Decentraland is gearing up for another immersive and community-centric event, this time targeting artificial intelligence (AI) enthusiasts.
In collaboration with Verse Digital, a Web3 development agency, and Metaverse Land, Decentraland is set to host the “AI World Fair” — a virtual conference that will bring together key figures from the worlds of AI, Web3, gaming, fashion, art, robotics, and more.
The AI World Fair aims to explore a diverse range of themes, delving into the intricacies and potentials of AI technology.
Topics on the agenda include discussions on the evolving relationship between humanity and AI, the expanding super-intelligent AI landscape, cryptocurrency, Web3 advancements, and the metaverse’s role in shaping these domains.
The virtual conference will also provide an opportunity for brands and companies to showcase their innovative solutions and explain their strategies for addressing the challenges and potentialities presented by emerging technologies.
Among the speakers scheduled to take part in the event are James Duez, Co-Founder and CEO of Rainbird, Sebastien Borget, COO and Founder of The Sandbox, and Diego di Tommaso, COO and Co-Founder of OVER, alongside many other influential thought leaders.
Scheduled to run from October 25 to 27, 2023, the AI World Fair will unfold within Decentraland’s metaverse, specifically within the newly-established Innovation City district. Innovation City is renowned for being the headquarters of Sophia The Robot — a social humanoid robot created by the Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics — known as Sophiaverse.
The event also offers a gamification experience for attendees. Participants will have the opportunity to accumulate virtual currency — which can be exchanged for prizes and NFTs — through their involvement in games, quests, and puzzles.
This announcement follows Decentraland’s recent unveiling of this year’s Music Festival, themed “Rebirth & Regeneration.” The festival will celebrate art and music within the metaverse, inviting artists to take part, earn rewards, and showcase their creative works.
