Please join Leslie Shannon, author of the Metaverse-focused book Interconnected Realities, as she examines exactly what the Metaverse is, how it’s developing, where it overlaps with AI, and just how long it’s going to be before you can get help from ChatGPT during a job interview. If you think the Metaverse is dead or irrelevant to you or your life, prepare to be surprised.
