The Metaverse: Designing A New Global Paradigm

Mar 14, 2022

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

The Metaverse has already started. It’s no longer science fiction, large corporations like Epic Games, Facebook, Microsoft, and Roblox are heavily investing in its future. It may be considered the next version of the internet, but in reality, it’s the next version of our lives. From virtual cities and worlds to self-sovereign avatars and digital identities, we will discuss how it will transform our culture, education, and other aspects of our economy and daily lives.

Beyond mimicking what already exists, key leaders in this space will share how they’re pushing the boundaries of multidimensional world building, co-created immersive experiences, new social behaviors, decentralized economic systems, and social & environmental impact. This is the largest opportunity to seamlessly merge our physical and virtual worlds into one.
