THE METAVERSE OF WORK
In June 2021 Mark Zuckerberg explained to his employees why Facebook is becoming a metaverse company. The future of the company would go far beyond its current project of building a set of connected social apps and some hardware to support them. Instead, he said, Facebook would strive to build a maximalist, interconnected set of experiences straight out of sci-fi — a world known as the metaverse.
Listen to a interview with Mark Zuckerberg on Facebooks metaverse here at The Vergecast
The Metaverse was coined in Snow Crash, Neal Stephenson’s 1992 sci-fi novel and refers to a convergence of physical, augmented, and virtual reality in a shared online space. A more recent and stellar example is found in Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One” from 2018.
Henrik Eriksson at Vasakronan and his collaborators invites you to a round table on how this vision can be applied on The Metaverse of Work.
You will take part in a presentation of an ongoing prototype/case for the “3rd workplace” and have the opportunity to explore, learn and give input in a workshop around the topic on how the new normal in working remotely and distributed can be solved with new services and co-labs, as well as a new approach.
We will also expand the conversation and talk/co-create about both workplace and worklife strategies in a metaverse way, which could include a synchronous environment of the physical world together with computing platforms; VR and AR, PC, mobile devices and game consoles.
With your experience and knowledge, we want to explore the important challenge around how worklife strategies can help to maintain and enhance innovation learning from the challenges from the pandemic.
