According to research, it is stated that people between the ages of 18-29 are the age group that uses social media the most in the world. One-on-one studies show that the average daily time people spend on social media is 2.5 hours. In a world where people are exposed to images and content suggested by social media companies for 2.5 hours every day, it has been a matter of great curiosity how artificial intelligence affects human behavior.
Journalist-Author Serdar Kuzuloğlu, speaking to Bloomberg HT, evaluated the future of the internet, the development of Web 3.0 and its security vulnerabilities.
Considering the history of the Web, Kuzuloğlu summarized the differences in the middle of Web 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, and stated that Web 1.0 was the first primitive form that came into our lives by being commercialized in the 90s. Saying that the Web diversified and the number of users increased in the Web 2.0 phase, Kuzuloğlu said that the images people take now underHe noted that they interacted by writing comments.
“We will see a more commercial but more individual-oriented internet with Web 3.0”
Kuzuloğlu summarized the Web 3.0 phase with the following words: “Web 3.0 represents the internet established by networks such as blockchain and decentralized or more independent from each other. That is to say, in Web 3.0, everyone can take part in a profile, can do much more than they have done before, but this is a more commercial but more individual-oriented internet, where there are more money works than ever before, which can be transferred to digital, where everything can be sold and bought. We’ll see.”
“We are approaching a period where everyone is a commodity”
Kuzuloğlu, who said that a very big economy was turning on Web 3.0 and internet technology, said that the world’s most powerful companies and business people focused on the technology department. Kuzuloğlu, for example, said that even companies in the steel, automotive and defense sectors focus on being a technology branch.
Indicating that we are approaching a period in which “everyone is a commercial commodity”, Kuzuloğlu said, “All new technologies come with the promise of eliminating intermediaries. Web 3.0 will make all the promises available to people in capsule form.” said.
“The turnover of the tradesmen on the road that is not preferred by a navigation algorithm is decreasing”
Referring to the reliability and psychosocial dimension of analyzing personal data with artificial intelligence, Kuzuloğlu said that information is the raw material of society and that people’s dealings with information cause them to feel controlled. Kuzuloğlu continued his words as follows:
“We live in the world of algorithms today, whether we realize it or not. Today, when we apply for a loan to the bank to buy a house, these algorithms determine whether we can get the loan. Or, on the way to work, they determine which road we will use and what time we will be there. Since we go unconditionally on the roads they set, the turnover of the tradesmen on the roads they do not prefer decreases. The output of a navigation application’s algorithm can trigger a decrease in the turnover of a bakery or gas station on a street. So we are already willingly or unwillingly involved with algorithms, and there is no turning back.”
Kuzuloğlu, in his evaluation of the blockchain, one of the most valuable features of Web 3.0, said that the most valuable feature of the blockchain is that it is technically impossible to delete it. “Web 3.0’s promise is an internet that never forgets. We are speaking from an area where privacy will be more valuable than ever.” Kuzuloğlu said that something you share will remain as a registry or GBT record forever.
“Metaverse in Web 3.0 will not have more users than claimed”
Due to the need for more advanced devices in the use of Web 3.0, it has become a matter of curiosity how the citizens of developing countries or people who cannot access computers with the features they want due to the exchange rate difference, as in Turkey, will adapt to this technology. Saying that Web 3.0’s metaverse and its derivatives will not reach as widespread as it is thought due to the high prices of accessories, Kuzuloğlu stated that Web 3.0 will not have more users than is assumed and people will continue to use the common devices they have.
