The emergence of the Internet gave impetus to tremendous changes in society, allowing to unite many completely different and unrelated local networks and provide them with a new, neutral, common basis for interaction.
But what happened to those first dreams of the web? People began to realize that the easiest way to create value based on this neutral structure is to develop centralized services that collect information and limit its availability for the purpose of subsequent monetization.
Tim Berners-Lee said:
The web was designed to be decentralised so that everybody could participate by having their own domain and having their own webserver and this hasn’t worked out. Instead, we’ve got the situation where individual personal data has been locked up in these silos. […] The proposal is, then, to bring back the idea of a decentralised web.
To bring back power to people. We are thinking we are going to make a social revolution by just tweaking: we’re going to use web technology, but we’re going to use it in such a way that we separate the apps that you use from the data that you use.
The real idea behind the web and the Internet was to create a common neutral network in which every user could participate on an equal footing, acting out of the desire to benefit society. At the same time, this approach prevents fundamental freedoms for all users of the web, such as the ability to link to content using a URL or the ability of third-party search engines to index content. Instead, the user has to share content only within, for example, Instagram or Facebook and use only its search tools. The activities of Apple, Google, Microsoft are based on their own interests, and this is how it should be. But it also means that these companies often view the user only as a source of revenue. In this case, the user himself pays for such an attitude.
Fortunately, we are currently witnessing the formation of a new movement seeking to bring the web back to its original form - the creation of the decentralized web (Web 3.0 or the Great Web). In general, there are three main aspects that can fully rely on protection and support within the decweb: privacy, data portability and security.
cyber: Computing the knowledge of the Great Web
What is Cyber? Due to their Github page: Cyber is a knowledge consensus computer for answers and a search engine. Cyber is defined by web3 agents. It is a distributed consensus supercomputer that runs on top of IPFS. It can compute relevance for web3 data via the use of cyberlinks, that are created from IPFS hashes.
Cyber's team defined and implemented a protocol for provable communication, between consensus computers on relevance. According to the protocol agents through the cyberlinks generate the knowledge graphs. Then consensus computer using the concept of the relevance machine process the cyberlinks. Superintelligence manage the blockchain, which functions under the Tendermint consensus algorithm with a standard governance module. Like a conventional search engine, the protocol provides the necessary utility. Meanwhile, the system is extendable for numerous applications and makes it possible to design economically rational, self-owned robots, that can autonomously understand objects around them. More information about Cyber you can find in their whitepaper.
