In our sector, many people talk about interviewing becoming simpler and easier. This is something we can all discuss and I'm not so convinced about it because today we have virtual video calls, real video calls where we can see the audience. We can see the candidate, talk to them, and get their reactions, whereas in the metaverse you may have a three-dimensional view of the candidate, an avatar that the person is making for themselves. How real it is for the recruiter in evaluating them? The focus should be on understanding AR, VR, VI, AI, and how all these gel into the metaverse and the vision of the future for all these companies. They need experts who can see both sides of the picture and understand what companies can do in the metaverse and what technology is available.
Another area where metaverse is becoming quite popular is in the R&D and product development space because it's difficult to gather experts in a room in a particular location. So through metaverse, you have experts from all over the world. This collaborative approach to new product development is something that is catching on.
I think what the world is waiting for is a combination of the features of the metaverse with technologies available today. A real application that people will find useful and that is what meta, as a company is trying to do, as what they talk about, is their business and not technology. Their business is not to bring technologies together or products together, but their business is to bring people together.’
