Bracing for the Coming AI-Powered Metaverse

Mar 13, 2024

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Interactive discussion on the newly published title “Our Next Reality - How the AI-powered metaverse will Reshape the World” published by Hachette Books.

We are entering a new technological age in which AI and immersive media will transform society at all levels, mediating our lives by altering what we see, hear, and experience. Powered by immersive eyewear and driven by interactive AI agents, this new age of computing has the potential to make our world a place where the boundaries between the real and the virtual, the human and the artificial, rapidly fade away. If managed well, this could unleash a new age of abundance. If managed poorly, this technological revolution could easily go astray, deeply compromising our privacy, autonomy, agency, and even our humanity.
