The initiative "Metaverse: the opportunities of the future" consists of six broadcasts, which bring together international experts to reflect, from a Latin American perspective, on the possibilities and challenges of the metaverse from the fields of extended reality, law, artificial intelligence, economics, philosophy and human rights, among others.
The third space, which brought together almost 250 people from 23 countries, was held on June 8 and analyzed the main global challenges that will arise from the development and deployment of the metaverse. Governance, privacy, data, security, interoperability and infrastructure were discussed. Regarding connectivity challenges, Paola Cicero, general director of the Office of Commissioner Javier Juarez at the Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) of Mexico, mentioned that "infrastructure is a fundamental issue for the development of the metaverse. It is important to make the necessary investment to modernize the current infrastructure and close the gap in terms of connectivity, affordability and appropriation", she added that "in Mexico and in all countries, a very important link is the participation of the government so that these technologies reach all urban spaces".
