CII-KNOWLEDGE SUMMIT

Knowledge Management & the Metaverse

The metaverse is a concept of a persistent, online, 3D universe that combines multiple different virtual spaces. Blockchain, metaverse-like applications already exist and provide people with liveable incomes. It is a future iteration of the internet. The metaverse allows users to work, meet, game, and socialize together in these 3D spaces. The metaverse will be driven by augmented reality, with each user controlling a character or avatar. 

The big tech giants are trying to lead the way in the technology. However, the decentralized aspects of the blockchain industry is letting smaller players participate in the metaverse’s development as well. The connections between the financial, virtual, and physical worlds have become increasingly linked.

The metaverse is a seamless convergence of physical and digital lives, creating a unified, virtual community where we can share knowledge. The metaverse is still early in its evolution, and there is no singular, all-encompassing definition to which people can turn. Themes of what the metaverse and its application usage is and could be, however, are emerging. A key point is that there is no one virtual world but many worlds, which are taking shape to enable people to deepen and extend its applicability in the management of data, knowledge and culture in the organization. This is done by adding an immersive, three-dimensional layer to the web, creating more authentic and natural experiences. The metaverse even has the promise of facilitating accessibility from the comfort of the home, breaking down boundaries and democratizing access to key goods, services, and experiences.

With this Background CII is conducting Global Knowledge Summit 2022 with the theme “Metaverse in Knowledge Management”. The Summit will be conducted online for two days. It will focus on leveraging Metaverse in Knowledge Management, Unchanging fundamentals of KM & New challenges, Metaverse 101 for KM, Technology aspects of metaverse & Academic Leverage.
