Enabling the
industrial metaverse

Harnessing collaboration, empowering people

Live at the MIT Media Lab | June 12, 2023

The emergent industrial metaverse

The metaverse as a digital ecosystem is taking shape more and more with each passing day. Openness and interoperability are the basic prerequisites for building the industrial metaverse, and it will be the users who create it - their reality and experiences, their business needs and innovations. So, how can organizations benefit from the industrial metaverse, and how do they prepare? We explore the benefits and promises of this technology, the enabling tools and solutions, and the digital business platform that will help pave the way to realization.

Whether your footprint begins with one machine or supports an entire factory, join us to discover where simulation meets reality at the intersection of design, business, and technology as we speed toward the next evolution of human-machine convergence.
