Through the use of new technology, could humanity be on course to predict the future and even travel through time? According to one expert specializing in artificial intelligence, these massive advancements could be closer to reality than it might seem.
In an article published by the World Government Summit, Keith Strier, the vice president of worldwide AI initiatives for computer tech company NVIDIA, explains that with the development of the metaverse, virtual worlds will take humanity to a new frontier.
“The application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to government, industry and society at large is one of the most transformational developments of our time,” Strier begins. “One of the newest and most intriguing paradigms for governments to understand is the metaverse.”
While the term metaverse was popularized in recent times by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, the concept dates back to sci-fi writer Neal Stephenson's 1992 novel Snow Crash. As Strier explains in his article, “the metaverse is a concept, not a place.”
“No one company can build or own the metaverse,” Strier explains. “It is better to think of the metaverse as the capability to build a ‘virtual world.’”
Instead, in the future, there will be millions of virtual worlds, all built for different purposes. As an AI specialist, Strier details how “Some will be consumer oriented. Some will be corporate. Some will be industrial. Some will be classified. Some will be private, but many will be connected.”
With new technology allowing for the simulation of light, matter, physics and even human intelligence, Strier outlines how these new virtual worlds, running on supercomputers, will have little, if any, limitations.
Through the ability to create a “digital twin” of the physical world, researchers, with the assistance of AI, will have the chance to better gauge “how people, machines and nature behave and interact.” According to Strier, this means that it will become possible to “study the past and predict the future.”
Ultimately, Strier says, “this introduces the possibility for time travel.”
As of present, consumers can already purchase land in various metaverses, with one vacant plot selling for more than $4 million this past March. Industry experts have estimated the metaverse serves as a potential $1 trillion revenue opportunity.
