Web 3.0 is the evolution of older-generation web tools + advancement tools like AI and Blockchain where user interaction involves high internet usage. Internet 3.0 is an upgrade to its precursors: web 1.0 and 2.0.
1. Web 1.0 (1989-2005)
Also known as the static Web, was the first and most reliable Internet of the 1990s. It offered little or no user interaction.
Web 1.0 didn’t have any algorithms to sift internet pages which was not a user-friendly thing when comes to finding relevant information.
Directories were the only source of information in those days.
The most intelligent internet will be web 3.0. It is the next stage of web evolution empowered with AI systems. As said by Tim Berners- Lee, inventor of the word wide web, the Semantic Web is meant to “automatically” interface with systems, people, and home devices.
Content Creation and decisions will be involving both machines and humans. This will result in the intelligent creation and sharing of highly-tailored content to every internet consumer.
Let’s understand the evolution of the Web. Following are the key features
Meaning present everywhere at the same time. Although web 2.0 is already omnipresent. For example, Facebook, Instagram, etc are already present and accessible to everyone at the same time.
To advance it, IoT technology will bring forth a plethora of new types of smart devices other than computers and smartphones.
The study of the relationship between words. Web 3.0 will enable analyze loads of data from the Web, which includes all types of searches from content to transactions.
These two sentences have different syntax but almost the same semantics.
Web 3.0 would enable machines to decode meanings and emotions by applying semantics.
This will offer a better user experience.
Since Web 3.0 machines can read and decode the meaning and emotions conveyed by a set of data, it brings machine intelligence into a role.
Web 2.0 presents similar capabilities but it is mainly human-based which gives room for corruption such as biased product reviews, faked ratings, etc.
For example, online review platforms like Angie’s List provide a platform for consumers to review any product or service. But some companies gather a group of people to do this task for them resulting in fake reviews. To distinguish between fake and reliable reviews, the Internet needs the power of A.I
Web 3.0 aims to blur the line between the physical and the digital by bringing a revolution in graphics technology and focusing on three-dimensional (3D) virtual worlds.
3D graphics will bring futuristic gaming applications but also in other sectors like real estate, health, e-commerce, and many more.
The most significant aspect of Web 3.0 is that it improves security, trust, and privacy. Many people refer to Web 3.0 as the “decentralized web,” because it will rely heavily on decentralized protocols. The world is eagerly waiting to experience Web 3.0
