What is Web 3.0?
Simply put, Web 3.0 doesn’t really have a structural definition. There are things about Web 3.0 and there are innovations which can be explained and so forth, but there is no definitive explanation for the technology that is regarded as Web 3.0. However, it is important to try and establish something in the form of a definition in order to help get the ball rolling as we delve into the subject itself and try to understand why this subject is an important discuss.
In simple terms, Web 3.0 is the third-generation web. With Web 1.0, we had a web structure that involved passive participation from users. Website users in that generation were passive about consulting web pages and conspicuously stayed away from the process of creating content for the web. In Web 2.0, users began to participate in the creation of content on the web and started to interact with sites and with each other through social media networks and other web-based platforms. With Web 3.0, the modalities are not very clearly defined, but it is basically a major improvement on the previous generations of the web. With newer innovations and technological practices being conceived and introduced, the Web in its third-generation has become a digital world of its own, where people can interact with each other and with the different sites in a more advanced environment.
Let us consider some of the benefits of major features of Web 3.0 in order to properly understand the context and importance of the third-generation web.
The Introduction of a More Semantic Web
This new generation of the web offers the opportunity to create, share and connect content across the web through the use of the semantic web – which is the ability to understand the content and context of language. The ability of the web to understand language better makes it easier for content to be optimized and shared across the internet and this is a major improvement to the existence of the web.
The Dawn of Artificial Intelligence
Apart from the fact that computers can now understand the content and context of human language and use that understanding to generate search results, artificial intelligence is making it easier for computers and the web, generally, to think and understand information like humans, fastening the process of producing relevant results on the search engines, and on the web generally.
A More Ubiquitous Web
With the new generation of the Web, content is now accessible on multiple applications. Now, every device from a mobile phone, to the voice-command assistant in your home, is connected to the web and the services of the web can now be used by all, at all times.
Better Connectivity for User Experience
Due to the introduction of a more semantic web, information is now more connected than before through semantic metadata and, due to this, user experience has evolved to a whole different level of connectivity which leverages on all information available to users on the web. This user experience has helped make work better.
