AI and large language models have dominated the discussion around technology in 2023, all thanks to ChatGPT.
But as little as a year prior, it was the metaverse that was the talk of the town. So much so that the popular social media platform Facebook rebranded itself as Meta and promised to bring more virtual reality experiences to the market.
What do these two technologies have in common? Well, way more than you would imagine! Generative AI improvements will speed up metaverse development by combining existing and developing technologies.
Even though a full-fledged metaverse doesn’t exist at present, many functionalities are already available. These metaverse components can empower businesses to be future-ready and quickly adapt to new technological changes. This is why it is essential to understand the magnitude of the technologies that would give life to the metaverse.
In this podcast, TCS senior content strategist Christian Gulliksen talks to Howard Schargel, an innovation evangelist at TCS, and Quinn Banks, Director, Risk and Cyber Strategy, TCS, about how enterprises can take baby steps toward the metaverse by experimenting with its different components.
They discuss the minimally viable metaverse, which makes it easier for enterprises to create and test metaverse-like environments using their existing resources, and the risk and security issues associated with venturing into such a space. For instance, businesses can create a Pokémon GO kind of augmented reality experience, which requires nothing more from customers than a smartphone.
