Humans need to harness the power of the metaverse to communicate and learn across distances. This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin during a speech at the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Data Analysis, The Flight of Artificial Intelligence (AI) 2021, according to TASS.
At the same time, he pointed out that one could not escape from the real world. The term “metaverse” itself was proposed by the famous science fiction writer three decades ago [Нил Стивенсон]… And according to his plan, people literally ran away, escaping in them from the imperfection of the real world. But such an approach would be too pessimistic for us today, and I think that path is definitely not worth following. On the contrary, it is necessary to use the capabilities of the metaverse so that people can communicate and work together, study and carry out joint creative and commercial projects, regardless of long distances,” said the head of state.
Putin also concluded that this is a challenge for companies.
In February, the Russian president announced that the world will be governed by whoever becomes a leader in the global competition for technology and knowledge. “We are seeing global competition for technology and knowledge growing rapidly around the world. (…) It is clear that whoever takes the lead will determine the further development of all mankind.
