After that it became a dream pursued by companies..Intel displays its technologies to reach the metaverse
Neil Stephenson coined the term “Metaverse” in a science fiction novel almost 30 years ago. Over the past few years, it has become the ambition of many tech companies to access the metaverse to enable rich, globally connected virtual and augmented reality environments that will allow billions of people to work, play, collaborate and socialize. entirely new way.
In fact, the metaverse could be the next major computing platform after the World Wide Web and mobile.
There is good reason to believe that we are on the cusp of a major IT transformation; A transformation that will allow real-world computing with immersive experiences to become mainstream.
Computer-generated animation in movies today is almost indistinguishable from live action footage, games today offer lifelike graphics experiences, and virtual and augmented reality screens have advanced rapidly in recent years. years, creating incredibly rich and immersive experiences.
The once in a lifetime pandemic has forced many people to rely on digital technology as the only way to communicate, collaborate, learn and sustain our lives.
What does it take to create metaverse?
All that is needed to put two people in a fully virtual environment are compelling avatars detailed with lifelike clothing, hair and skin tones, all rendered in real time, based on data from sensors that capture objects. 3D, real world voice and gestures. These sensors transmit data at very high ranges and low latency, and in a model that captures the environment, it can contain real and simulated elements.
Now imagine solving this problem on a large scale – with hundreds of millions of users simultaneously – instead of two people, and you will quickly realize that today’s IT, storage, and network infrastructure is missing. just not enough to realize this vision.
To provide these capabilities at scale, the Internet’s infrastructure will need major upgrades.
What is the Intel Metaverse project?
The core elements of the metavers Intel is working on can be summed up in 3 layers, and they are working hard at it in many critical areas, report says published on the website of the company.
Within the upper intelligence layer, Intel’s work focuses on a unified programming model, software development tools, and open libraries to make it easier for developers to deploy complex applications.
The meta-operations layer describes the infrastructure that provides computing to users beyond what is currently available to them.
The metacomputer layer is the raw power needed to run these experiments in the metaverse environment.
Intel Core processors have delivered some of the best gaming in decades and are particularly good at creating many of today’s games, VR / AR experiences, and lifelike movie animations on PCs and workstations. by Intel processors.
Advanced Intel processors, infrastructure processing units and 5G solutions bridge the gap between cloud and user, which will be essential for the massive distributed computing demanded by the metaverse network.
This new architecture requires a lot more, and the new Xe architecture aims to accelerate and deliver these rich and comprehensive experiences at the customer level, including the Intel Arc Alchemist GPU for gaming and creativity and Ponte Vecchio for accelerating compute. and high performance visualization. , both of which will be available next year.
In addition to these Intel 2022 products, there is a multigenerational roadmap for high performance XPUs.
Intel believes that immersive computing, running at scale and accessible to billions of people in real time, requires a thousand times more computational efficiency than today’s advanced technology.
Several advancements in the areas of transistors, packaging, memory and interconnect will help achieve this and are underway.
Intel shared some of these technologies at the recent MEI conference, along with some hardware enhancements, and they also need new algorithms and software architectures to access the metaverse environment.
The internet of today may have changed our world because it was built on open standards, and Intel says it is committed to creating the internet of the future by leveraging and augmenting existing industry standards and creating new ones. news.
