Web in an automatic way, without the need of ontological artifacts, with language independence and, besides of this, allowing the usage of browsing experience from individual users to serve the whole community of users.
