The "old web" of information, centered on 2D static content with HTML/CSS as the dominant paradigm, is based on web technologies that are decades old now, and is poorly equipped to serve the needs of AR/VR and spatial computing. Currently, a number of exciting new open source initiatives are coming together to create a new open spatial paradigm for the web, with grammars of interaction suitable for blending the virtual with the real and supporting AI and ML safely and wisely, to create a web of perception and shared context. This talk will look at the philosophy, technologies, innovations and innovators, working on this critical mission for spatial computing.

As we know, there has been a lot of recent chatter, while many may even call it “hype”, over the concept of the ‘Metaverse’. As with most emerging technologies, the biggest challenge is navigating through all this hype, filtering through the rogue companies and individuals that may seek to exploit others in the early stages, and identifying viable business models that could appropriately be built upon these technologies and become sustainable. Join us as we curated a group of technologists and entrepreneurs who have discovered early success with investors, earnings, and both community and public support in their companies that will hopefully serve as foundational models that will further contribute to the advancement of the Metaverse.
