Policy Question(s)

What AI technologies will Metaverse be more dependent on?

What are the technical challenges of Metaverse, especially in less developed countries?

What is the impact of Metaverse on environmental sustainability and children's rights?

What will participants gain from attending this session? Several aspects about metaverse could enrich the participants will be highlighted, such as:
1. The artificial intelligence techniques that Metaverse will rely on, especially in the field of data augmentation,
2. Its role in environmental sustainability,
3. The technical challenges of Metaverse in less developed countries such as Palestine,
4. Participants may also benefit from addressing all aspects of Metaverse such as its impact on children and their protection,


 Metaverse is an electronic space in which humans can interact through animated avatars that represent them. Currently, there are some uses of the basic components of Metaverse technology, such as virtual, augmented, mixed realities, and artificial intelligence. Metaverse will open a door for artificial intelligence, which will be a challenge not easy, which is to produce and generate images that are true to reality. In normal cases, artificial intelligence through generative models succeeded in producing fake images that simulate the real, and this will be considered a new challenge in the world of metaverse.
Metaverse will need a critical amount of interconnected technological technologies, the absence of one of will negatively affect the other. Analysis of the Palestinian situation and its preparation for these technical challenges will be studied: VR, AI, AR, BCI and internet infrastructure (5G). Moreover, metaverse will make governments to raise the awareness about environmental issues which will be complementary with their vision to achieve sustainable environmental development, as Metaverse will help reduce carbon emissions by replacing physical goods with digital ones.
The most requested artificial intelligence techniques to support the metaverse, the technical challenges of metaverse and analysis of the readiness of the Palestinian state, the role of metaverse and their impact on the environment and sustainability, and the policies that should be put in place regarding child's rights in the world of metaverse are all topics that will be detailed and put in the session.

Expected Outcomes

The expected outputs will be an analysis of reality and its readiness for metaverse (taking Palestine as case study), and an increase in awareness of the importance of artificial intelligence and its employment in governments to simulate the next world.

Hybrid Format: Interventions will be pre-trained and the time between us will be organized,Those who are online will make sure of an effective internet connection,All documents will be arranged and ready for viewing immediately.
