In the 5th edition of the AI Waves webinar an expert panel turned their focus to the rise of Web 3.0 and discussed its potential impact across the business world. 

What is Web 3.0?

Web 3.0 is the third generation of the evolution of web technologies, following Web 1.0 and Web 2.0. Web 3.0 is expected to be more open, connected and intelligent than its predecessors and a defining feature of Web 3.0 will be decentralisation. The ability to decentralise will essentially allow different technologies and communities to be more self-governing and as a result, Web 3.0 can be expected to be more open, connected and intelligent than its predecessors.
