The Internet as we know it is transitioning from a centralised network that primarily connects humans (Web 2.0), to a decentralised network that primarily connects autonomous machines (Web 3.0). Tomorrow's Internet will not only be more machine-centric, but (hopefully) more decentralised, democratic, ethical, and efficient. The three primary ingredients that are making this a reality are IoT for machine connectivity, AI for machine automation, and DLT (blockchain) for distributed machine interaction.

Today’s web is pretty much controlled by an oligopoly of tech giants that I will refer to as “GAFAM”. They have grown incredibly rich by hoovering up personal data belonging to billions of people and using it to develop incredibly addictive products. This practice is, in most cases, perfectly legal as it is done with the consent of their users.
