Key-Learnings

  • The metaverse does not yet exist but there are similar experiences in AR/VR applications and video games.
  • Specification, development, validation, and delivery of the metaverse-like experiences represent grand engineering challenges
  • Recent advances in AI/ML for testing and automation will play a key role in the success of the metaverse

Why We Can't Wait to Automate

Although the idea of the metaverse began as fiction, it is likely that it will soon become a reality. Conceptually, the metaverse can be thought of as an online 3D cyberspace, connecting users across the globe in various aspects of their lives. Think of multiple computing devices and platforms connected together via the Internet, allowing each user’s avatar or character to navigate through a virtual space, and become immersed in different experiences everywhere from hangouts to sports games, bar mitzvah’s, weddings, among others. It is predicted that extended reality (XR) technologies such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and brain computer interfaces (BCI) will be used to power metaverse development. However, the development, validation, and delivery of the metaverse-like experiences represents a grand engineering challenge. Join Tariq King as he discusses the engineering risks and quality concerns associated with metaverse development and shows you where elements of the metaverse are being implemented today. Tariq believes that testing and automation will play a key role in the success of the metaverse and will introduce you to promising directions and reasons why we can’t wait to test the metaverse and beyond.
