What is Web 3?

Web 3 is the next generation of the Internet powered by websites and applications that can process information in an autonomous and smart way using state-of-the-art analysis technologies such as Machine Learning and Big Data. 

According to Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web, Web 3's ambition is to provide an even more accessible and intelligent World Wide Web. For Web 3 to achieve its goals, digital data will be stored and interconnected in a decentralized setting. This is a very big step towards democratizing the web and reducing dependency on physical storage structures such as servers and data centers. 

This new standard will allow Internet users to interact directly with the content offered by websites and applications. According to Tim Berners-Lee, this should improve content personalization to fit each Internet user.

What are the main characteristics of Web 3?

Among the characteristics of Web 3 are:

#1 Omnipresence

Of course, since Web 2, the Internet is everywhere. But Web 3 will push the limits even further. For example, new categories of connected objects will emerge, including cars and household appliances. We will also see the growth of the IoT (Internet of Things), with a deeper connection between our physical and digital assets.

#2 Artificial Intelligence

Web 2 is already relatively "smart", since it features search engines with advanced algorithms, voice assistants, etc. However, it remains human-centric, which makes it vulnerable to some fraudulent behaviors like fake reviews. On platforms like Google My Business for example, businesses can easily hire people to write fake positive reviews for commercial purposes.

Web 3 will help prevent these behaviors through powerful AI algorithms. As a result, you will be provided with more authentic and reliable information.

Web 3 proves how dynamic the world of new technologies can be. If you want to succeed in this field, you need to keep up with the latest developments. At the American Business School of Paris, we offer top training programs that are in line with the latest innovations in technology.
