The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2023 is about to begin in Las Vegas, drawing fresh attention to the consumer electronics sector as well as highlighting the expanding roles of virtual healthcare, the Metaverse, as well as Web3. Dozens of attendees are anticipating a comeback to the crowded rooms as well as a quick agreement which had been once the feature of the yearly tech extravaganza until the epidemic forced organizers to go virtual in 2021 and hybrid last year. Experts from the technology industry from all over the globe go to Las Vegas each year to try out the newest gadgets and learn about the latest developments in the fields of housing, automotive, cosmetics, healthcare, games, and much more.
What is Virtual Health?
The goal of virtual healthcare is to enhance patient health or give therapy in a manner analogous to an in-person visit. A doctor and a patient may begin communication through video, audio, or other technology. The term "virtual healthcare" refers to medical treatment provided via remote connections, such as audio and video connections that enable "virtual" sessions to take place in real time, from anywhere in the world.
What is Metaverse?
Several in the information technology field see the metaverse as the next generation of the world wide web: a unified, social, permanent, and fully three-dimensional online environment where people may have unique and extraordinary experiences unavailable in the physical world. Access to this simulated environment is being facilitated by rapidly developing technologies like virtual reality (VR) headsets and augmented reality (AR) glasses, but other essential elements of the metaverse, like sufficient bandwidth or interoperability guidelines, are likely years away or may have ever eventuated at all.
What is Web3?
Many concepts have been suggested for Web3, the third iteration of the World Wide Web, including token-based economies, distributed ledgers, and decentralized data storage. Contrasting it with Web 2.0, several engineers and journalists have pointed out that a small number of businesses, sometimes referred to as "Big Tech," control the majority of the world's data and online content. In 2014, Ethereum owner Gavin Wood created the name "Web3," Cryptocurrency fans, huge technological corporations, and venture capitalists were all showing an interest in the concept.
More on CES 2023
The technology industry has been through a lot this year, but by 2023 the Metaverse and Web3 will finally have their separate rooms. LVCC's Central Hall will host this event. Ahead of CES 2023, Senior Vice President of Membership and CES Sales for the Consumer Technology Association Kinsey Fabrizio discussed upcoming events and announcements on the CES Tech Talk podcast. She said that Central Hall would then have a section devoted to video games, the Metaverse, as well as Web3. She let out that the Central Hall location of CoinDesk's Web3 studio would make it a hotspot for attendees. During the event, the studio will conduct interviews with key figures in the Web3 community and report on the most recent developments in the worlds of Cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
Most of the largest exhibitors at the LVCC may be found in this hall. The Coindesk Web3 Studio will serve as the event's epicenter for all things Web3, the Metaverse, and blockchain in the LVCC Central Hall. At this event, CoinDesk would open its doors to thought leaders and innovators who will highlight the most significant advances across markets, innovations, as well as capacities. As healthcare practitioners seek innovative ways to engage with patients outside of traditional healthcare settings, healthcare organizations have begun taking a renewed interest in this gathering. The use of artificial intelligence and robots, as well as virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR), will be front and center at this year's CES in Las Vegas. Wearable technology that tracks a broad variety of vital signs and activities, as well as the aforementioned smart home technologies, are likely to make use of remote monitoring tools and platforms. Put simply, the healthcare system has become integral to the design and performance of consumer electronics, whereas it was formerly seen as an afterthought or bonus feature.
You may attend presentations such as "Gaming to Lead us into the Metaverse" and others in the CES 2023 Metaverse & Gaming track. A panel titled Luxury Brands Embracing Innovation: How the Best of the Best are Leaning into Artificial Intelligence, Metaverse, and Beyond will also be held in this stream, which would focus on the intersection of clothing as well as luxurious life>
Parallel to CES, a plethora of other events, demonstrations, and panels will be held. It may seem like "Metaverse winter" outside, but the fact is that spring has sprung. The next decade will be crucial in shaping the future of the Metaverse, and Artificial Intelligence and Extended Reality deserve to be at the forefront of this development.
