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.

To support demand from smaller, made-to-measure companies whose businesses have relied on the traditional way of measuring customers in person, 3DLook has developed a Body Data Platform that maps body data to product data, transactional data, and product return data to deliver analytics related to measurement, shape, 3D model accuracy, and fit, as well as customer profile insights through a dynamic dashboard.

Customers take two photos while fully clothed, and a computer vision algorithm then detects the human body and renders 3D models and body profiles. The algorithm measures the 3D models to compute 65 ISO-compliant measurements. By using 3DLook’s platform, customers can easily understand how the garment will fit on their individual body shape.

“For companies to truly offer their customers the best quality products, they need to ensure that their clothes fit perfectly,” says Ketty Pillet, VP of marketing at Gerber Technology.

While Whitney Cathcart, chief strategy officer and co-founder of 3DLook, adds: “By integrating our widget into Gerber’s ‘Made For You By You’ flow we are enabling a simple way to digitise measurement capture and automate the workflow process.

“We see this partnership as the first step towards providing brands, manufacturers, and retailers with the digital tools needed to support a full end-to-end customisation platform which meets the needs of customers increasingly focused on products personalised to their fit and preference and who also care about supporting more sustainable supply chains and business models.”

For many consumers, fit is a deciding factor in choosing which brands to buy from. The newly-added 3DLook integration means visitors to the virtual Gerber Innovation Center can access Gerber’s YOU website from anywhere in the world to customise garments to their individual fit preferences and measurements.

These virtually customised garments can then be digitally brought to life – incorporating the customer’s preferences – through Gerber’s fully-connected microfactory, giving them a fully-realised, production-ready garment.
