We cover everything that relates to the Internet of Things. If it's connected, we want to hear about it. We are fascinated by the impending "Machine Economy", where machines will become smarter, more intelligent, and eventually fully autonomous. The Internet is transforming from a Social Web to a Machine Web, that we like to call Web 3.0 and it is defined by the convergence of three primary components; IoT, AI & DLT.
We promote conferences, workshops, hardware hackathons, and meetups that relate to IoT, AI, and DLT (Blockchain, DAGs, Hashgraph, Hyperledger, and Cryptocurrency). We think the impending Machine Economy, powered by a global network of autonomous machines, will transform the way we live and work - for the better.
A perfect storm of innovation is finally making the Machine Economy aka "Web 3.0" a reality. Our focus is data decentralisation and machine automation.

Of late, the crypto market has been plunging and tumbling deeper with time. It is now a high time that crypto enthusiasts take a step back and focus more on the evolving blockchain technology and its potential. In the last 10 plus years, blockchain technology has been attempting to solve challenges inherent in the finance industry. While it hasn’t managed to solve all the challenges, there are some positive developments considering Peer-to-Peer (P2P) transactions that have successfully eliminated third parties and enhanced the speed of financial transactions.

Here at WEB3-IOT our aim is to track the inevitable convergence between the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT) such as blockchain. One of the most heated debates in the DLT space right now is - which blockchain will form the infrastructure for the coming wave of Decentralised Applications (Dapps) that will run on Web 3.0? Anthony Broderick takes a deep dive into how Bitcoin and Ethereum' blockchain platforms stack up against EOS.
Montford's Rule is a new one for our times… “Every time there is a step change in technology it’s heralded as a revolution - now it's real,” he alleges. And Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the key. We are now no longer just looking at the loss of labour to technology that the evanescence of tasks that have for centuries required a high degree of intellect and evaluation. There’s a sense of urgency highlighted by the publication last month of arguably the U.K.'s most focused new industrial strategy to be announced in the past two and a half decades.
ICOs are funding the creation of a new decentralised web (PART I) Once upon a time there was a substance called ether, also known as quintessence, that delighted and baffled medieval scientists for centuries. They postulated that it was a medium used by light to travel through the vacuum of space. It was also thought to be responsible for all kinds of other complex scientific phenomena. At the end of the 19th century, the scientific community collectively disavowed the notion, and concluded that it never existed. Ironic then that ether should, well, disappear into the ether.
After Money: What Happens Next? As technology becomes ever more fundamental to citizens, societies and economies, Simon Montford, the founder of WEB3//IOT visited the After Money money symposium looking at issues from identity and privacy to decentralisation, autonomy and democracy itself.
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), also known as a drone, is an airborne vehicle controlled remotely by a human or autonomously. Although regarded by many as futuristic, drones are very much a reality. Like any technology, drones can be used to help or hinder humanity.
No one really knows how the technology will develop but one thing is for sure, they are here to stay. Potential applications for long range solar-powered drones include provision of ubiquitous Internet access to the entire world, delivery of products to remote locations and ecological reconnaissance to monitor, and hopefully prevent, ecological damage.
The rapid growth in demand for connected devices that can be embedded within clothing, or worn as head-mounted devices, or accessories continues unabated. Within the near future wearables will become embeddables; attached to the skin or implanted within the human body. In order to qualify as an IoT device, it must incorporate a microprocessor that connects to the Internet directly or wirelessly via a second device such as a smartphone.
One of the first consumer fitness wearables to go mainstream was Nike's Fuelband. Since then wearable tech has become ubiquitous.
Over the next few years, every major industrial vertical within the developed world will become fully connected, as will every consumer device; from fridges, and thermostats to TVs and microwave ovens. Thanks to cloud-based neural networks accessible via ubiquitous low-latency, high-bandwidth connectivity, machines will become smarter, more intelligent, and eventually fully autonomous. We call this "IoT 2.0", and it will be made up of devices that contain energy-efficient neural processing units that will enable devices to operate autonomously without needing to be tethered to the cloud. They will transact using crypto currency and will run on a decentralised, distributed protocols instead of TCP/IP).
