Computer technology has been growing rapidly for years and this sharp upward increase has also affected the Internet and WWW (World Wide Web). We transitioned from the strictly informational Web 1.0 to the more interactive Web 2.0. Now, we are set to transition into the 3rd generation of the web, called Web 3.0. Point to be noted that Web 3.0 is a next-gen web technology that focuses heavily on AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning). It contains websites and online services that primarily employ AI to interpret Semantic Web (a type of web that hosts machine-friendly data) and produce output for the user. Smart speakers, virtual assistants, and network-connected home appliances are some examples of Web 3.0 implementations.
This new 3rd generation Web 3.0 promises a more efficient, intelligent, accurate, and connected online experience for everyone. However, it will take some more time before we fully switch to Web 3.0. It is noteworthy that Web 3.0 and Web 2.0 are different from each other in the way they generate data for users. Although our current web relies on users’ input and collaboration to determine the right way to function, the next-gen web would let AI operate on loads of data to determine the best way to function. Breaking it down, certain online services right now depend on user feedback to tailor how they function. But they will let AI analyze the collected data and choose what’s best in the coming years. It would allow websites to spontaneously figure out and provide targeted information.
Moreover, the AI (artificial intelligence) observes user decisions directly influence how the internet behaves. This level of dependency also poses the risk of some users deliberately influencing the web to show incorrect results. AI will overcome this by separating simple user input from bogus user input using sophisticated techniques. Ubiquitous Computing is a concept of computing on any device, from anywhere, and in any format. This is relevant to the Internet of Things (IoT) (a term for the devices that communicate via a common network). The noticeable presence of IoT devices includes smart TVs and smart bulbs (an early infrastructure for Web 3.0). The Semantic Web is the name for a web where the online data is readable for machines. This format of web data would allow machine learning to prosper and thus make AI function to its fullest.
