Here's a great glimpse into the visualization metaverse to come from a Hollywood Director - "Virtual reality -- how the metaverse will change filmmaking | George Bloom | TEDxHollywood" ...
What is IBM developing in terms of digital goggles and AI especially vis-a-vis a virtual earth (and as classroom and field site and eventually for brain science research)?
Here's a recent blog post of mine that relates to this TEDTalk, but in a quite different way conceptually.
"How might one ENTER INTO ANY FILM in a 3D interactive movie realistic VIRTUAL WORLD?, MATLAB, a) first MAP any film into an avatar script in a 3D virtual world, b) then add one’s own avatar into the mapped 3D virtual world film, c) then develop avatar agency for avatars from film … so like historical re-enactors, at Plimoth Plantation, MA, d) much like Second Life avatars can be scripted to dance, e) See related Richard Rorty and avatar agency in virtual worlds' blog posts"
And here's an earlier blog post of mine that suggests an approach to agency, avatar agency and Artificial Intelligence vis-a-vis language within 3D virtual worlds.
"Web: Avatar Agency, A Talking Richard Rorty Bot?"
