CENTRE STAGE: METAVERSE UNPLUGGED
Fire Talk by Aragorn Meulendijks, YOM
As the first hype-cycle around web3.0 and the metaverse slows down, now is the time to look beyond marketing slogans and polarizing headlines.
What is this ‘metaverse’ what does it represent? what drives it? What technologies does it encompass, and is it really any different from previous tech bubbles or doomsday prophecies?
Technological progress has sped up over the last three decades beyond what anyone in the last century would have thought possible.
XR and A.I. have emerged from their respective winters. Blockchain is changing the game. Some people even talk of a global revolution, the end banking and the great reset.
Will it come this far?
What does this all mean for our society? our economy? our industries and our very lives?
Join Aragorn, aka Master of the Metaverse in an interesting and thought-provoking keynote talk.
