Metaverse Communication and Computing Networks

Understand the future of the Internet with this wide-ranging analysis

"Metaverse" is the term for applications that allow users to assume digital avatars to interact with other humans and software functions in a three-dimensional virtual space. These applications and the spaces they create constitute an exciting and challenging new frontier in digital communication. Surmounting the technological and conceptual barriers to creating the Metaverse will require researchers and engineers familiar with its underlying theories and a wide range of technologies and techniques.

Metaverse Communication and Computing Networks provides a comprehensive treatment of Metaverse theory and the technologies that can be brought to bear on this new pursuit. It begins by describing the Metaverse's underlying architecture and infrastructure, physical and digital, before addressing how existing technologies are being adapted to its use. It concludes with an overview of the challenges facing the Metaverse. The result is a thorough introduction to a subject that may define the future of the internet.

Metaverse Communication and Computing Networks readers will also find:
* Detailed treatment of technologies, including artificial intelligence, Virtual Reality, Extended Reality, and more
* Analysis of issues including data security, ethics, privacy, and social impact
* A real-world prototype for Metaverse applications

Metaverse Communication and Computing Networks is a must-own for researchers and engineers looking to understand this growing area of technology, and entrepreneurs interested in establishing Metaverse businesses.
