Vice Rector III (Planning and Cooperation) Universitas Indo Global Mandiri, Prof. Dr. Erry Yulian T Adesta, Ph.D, said he would give a presentation to take a closer look at the metaverse in the future.
Metaverse comes from two words, "meta" which means "beyond" and "universe" which may refer to a world with matter that will go beyond this universe. The term metaverse was created in "Snow Crash", a science fiction novel by Neal Stephenson in 1992.
In the novel, humans, as programmable avatars, interact with each other in a three-dimensional virtual space that is used as a metaphor for the real world.
Metaverse has the potential to use Virtual Reality (VR) or Augmented Reality (AR) as we know it today, to engage users in alternative worlds. In the future, it will significantly affect many things in the universe," he told IGMTVnews.com, Monday (14/3/2022).
According to 101 Blockchains, there are many critical elements in developing a metaverse specifically infrastructure, human interface, decentralization, spatial computing, creator economy, exploration, and experience. Therefore, the metaverse is predicted to benefit sectors such as games, health, education, finance, tourism, construction, and so on.
In the next decade or more, we will see the emergence of new domains of information and interactions that are essentially spatial, he said.
In addition, he continued, changes in people's lives would be broad and deserve to be studied by themselves, but XR and the metaverse are not just new topics to learn, they have become a device used for research and dissemination. (andhiko tungga alam/zulfiqor Ammar)
