AI, VR, AR, 5G, and blockchain can build a mega metaverse
There are a number of technological developments that might lead to the creation of a metaverse. The most recent advancements in 5G networks and the use of the Internet of Things (IoT) will help create an environment where virtual reality, augmented reality, and blockchain can be utilized.
Emerging technologies are all on their own timeline. Some of them, like AI, have more of an application in the workplace for businesses. However, other technologies like 5G or AR are still being developed further & figuring out their use cases. There are challenges to each technology, but they are maturing and overcoming the challenges. Recent improvements show how they will likely converge in readiness over the next several years, underpinned by the cloud computing that is now ubiquitous. In the future, the convergence of AI and VR will result in a lot of opportunities for growth. This idea has been inspired by the term “metaverse” – a virtual space that contains different worlds.

The metaverse concept has a variety of possibilities and Facebook is one of them. Users could engage in social media and messaging with content targeted specifically for them by AI. And the use of VR is not limited to that as it also offers all-encompassing platform possibilities. It is predicted that there will be more than one metaverse at first, catering to individual interests such as gaming or sports. Current technology is more advanced not only because of the possibilities of immersion, but also because it does more. The next version of the Internet may be the metaverse, which is more immersive and may include artificial realities that are very convincing.
Instead of turning on the news, you could get a sense of what it’s like to be there. Instead of reading about an event in history – such as Washington crossing the Delaware – you could virtually see yourself there on its shores or on a boat. You could watch basketball games with 360-surround and also attend conferences virtually. The talks and workshops would be recorded and all the participants will be able to participate. In the metaverse, you can enjoy your digital presence as well as real life. Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of meta, mentioned that the ‘metaverse’ could be what you need to get done what he can’t find with his working teleportation device.
