We are hearing the term “metaverse” being used increasingly within the news, society, and especially technological circles. The idea of a parallel digital universe is one that can seem dystopian or exciting for many. How this technology will impact Smart Cities of the present and future is the crucial question we shall be asking today. To help us luddites disentangle this complex topic is Christina Yan Zhang, CEO of the Metaverse Institute, a business consultancy service relating to the metaverse. She’s also the Founder and CEO of Arete Intelligence which provides education administration programs, and a Festival Chairperson for the Metaverse Week held in London. Christina Yan Zhang got her PhD in Civil Engineering from Loughborough University.
