Internet’s Next Revolution: Can Web 3.0 Unlock Decentralized and Intelligent Internet?

Big tech companies have created massive ecosystems that offer the internet’s key services, making it impossible for users to break from their “walled garden” and ultimately surrender control of their data. A sharp rise in public awareness about data privacy and the value of their data has stimulated new awareness around web 3.0 networks. Web 3.0 is the third iteration of the internet, designed by token-based economics to wrest the control of user data from big tech companies and provide a user-centric internet. It creates a mesh of peer-to-peer communication and decentralized governance structures to enable individuals and organizations to tackle data privacy and censorship threats. Reasons to read: An increasing number of startups and tech players are shifting gears to create blockchain-powered decentralized ecosystems for different sector-specific applications and services. Against this backdrop, businesses need more awareness of the fast-paced fundamental restructuring of the internet. The report highlights the current state of play and the future potential of web 3.0 networks in driving decentralized and user-controlled internet. This is anticipated to unlock new possibilities for enterprises across sectors such as financial services, gaming, sports, media & entertainment, retail, and technology, among others.

  • Evolution of the internet
  • Active players in the web 3.0 ecosystem

The goal of the new Unified 3D Material (u3m) format is to create a real alignment of visual appearance between applications.

“U3m leverages a physically-based rendering (PBR) shading model,” explains Martin Semsch, managing director at Vizoo. “Therefore applications supporting PBR achieve a very similar look.”

Until now, each vendor outputs digital materials in a proprietary format or embeds it directly in their styles. U3m will streamline this process, allowing digital asset suppliers to rely on one fabric format serving their customers, regardless of which 3D applications are used.

Eventually, the companies say it will be more efficient to move fabric information between vendors and suppliers.

“We are pleased with the unique method we’ve created to easily store visual and custom physical data in one file,” adds Sharon Lim, CEO at Browzwear. “U3M is the first digital material format in the industry to combine digital components together in a consistent manner, thus allowing industry standardisation of digital material libraries.”

Vizoo’s upcoming release, xTex 181, will support reading and writing of the u3m format and 2019 will see the first integrations in 3D CAD and 3D rendering applications.
