What is Web 3.0?
Web 3.0 is the 3rd generation of Internet services for web pages and applications. It will focus on machine-based data understanding to provide a semantic and data Web. The ultimate goal of Web 3.0 is to create more innovative, connected, and open websites.
It is not implemented yet, so there is no clear definition. But, to give you an idea, the transition from the original web, from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0, took more than ten years. That said, it is expected to take as long, if not longer, to implement and reshape the web with 3.0 fully.
When did Web 3.0 Emerge?
Web 1.0, also known as the World Wide Web, appeared first. Most of us will remember those days when connecting to the Internet was very noisy. In addition, web pages were static and took forever to load.
As more people began to use the Internet, its potential began to be understood. For this reason, new infrastructures were created to promote it. In addition, the Internet became faster and allowed for heavier applications and websites, which gave rise to the era of social networks and platforms such as Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon.
Today, people from all over the world can share information and be entertained, shop, find answers to their questions and interact with each other thanks to Web 2.0.
On the other hand, Apple’s Siri and Alexa are examples of Web 3.0 since they combine artificial intelligence with voice recognition. However, this network is still developing, and there is still a long way to go.
Benefits of Web 3.0
Now that we know what Web 3.0 is, let’s see some of its benefits:
This network will give creators and users more freedom in general. Furthermore, using decentralized networks will ensure that the latter always have control over their online data. The next version of the Internet is also expect to be more reliable given its decentralized nature, which eliminates the possibility of a single point of failure.
It’s for Everyone
It does not need to be control by a single entity. For example, the most significant companies may no longer have complete control over the Internet. As a result, decentralize applications or apps cannot be censor or restricted.
The Personalization of the Internet
We will also be able to personalize our browsing experience because this type of website will be able to understand our preferences. It will also allow us to navigate more productively.
Allows Sellers to Sell Better
Sellers will better understand our purchasing needs and show us those products and services we are interest in buying with the help of artificial intelligence. In addition, it will allow us to see
Since the data will be store in distribute databases by decentralization, users will not have to worry about service interruptions or account suspensions for technical reasons.
Characteristics of Web 3.0
As we have commented in the previous point, one of the critical characteristics of web 3.0 is decentralization. Therefore, in this new version, the data will be connect in a decentralize way, unlike 2.0, which is mainly store in centralize places.
In Web 3.0, users will also be able to interact with data thanks to artificial intelligence and machine learning technology. That is, it will combine the Semantic Web concepts with AI.
On the other hand, using artificial intelligence will allow data to be provided much faster to users, and these data will be more relevant and personified. We are starting to see the use of this technology on the Internet through algorithms that are use to suggest products or videos to users base on their previous searches. However, this will be even more advanced.
Why Web 3.0 is Important for the Company
Traditional and new businesses will welcome blockchain technology and all its possibilities. Furthermore, you will see that your applications will receive blockchain updates in which everything will made public and accessible.
Web 3.0 will bring about a significant change in how the Internet works by focusing on user privacy. This problem has been discuss for a long time but has not been effectively solve.
Web 3.0 seeks to create a new classification system for web pages closely linked to the needs and characteristics of users. This way, users can enjoy a much more personalized platform by connecting to the Internet.
