"Dimensions of Change: Measurements for a Metaverse" Virtual IEEE OC CmptrSoc. & OC ACM Mtg
Virtual Event Details
Approaching its 30th birthday, the notion of a "metaverse" (from Neal Stephenson's novel Snow Crash) is getting new attention as an arena of new technologies, business models, and behaviors. As a space for creation and combination, it calls for measurement of how we're progressing, and of how far apart we are from each other in what we're trying to do and what we'll call "success." Peter Coffee joins us for a new examination of potential innovations, present trends, and lessons worth remembering from past attempts to achieve similar goals.
