Meta, Microsoft, and 31 other companies have formed an organization to promote the creation of open standards for Metaverse technology. The body, called the Metaverse Standards Forum, will focus on establishing standards that make every Metaverse on the Internet interoperable, which ideally will allow these worlds to communicate.
Metaverse Standard Forum was born
While the metaverse is a loose concept that each company interprets and constructs according to its own wishes, some believe it is important to connect these separate worlds. That’s why Meta, Microsoft, and other companies like Epic Games came together to create the Metaverse Standards Forum, an organization designed to promote interoperability among these metaverses.
According to Startup PR statement:
[The body] There will be a focus on pragmatic, action-based projects such as implementation prototyping, hackathons, plugin festivals, and open source tools to accelerate testing and adoption of Metaverse standards, while developing consistent terminology and deployment guidelines.
Forums do not set their own standards. The organization will act as a hub for the different Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) merging the fields of virtual reality, graphics and interaction.
The creation of such a group is seen by some as a statement by the companies of a consensus on the importance of creating an open standard for the metaverse concept. On this point, Neil Trevett, president of Khronos, an organization that is part of the group, said:
The Metaverse will bring together various technologies, requiring a set of interoperability standards created and maintained by many standards bodies.
some important absences
While the group says it’s an open organization with free access to all interested groups, some big names haven’t been on the group yet. apple, one of the largest tech companies in the world, is interested in VR and AR (augmented reality) technology, but has not yet joined the forum. Other important game-based metaverses, like Roblox, have yet to join.
According to some experts, this suggests that even with an organization promoting standards on the topic, standardization on the metaverse, or the world groups that make up the metaverse, would be a daunting task, given the diversity of companies building platforms for it. Task.
