Fireside Chat on ‘Terrains and Metaverses’
In June 2022, we attended the Defence Simulation Education & Training (DSET) conference, a one-day virtual and two-day on-site conference in Bristol, UK. For its virtual day, we discussed future developments in simulation in the form of a fireside chat on 'Terrains & Metaverses'. At the virtual fireside, Rusmat Ahmed and Pete Morrison, simplified the complexity of “metaverse”, explained the correlation between terrains and metaverses, and discussed the future of metaverse in military training. Here’s the video that many have asked to see.
