Given the interest generated recently due to Elon Musk’s and Jack Dorsey’s tweets on Web 3.0. Here are few topics, thoughts, thought experiments and ideas.
- Brief introduction and summary
Web 1.0 – Static content – HTML, URI, URL, HTTP. Access/Read content from anywhere with a browser.
Web 2.0 – Interactive – Apps – Forms, AJAX, Search, Secure access, reports – WSDL, SOAP, REST, GraphQL, TLS.
Web 3.0 – Decentralized, Semantic, No trust/permissions needed – IPFS, Blockchain.
- Semantic Web – fully connected WWW beyond hyperlinks.
Current hyperlinks may break, redirect, subvert (by updated pages). No versioning feasible. Search engines fill this gap only slightly using page ranking and other heuristics/proxies for intention and authenticity
blockchain based non-repudiation with versioning will make a link immutable
- Knowledge Graphs
Connected data/information/insights/knowledge/wisdom across various dimensions, domains and any observable phenomena.
- Front end
GraphQL (Will need to be further refined) – for API.
SparQL – SQL for graphs
RDF , TripleStore
- Architectural tools and frameworks
Cloud/IoT to Intelligent connected edge.
Blogs/Content can be implemented as kgraph.
Search engines / Social Media / Rental Apps to SparQL Apps. Examples include
> find a movie theater near Lalbagh
> Get Posts made by my friends on Politics
> Find a 2 BHK for rent for 2 days in Guruvayur
