The Metaverse, the 3D version of the internet, is growing faster than we can imagine, and companies are working 24*7 to build fantasy imagination into reality. Even Sophia, the world’s famous humanoid robot takes a trip into the Metaverse with her own virtual world in an intelligent anime version as 100 intelligent non-fungible tokens (iNFTs).
Nicoletta Iacobacci (Ph.D.) is a professor at Webster University in Geneva, at Jinan University in Guangzhou (China.) Her studies focus on ethics, emerging technologies, and the positive and negative effects of technological progress.
