In the metaverse, virtual interactions need to feel human. This means interactions need to be real time, lag free, dynamic, engaging and human centric, regardless of geography. The team at Gather has developed a platform that allows for virtual spaces via metaverse-like experiences to give teams a way to connect and collaborate. Over the last few years, the technology to support and allow for an experience like Gather to exist has become more and more readily available. It's these solutions that act as the plumbing for the metaverse. In this session, we'll discuss the importance of the plumbing that powers experiences like Gather and how these solutions are making the metaverse become more and more real for people around the globe.
