Stephen Ng: Embracing The Metaverse, Behind The Hype
In this episode, our host Gundy Cahyadi talks to Stephen Ng, the Chief Metaverse Officer of WIR Group, one of the leading companies in integrated Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence in Indonesia and SouthEast Asia. The WIR Group has the vision to provide a world of Metaverse for everyone in the era of web 3.0.
While the metaverse is a hype these days, there still seems to be little understanding of it in the general public. But the metaverse will transform how every activity is done in the future, including business, customer interaction, and many more. A virtual world, like Metaverse Indonesia, is an attempt to meet all the needs of the community in the future.
Stephen shared that Indonesia, already with one of the highest number of virtual gamers in the world, has the huge potential for the growth of the metaverse. There are challenges, however, including the lack of talents, and how they can hone their skills and expertise to be able to innovate in the current Metaverse era.
