Metaverse investment has become more and more popular, and even Li Ka-shing’s Victoria Harbour investment has begun to deploy. The first investment target locked in the “Top Player” starring Tye Sheridan co-founded the AI technology provider Wonder Dynamics.
Wonder Dynamics is headquartered in California, USA. Aiming to develop AI technology that can greatly reduce the cost of special effects and shorten the time for special effects. In addition to the application of this technology to movies and television, it is also expected to expand to the field of metaverse.
In the past half century, many large companies in the Internet field were founded by students and professors at Stanford University. The rise and development of Silicon Valley relies to a large extent on the multi-faceted support of Stanford University. For the future Web3.0 era, Stanford is also ready. In this semester, I taught a metaverse experience course “Virtual Human”.
Stanford University teaches metaverse experience class “virtual human”
Stanford University professor and Silicon Valley futurist Paul Saffo (Paul Saffo) said, “Humanity has always had a deep desire for alternative reality.” This month, Stanford University launched a metaverse experience course “Virtual people”. Course number: COMM166/266.
Students can wear VR devices to take classes remotely in the dormitory or anywhere else. Up to 300 students can be present in a virtual “class” at the same time. These classrooms can be virtual museums, some more life-like venues, or corners off the beaten track. Such as volcanic craters and submarine reefs. According to the course schedule, all students will jointly complete more than 3300 hours of VR learning this year.
COMM166/266 is the first course in the history of Stanford University to be conducted entirely in VR. Stanford University Communication Studies Professor Jeremy Bailenson (Jeremy Bailenson) said: “In this class, students do not occasionally play VR. In fact, VR is our basic equipment for this class.”
