The semantic web is intended to make data easier to exchange and use between different computers. It is supposed to help unstructured data to be better structured by using additional information. For example, the German word “Zug” in a web document can be a transportation means or a city. The semantic web should assist in putting the data into the right context. While it is easy for humans to recognize the context in a natural way, machines have to learn this continuously and thus expand their knowledge base through Web 3.0. With semantic data, Web 3.0 will significantly improve data communication, ultimately taking the user experience to a new level.
One buzzword you hear in connection with 3D graphics is the metaverse, like the futuristic gaming applications Decentraland. But it is not only the gaming world that will be affected, but also e-commerce, the pharmaceutical industry, the real estate industry or the automotive industry, to name just a few other examples. Thanks to improved technology and increased computing power, yoga classes on the summit of Mount Everest in a 3D environment could be possible in the near future by utilizing Web 3.0.
Web 3.0 can read and decode the meaning and emotions of data by applying artificial intelligence. Web 2.0 already offers some similar possibilities, but humans have their fingers in the pie which is not always used in a positive way. For example, one can imagine that there are companies that pay to receive masses of positive reviews for their services or products, or give masses of bad reviews to their competitors, thus distorting the true picture. Artifcial intelligence is supposed to detect such approaches on the Web 3.0 and reflect more honest reviews, thus guaranteeing a better customer experience.
According to the Cambridge Dictionary “ubiquitous” means “seeming to be everywhere”. Ubiquitous computing aims to provide people with a seamlessly connected computing environment in which they live, work and play. It is a world where people are surrounded by computing devices and computing infrastructure that can interact with each other and smoothly support us in our daily lives. Simple examples could be using your cell phone to give a presentation via a wireless projector while simultaneously using smart watch to control the presentation.
The Web 3.0 Difference
We rely on various platforms like Google or Facebook to communicate, collect data, watch movies, shop, order food, and more. All these platforms’ own users’ data, but once Web 3.0 is up and running, all services will run on blockchain, and these organizations will no longer have ownership of users’ data.
