According to Nick Clegg, the former British Deputy Prime Minister and current CEO of Meta alias Facebook, the meta-verse is undeniably the logical continuation of the internet. And, of course, technology companies must make every effort to guarantee their credibility to the general public before it is mass-adopted.
Since all industries face one digital transformation without precedent, the metaverse gradually takes a choice in many sectors. According to Nick, if metavers still poses innumerable risks and challenges, this technology, if implemented under the right conditions, can be a key component ofinclusion. And ultimately help bring people together. This by effectively filling in the existing gaps in physical space and current digital.
Metaverset: the future of online connectivity
If the adoption of the metaverse of all (companies as well as individuals) will not happen within 10 or 15 years, the metaverse will gradually begin its progress on a global scale.
As a reminder, the meta-verse is presented as a virtual 3D space where users can live a professional and social experience. very immersive 3D through their virtual avatar. This, especially thanks to virtual reality headsetsmart glasses or just their smartphones.
This idea, which at first seemed utopian to many, is gaining momentum every day. Especially since the company name changed from Facebook to Meta. And the claim of its founder Mark Zuckerberg, who sees the meta-verse as next generation of the Internet.
One thing we can be sure of when we look at how the use of the web has evolved over the years. We still remember the transition from computer to mobile connection. Without forgetting the transition from text content to images. Then to video, which has become the most Effective and relevant to share content.
In this progression, therefore, the metaverse can only be thatlogical development of the network.
Metaverse: an almost endless possibility for internet use
In his study, Nick Clegg provides examples of potential use cases for the metaverse.
According to him, this digital world, modeled after the real world, could be used in particular to enable school children to visit historical sites. And live there similar experience to what they might have experienced at that time. Also the metaverse could allow medical students to perform surgeries. And this in a virtual way by eliminating all risks of harming real patients.
It should be noted that Méta has recently launched its Horizons Workroom application, which provides a first outline of what a meet in the meta-verse. As it happens, this application gives the users the almost real feeling of being with another person or somewhere. And this even when they are alone at home or in their office.
In the end, the metaverse opens up new possibilities. But also the emergence of one endless new ideas which will have a great positive effect. And this both socially and economically.
Not just benefits
If the metaverse’s unique characteristics allow for new and enriching experiences, Nick Clegg also recognizes potential hazards of this new virtual world. Especially for marginalized communities online. In particular, he talked about the emotional impact that a very immersive experience could have in the event of an offensive or aggressive interaction.
In any case, companies that want to rely on the meta-verse will have to find the best solutions maximize your positive potential and reduce its disadvantages. This by learning to learn from the current internet. And to find the best way to regulate the metaverse before its actual development.
