ABOUT THE METAVERSE 

 

Metaverse refers to a kind of experience in which the outside world is perceived by the users (human or non-human) as being a universe that is built upon digital technologies as a different universe ("Virtual Reality"), a digital extension of our current universe ("Augmented Reality"), or a digital counterpart of our current universe ("Digital Twin"). Named after the universe, a metaverse shall be persistent and should be massive, comprehensive, immersive, and self-consistent. Described as "meta", a metaverse should be ultra-realistic, accessible, pervasive, and may be decentralized. In a narrow sense, metaverse may be simply defined as Persistent Virtual Reality (PVR). In a broad sense, metaverse is the advanced stage and long-term vision of Digital Transformation. It is generally agreed that metaverse will have a profound impact on our daily work and life, across all industries and sectors, reshaping the economy and society for all humankind.
