In this episode of ACM ByteCast, Rashmi Mohan hosts Neil Trevett as they discuss Neil’s career, the evolution of computer graphics, and his role at NVIDIA, where his work focuses on helping developers make good use of GPUs. He also explains the benefits of standardization in industry and how open standards can enable innovation and interoperability. Neil also discusses how 3D is changing the landscape of e-commerce and online shopping and gives his perspective on the Metaverse and how it can leverage other disruptive technologies.
Leading standards organizations and companies have united to drive open metaverse interoperability needed to build the open metaverse. The Metaverse Standards Forum will explore where the lack of interoperability is holding back metaverse deployment and how the work of Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) defining and evolving needed standards may be coordinated and accelerated. Open to all at no cost, the Forum will focus on pragmatic, action-based projects such as implementation prototyping, hackathons, plugfests, and open-source tooling to accelerate the testing and adoption of metaverse standards, while also developing consistent terminology and deployment guidelines.
Join Host/Moderator Larry Rosenthal, Vice Chair of LA Siggraph as they welcome Industry Leaders from the Companies that are creating, building and selling the tools for the Metaverse. This webinar will focus on the Software and tool Platforms and will be presented via Zoom and have a Live VR Meet and Greet afterwards online in the LA SIGGRAPH VR Campus.
In Step into the Metaverse: How the Immersive Internet Will Unlock a Trillion-Dollar Social Economy, future tech strategist, entrepreneur, and thought leader Dr. Mark van Rijmenam delivers a startlingly insightful discussion about how the world as we know it will fundamentally change as the physical and the digital worlds merge into the metaverse, impacting the everyday experiences of people, companies, and societies. The author interviewed over 100 stakeholders involved in building the metaverse including our very own Neil Trevett, Khronos President, who talks about the need to create a constellation of interoperability standards to enable an open metaverse.
The recording for the panel, Complementary Standards for an Open Metaverse, held at the RealTime Conference features Khronos’ Neil Trevett, Martin Enthed, and Brent Scannell and is now available for viewing.
