Dubbed the Internet of Tomorrow, Web 3.0 is a novelty that will change our lives by completely reshaping the Net.
Web 3.0 represents many things: a web update, a metatechnology for enterprise software, a social movement for open data, and a new generation of artificial intelligence. Yes, but in practice?
Hackers regularly target large companies, resulting in millions of consumer data being exposed. A McKinsey study last year shows that several sectors have a confidence rate of less than 50%.
Web 3.0 could solve several privacy problems, because it presents the Internet on blockchain technology. It makes it more "elusive". Storing any data on the blockchain makes that data decentralized, thus protecting it from breaches.
Returning ownership of your data to consumers could potentially disrupt the tech industry. It is no small consequence that the tech giants lose access to the data that initially gave them the push. It is no coincidence that the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX Elon Musk and the co-founder of Twitter Jack Dorsey are opposed to this new technology.
The four knights of Web 3.0
The highly advanced technologies that will contribute to the evolution of the Internet in addition to the blockchain are four: virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI) e machine learning (ML).
In a recent interview, Musk admitted that he may simply be "too old" to understand these new Web 3.0 technologies. The tycoon asks: "Am I like one of those who dismissed the internet in 1995 as a passing fad?". Maybe.
Musk focuses his criticism of the metaverse on the lack of compelling use cases and an unsatisfactory user experience. “Of course you can put a TV on your nose,” he says. “I'm not sure everyone sticks a fucking screen in their face all day and never takes it off. I can't find it compelling ”.
What do you think of it? How many and which "transformative" effects of Web 3.0 will make the most of the crowd and shape our future?
