After the artificial intelligence big model has become a hot spot, is the metaverse cold? Experts from the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology believe that the metaverse, as a carrier for the integration of the digital world and the real world, has nurtured unlimited application scenarios, which is expected to give birth to a number of new products, new models and new formats, and is becoming a new track for the digital economy.
Recently, China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other five departments recently released the "Three-Year Action Plan for the Innovation and Development of the Metaverse Industry (2023-2025)", which became the first policy guidance document issued at the national level in the development of the metaverse industry.
He Baohong, director of the Institute of Cloud Computing and Big Data of the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, recently interpreted the document at the 2023 Trusted Metaverse Development Conference, saying that the metaverse is a digital information technology construction, which maps and surpasses the real world from the real world, and has a digital living space with a new social system, which is an important trend and direction of human social change and industrial transformation in the future. In this sense, the metaverse is an all-round, deep and systematic reshaping of human society that brings together various information technologies and application scenarios.
He Baohong introduced that many countries in the world have taken the metaverse technology industry as the focus of development, and have strengthened strategic planning, strengthened the overall layout, increased resource investment, and strived to build a first-mover advantage. For example, the United States lists "advanced communication and immersive technologies" supported by the core of the metaverse as one of the top ten key technology areas. South Korea has established a metaverse alliance and plans to invest $2022 million to develop a metaverse platform in 2000.
"China's manufacturing system is complete, there are many scenarios, the market is large, and the digital economy is booming, providing a solid foundation for the development of the metaverse industry. Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong and other places have also introduced metaverse development policies, and positive results have been achieved in industrial development. Wei Liang, vice president of the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, said at the conference.
The conference released the "2023 Metaverse Industry Map". Wei Kai, deputy director of the Institute of Cloud Computing and Big Data of the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, said that in the warming environment of domestic and foreign industrial policies, metaverse investment and financing are very active, and this year's investment and financing in all aspects of the metaverse is better than last year, especially the number of hardware investment and financing is much more than last year, which shows that the industry is very confident in the investment in the underlying hard technology of metaverse supporting technology.
