You may have noticed yourself, the Internet is simply overflowing with insignificant content, similar services and other useless information. How to control it, and most importantly, how to find what you really need? The answer to this is the WEB 3.0. The machine-services that can “read” the content of sites and determine the usefulness of information.
The first concept of the third version was expressed as early as Tim Berners-Lee, the founder of the WWW. If WEB 2.0 provided information, that the next generation should already give information security to machines, that is, various computer systems. His project is called the Semantic Web.
Simply speaking, when you write the query “I want my hair cut” Internet will immediately offer the address and phone number of the nearest barbershop, rather than dozens of sites that are simply well SEO-optimized and because of this get on the first pages of results. Information intelligent systems will offer the most relevant results specifically for you.
At first glance, it seems that search already provides the most appropriate answers, but the current situation is still far from the visions of the semantic web. Despite the development of neural networks and related technologies, the concept has encountered various technical difficulties in practice.
Definition and Concept of WEB 3.0
The very definition of WEB 3.0 was published by Netscape.com CEO Jason Calacanis in 2007. Kalakanis saw the new generation as a kind of sociocultural platform in which the usefulness of information would be determined not by machines, but by a group of professionals, a regulatory body.
There is another vision of what the future WEB 3.0 should become – the concept of decentralization.
Blockchain has become the realization of decentralization in the financial system. Most people are already very familiar with cryptocurrencies and the general principle of such systems. All financial transactions and wallet accounts are recorded in one chain, the blockchain. Changing the transaction data in this chain is problematic for the simple reason that it is stored on each participant’s computer. It turns out that there is no single center or governing body that can arbitrarily change someone’s account.
The concept of WEB 3.0 is quite blurred – there is no single concept or a specific “road map” of development. It is almost impossible to predict when the new era will come. The idea of decentralization is just beginning to take root in our lives, but whether it will become comprehensive is an open question.
