The metaverse demystified, An IITPSA Blockchain and Crypto SIG
August 16, 2022 @ 16:30 - 17:30
The metaverse has captured the imagination of many people and promises a world that combines the physical world, digital, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and cryptonomics into one immersive experience. The term metaverse was first coined by Neal Stephenson in the science fiction novel Snow Crash in 1992. Since then, major tech giants have jumped on to the trend and are all actively creating for the metaverse.
In this presentation, John Singh, Chair of the IITPSA Blockchain and Crypto SIG will clearly define what the metaverse is and examine all aspects of this exciting concept. He will also talk about the challenges around digital identity, centralization and the technological hurdles that need to be overcome to achieve this world. Everyone is welcome to the metaverse but do we want the giant tech companies to dominate like they have in the current iteration of the internet known as Web 2.0? Join this presentation and discover the answer to this question and many others. You will leave the presentation with new insights into this emerging concept.
