The future is always a mystery, but there is a strong possibility that in the web pages of the next generation of the Internet, the use of artificial intelligence, Blockchain technology, and cloud computing will be common. However, Web 3.0, as it is called, the next evolution of the Internet, is intended to provide a better user experience, largely based on the concept of the semantic web.
The semantic web is a new concept on the Internet associated with how online information is structured based on its contextual meaning and made understandable by computers. Thus, the Web will cease to be a database of documents and links and will become an interconnected database, where operations involving information processing allow for a higher level of complexity or produce more relevant results.
But this transition to the next level is not immediate. A semantic structure of the Web 2.0 (the current Web) requires better information technology, artificial intelligence technologies, and the collaboration of experts in philosophy, ontology, and linguistics, among other branches of knowledge. It also requires active and better-informed user participation.
Why is the next generation of the Internet called Web 3.0?
Web 3.0 means the next version of the current Web or Web 2.0, which is itself an evolution of the original Web or Web 1.0. Web 1.0 was characterized by reading documents with little or no user interaction.
On the other hand, in the Web 2.0 we live in today, also known as the social web, user participation predominates, not only through social media posts but also by using collaborative work platforms or communication tools, among other online activities.
