Whats behind the walls of Metaverse, how long it could take to be ready for Mark Zuckerberg’s ambitious project



Following the unveiling of the Facebook parent company’s CSR with Artificial Intelligence, several estimations of how long it will take to complete Mark Zuckerberg’s ambitious project were produced.

“It won’t be a simple video game like Second Life,” said Édgar Medina, a digital marketing and technology specialist who worked on the AI Research SuperCluster (RSC), a supercomputer that will be crucial for the metaverse and which Meta unveiled on January 24.


As we reported on Tuesday, the media had an exclusive in presentation of the RSC, which is being developed by a large team of AI researchers from Meta to build better learning models that will allow them to work on the translation of hundreds of languages, analyze texts, process images, text, and video at the same time, and, most importantly, develop better-augmented reality tools for the metaverse.

In this regard, Infobae was tasked with seeking the advice of two technological experts on the supercomputer unveiled by Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta.

“The metaverse is a notion that is continually evolving. Before we see a platform capable of becoming the norm for this edge of Web 3.0, it will be years, if not more than a decade. “Facebook, or Meta,” as Medina refers to it, “certainly wants to be the one who determines the rules of the game for that metaverse.”

He noted that the formal creation of the metaverse will require a huge investment in research and development, which in turn will take several years to consolidate. He also pointed out that Zuckerberg’s project is very ambitious, so this supercomputer may not be enough and requires several of the same or even quantum computers.

“A true metaverse, an alternate world to ours, is not going to be a simple video game like Second Life, it is going to be a platform that will require a processing capacity that may not only require one supercomputer, but several, or even quantum computers ” , said the specialist.

He presumed that the process of creating the metaverse began several years ago and is not as recent as it seems, as he recalled that between 2015 and 2020 Facebook was made of companies focused on Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence such as BigBox VR and Downpour Interactive. In addition, from 2019 to date, it acquired 22 startups also focused on the development of these technologies.

“It will be essential (to have all those companies) to transform the metaverse into an environment that solves people’s problems, an essential environment, a place where we all need to be,” Medina said.

Carmen Ana Montiel , social innovator, Cargo Ceo of Wheeling Women , who is also focused on non-discrimination of people with different abilities, pointed out that this super computer focused on the metaverse can be a great advance in the sense that it could help eliminate barriers physical conditions affecting the disabled.

“The idea of ​​living in a digital reality through the metaverse from disability means analyzing the opportunity for people with disabilities, enjoying autonomy and independence within the Meta interface, a space where wheelchair users do not find obstacles such as stairs, it is to explore a trend and start a society really for everyone in the virtual environment , “he said for Infobae.

Montiel said that the evolution of Zuckerberg’s project will make it possible to break the discrimination gap , providing inclusive development in all areas such as education and business models.

“Technology must be a democratic service that contributes to minimizing exclusion as a social problem that can be combated through artificial intelligence,” he pointed out.

It should be emphasized that the RSC is important for the creation of the world that Meta has proposed . AI-powered applications and products will play a crucial role, as high processing power will allow many tools to work efficiently.
