What is the course about?
We are currently in a Hype Cycle for metaverses, just as the hype around Artificial Intelligence subsided during the COVID pandemic. We have emerged as more tech savvy users of the internet - whether it be video livestreaming for entertainment and daily news or conferencing online with our colleagues and family - as a result of lockdowns.
The world has changed and Extended Reality took a huge leap forward along with The Metaverse as a concept being put into practice. The biggest Big Tech has pivoted to it with 100s of billions of dollars in investment. They are taking Virtual and Augmented Reality to the next level. Next Gen users, the MZers, expect Immersive Experiences in the "verse" and a multitude of these proto-metaverses to rapidly improve in their lifetime.
This largely means the verse becoming more cognitive as the Conversational AI improves and the UX or "interfaces" get better at creating hybrid digital spaces and blending our experiences and communication both on- and offline. Strap yourselves in, we are about to go on a ride through metaverses, XR and cognitive interfaces!

What is the target audience?
Anyone with an interest in technology, at all levels of skill and expertise. From beginners to actual experts and practioners within the industries of Mixed Reality, Artificial Intelligence (machine learning, NLP, image recognition) and those building the metaverse platforms of tomorrow, including Bitcoin fans, crypto workers and NFT creators.
