New digital capabilities are announced every day. And one development that has been causing a lot of excitement recently is the ‘Metaverse’. In this Future Sight podcast episode, we take you beyond the hype to explore where the fledgling Metaverse is today and what the future might look like.
Join Capgemini Invent’s Chief Technology and Innovation Officer Kary Bheemaiah and show host Ollie Judge as they delve into the new business models, standards, technology and cultural shifts that will shape the Metaverse.
Let’s start with what the Metaverse is. At its simplest, it’s where the virtual world interacts with the physical; where information from the external environment is translated into a virtual context. How you monetize this and innovate in the Metaverse is still very much up for grabs.
Kary and Ollie look at how companies might get started in this space — what they need, why interoperability is important, and the role of blockchain. But is there a fly in the ointment? Will a lack of computational power be a barrier to scaling the Metaverse?
Listen to our podcast episode to find out all about the emerging online world in which interconnected communities work, trade and play.
