Technicians review metaverse carbon dioxide reduction, interaction processing, and more
Technologists around the world believe that the nascent metaverse will play a big role in the coming years, as it will affect our daily lives in many ways, including mitigating climate change and becoming a platform for all kinds of interactions. increase.
“The metaverse will be in the top five most important areas of technology in the next year.Technology Impact Beyond 2023: IEEE Global Surveyis a new report based on a survey of global technology leaders in the US, UK, China, India and Brazil.
Specifically, the study surveyed 350 CTOs, CIOs, and IT directors, covering the most important technologies for 2023 and future technology trends. The resulting report is presented in an interactive format. Advances in Connectivity; Metaverse for Sustainability; electric vehicles; “tiny” machine learning; And 6G base.
IEEE said the report points to a more connected, sustainable and virtual world. “Which five technology areas will be most important in 2023? Global technology leaders surveyed are Cloud Computing (40%), 5G (38%), Metaverse (37%), Electric Vehicles (EV ) (35%), and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) (33%) will be the five most important technology areas next year,” the organization said in an Oct. 27 news release.
The report shows which innovations will be key to moving the Metaverse forward next year, which in its early stages can be described as “an immersive digital network of 3D interactive worlds.” Innovations said to be of critical importance to advancing metaverse development in 2023 include:
- (71%) 5G and ubiquitous connectivity
- (58%) Virtual Reality (VR) Headsets
- (58%) Augmented reality (AR) glasses
The report also notes the growing impact of new age IT concerns such as: sustainable computingdesigned to mitigate global climate change.
“Technologies that promote sustainability are gaining in importance,” IEEE said. “The majority (94%) of those surveyed prioritize sustainability goals for 2023 and beyond, and the technology companies implement should be energy efficient and help reduce their carbon footprint. I agree with you.”
Technology leaders see the metaverse as one of the technologies driving sustainability. “We like to envision the metaverse as a social technology, but the metaverse also has the potential to help mitigate the impacts of climate change,” he said.
In fact, one of these technology leaders is Daozhuang Lin, IEEE Senior Member of the IEEE Consumer Technology Society, who makes the following predictions: In cyberspace rather than relying on real-world demonstrations that operate on conventional energy. ”
The report also shows that Metaverse-related technologies are expected to be deployed in various ways. IEEE said 91% of his respondents agreed that his company would aggressively adopt a metaverse technology strategy next year to gather employees for corporate training in offices, conferences, and hybrid meetings. I said yes. Moreover, more than three-quarters of his global technologists (76%) are expected to make 26%-75% of his interactions with colleagues, customers and management virtually in 2023. It is said that it will be
For the metaverse that received the most attention among respondents,The building blocks of the metaverse are all around us.”
The article further addresses Lin’s sustainability prediction that multiple simulations before using energy in real tests could lead to a reduction in carbon footprint. Additionally, Lin added:
The IEEE article states: “The vast majority of survey respondents — 92% agree, 50% of whom strongly agree — that Metaverse-related technologies will enable simulations in cyberspace instead of using traditional energy, A second survey result reinforces that data point: 98% of respondents said they were able to effectively design, develop, and secure their product prototypes and manufacturing processes. to test in 2023, say digital twin technology will be important in 2023 (including 68% who said it is very important).
Other takeaways from the article presented by IEEE are:
- Connectivity could drive development next year. The research found that connectivity may be more important than hardware when it comes to the metaverse. When asked which innovations he considers most important to moving the metaverse forward in 2023, 71% of respondents cited his 5G and ubiquitous connectivity. This is higher than VR headsets (58%), augmented reality glasses (58%) and haptic devices that stimulate touch. (56 percent).
- Don’t count hardware. While ubiquitous connectivity will facilitate smoother interactions, advances in computing power are likely to make VR headsets lighter, more energy efficient and ultimately more comfortable, according to the IEEE. Senior Member Eleanor “Nell” Watson said. -The nanometer and 5-nanometer classes have the potential to foster better hardware.
- Hybrid work can be a little more immersive. Remote work is taking hold, but businesses say they’re doing more to keep people connected, with 91% of respondents saying their company will aggressively implement a Metaverse technology strategy in 2023. Hired and agreed to bring employees together for corporate training across offices, conferences, and hybrid meetings. In line with this, more than three-fourths (76%) of the world’s technologists will be virtually says it will be done.
“The Metaverse has been one of the most hotly debated topics in the tech world over the past year,” concludes IEEE. “For some, the idea is a fully immersive digital experience where multiple users can share experiences in augmented and virtual reality. It seems unspeakably far away.
“But the building blocks of the Metaverse are all around us, driven by our growing reliance on digital connectivity in our personal and professional lives, accelerated by the pandemic.”
Note that the research supporting the IEEE report was conducted in mid-September. negative buzz Metaverse leader Meta’s efforts have resulted in poor recent quarterly results.That buzz included articles like guardian, “Metashare Plunge Is Proof That Metaverse Plans Never Really Set foot,” and that “critics stepped up demands on the chief executive [Mark Zuckerberg] Abandoning his astronomically expensive pivot to the “Metaverse”, a 3D virtual world intended to replace much of real-world socializing.
If this continues, the IEEE’s rosy metaverse projections may need revision.
