The role of the world’s digital brain is to improve the operating efficiency of human society, solve the complex problems faced by the development of human society, and better provide support for the coordinated development of human beings.
In the 21st century, the science and technology ecology presents more and more brain-like characteristics. Various cutting-edge scientific and technological concepts and technologies are forming a world-scale digital brain. The meta-universe is also a part of the digital brain of this world and bears its consciousness and dreams. The main feature of the structure is that the digital space with the big social network as the core begins to evolve from two-dimensional to three-dimensional, which can map the real world to the digital space, and can also visualize human fantasy and bring human dream-like real experience.
However, because human brains and eyes still have problems such as inadaptability to the meta-universe and dizziness, one judgment is that in the future distribution of the two-dimensional and three-dimensional time use of digital space, the large amount of human information exchange and sharing activities should still be in two When the three-dimensional digital space is completed, some scenes that require in-depth experience need to enter the three-dimensional meta-universe.
This article will discuss the background of the meta-universe explosion, the relationship between the development of the world’s digital brain and the meta-universe, how the digital space evolves into the meta-universe, and the value and existing problems of the meta-universe.
01 The background of the sudden explosion of the meta universe
The 21st century is an era of turbulent technological concepts, from Web2.0, cloud computing, Internet of Things, 3G/4G/5G, Industry 4.0 to big data, artificial intelligence, digital twins, blockchain, urban brains, and corporate brains. In 2021, Metaverse will become a new technology hot spot under the impetus of Nvidia , Facebook, Microsoft and other institutions.
On October 31, Facebook changed its name to Meta, which further increased the popularity of Metaverse in the field of science and technology. So far, there is no unified definition of what the metaverse is: some of the more typical definitions include:
The meta-universe is a virtual augmented physical reality that presents the characteristics of convergence and physical persistence. Based on the future Internet, a 3D virtual space with the characteristics of connection perception and sharing.
Meta universe is a new type of Internet application and social form that integrates multiple new technologies. It provides an immersive experience based on extended reality technology, generates a mirror image of the real world based on digital twin technology, and builds an economic system based on blockchain technology. , The virtual world and the real world are closely integrated in the economic system, social system, and identity system.
“Meta universe” is a virtual space parallel to and independent of the real world. It is an online virtual world that mirrors the real world, and it is an increasingly real digital virtual world.
Although there are many definitions and understandings of the metaverse, 3D, 3D immersion, virtual reality, and VR/AR are the most prominent keywords. What is the essential meaning of the metaverse? Why did it break out at this point in time? Is industrial development inevitable or hype? What is its future development trend? In the face of a new explosion of scientific and technological concepts, it is necessary to research and analyze these issues from the perspective of scientific rationality.
02 The relationship between the development of the world’s digital brain and the meta-universe
Various signs indicate that since the 21st century, the world’s science and technology ecology with the Internet as the core has shown more and more brain-like characteristics. The product of the growing nervous system.
2019 published “The rise of super-intelligent” has drawn a diagram of the development of the digital world of the brain, this figure predicted in mixed -zhi after energy and cloud reflex arc, thinking space and the dream world of digital brain throughout space will become the new hot spot , And they have a close relationship with the meta universe.
As can be seen from this picture:
The social network corresponds to the neuron network .
Cloud computing corresponds to the central nervous system.
3G/4G/5G corresponds to nerve fibers.
The Internet of Things corresponds to the sensory nervous system.
Industrial Internet / cloud robot / intelligent driving a corresponding movement of God through the system.
Big data/artificial intelligence corresponds to the foundation and power that drives the operation of the world’s data brain.
The corporate brain/urban brain/industrial brain corresponds to the initial formation of the world’s digital brain.
As a brain-like complex giant system, the thinking space and dream space of the world data brain will continue to mature under the impetus of big data, virtual reality, digital twins and other technologies. The meta-universe emerging in 2021 can essentially be regarded as the industrialized name of thinking space and dream space.
03How does the digital space evolve to form a meta-universe
In 2020, Ma Huateng, Chairman and CEO of Tencent , proposed the Real Internet, and pointed out that when the Internet becomes “all real”, with the help of VR and AR technology to restore the immersive experience, users will no longer have to rely on imagination. , it is considered net purchase also as the general walked into the store, to get the full nuanced “all true experience,” 2021 yuan universe suddenly broke out, Facebook announced renamed meta full access to yuan universe, causing great concern to the industry. Also in this year, ByteDance acquired PICO, a leading manufacturer in the domestic VR industry, at a price of 9 billion yuan.
It can be seen that the world’s most important social network giants have set foot in the meta-universe field in different ways, which shows that social networks are closely related to the formation of the world’s digital brain thinking and dream space . Below, let’s take a look at how the digital space represented by social networks evolves step by step and forms the meta-universe and world digital brain.
In 1969, the Internet was born, and the realization of Metaverse had a globalized hardware and software foundation.
In 1989, the World Wide Web standard began to be formulated, laying the foundation for the development of WEB technology. From 1990 to 1998, human users mainly used characterized electronic bulletin boards (BBS) for information interaction. At this time, there is no construction of the digital world environment in the digital space, no clear personal roles, and the user interaction interface is dominated by characters.
From 1998 to 2003, blogs began to rise, and an independent “digital person” role appeared in the digital space. At this time, the main manifestation was that characters and pictures constitute the main body of the blog’s personal space. Since then, Internet users have personal identities and roles. Speaking and displaying personal information in the digital space, the user interaction interface is dominated by characters at this time, and pictures begin to appear.
In 2004, social networks began to rise, FB was officially launched, QQ, Twitter, and Weibo continued to appear and developed rapidly. In the digital space, digital people (personal user spaces) can interact with digital people to form social networks and social relationships.
In 2009, the mobile Internet entered the 3G era. With the widespread use of smart phones, the digital space was further expanded with the expansion of the application range of social networks. Since then, a large number of pictures and sound elements have enriched the content of the virtual digital space.
In 2013, with the purchase of OC by FB as a sign, virtual reality became a hot spot in the industry. However, due to the immaturity of VR glasses, social network giants and consumers were insufficiently prepared for virtual reality social networks. By 2019, the virtual reality craze has receded. The first effort to evolve the digital space to the 3-dimensional stage failed.
In 2014, the rise of 4G networks, and the rise of 5G in 2018, video began to become an important content form in the digital space based on social networks. Internet users mainly browse 3D video content through 2D smart phone screens.
In 2018, e-commerce and payment for knowledge, NFT, and virtual currency have initially matured and been widely used in the digital space based on social networks.
In 2020, industrialization based on urban brains, digital government, and organizational transformation will continue to expand social networks and digital space to evolve towards the interconnection of all things and the interaction of all things, but it is still in its infancy.
In 2021, the rise of the meta universe, its core purpose is to guide the social network as the core digital space to evolve into a three-dimensional digital human and digital environment. It forms a 3D digital world space with a unified immersive experience in the world. The interactive scenes of people and people, people and things, and things can be the mirror image of the real world, or the digital imagination world created by creativity. The rise of the meta-universe can be regarded as the second attempt to evolve the digital space to the three-dimensional stage.
From the perspective of the development of digital space with social networks as the core, meta-universe is a social network that has evolved from a social network between people to a large social network of people and people, people and things, and things and things. The product of evolution from one dimension to three dimensions. At present, the social and commercial influence on the reality of Metaverse can be found in large social networks. The only thing lacking is the three-dimensionality and immersion.
04 The meaning and problems of the meta universe
Virtual reality and the meta-universe evolved from it provide humans with a revolutionary new experience. It can not only map real world scenes into digital space, but also present human fantasy and imagination through digitalization. Humans can Experience the scenes that can only appear in dreams immersively. The fact that Metaverse has had such a big impact in the industry is also related to its revolutionary and subversive future trend.
At present, the Internet of Everything and the Interaction of Everything are just sprouting, and the short video social interaction is initially mature, but from the perspective of the development rhythm of science and technology, Metaverse has skipped an important link in the development of science and technology. That is the foundation of the digital space. Social networks have not yet completed their evolution to large social networks. The digital space is still not ready for the full transition from two-dimensional to three-dimensional. More importantly, when humans enter the meta-universe, there are still bottlenecks in the physiological adaptability of the brain and eyes.
The core and most influential dilemma of Metaverse is the problem of user vertigo.
Symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, and imbalance are very common among virtual reality users. A survey conducted by the Austrian virtual reality company Junge Rmer showed that among 991 respondents, more than 75% had at least one of these symptoms.
The survey also shows that these negative effects are particularly strong for users who use VR devices for the first time. In addition, the duration of these symptoms and the length of use also maintain an almost linear relationship. This problem is still a brain science problem that has not been overcome, laying the first obstacle for mankind to realize the dream of the meta-universe.
The second important obstacle is that long-term use of VR glasses can easily cause myopia, which can interfere with the development of binocular vision.
Due to the deviation of the pupil distance between VR glasses and the eyes, it is easy to cause eye fatigue, dizziness, and some symptoms of nausea and dizziness. The tester’s eye adjustment function is significantly reduced, and what the human eye sees will directly affect the human brain.
For a new technology, young users are often the most enthusiastic first users, but due to the characteristics of Metaverse itself, there is a huge risk to the health of young people, and this risk also affects all users. This may be a big risk. Naturally invisible hands are used to prevent human beings from being overly addicted to the meta-universe mediation method. Therefore, the three-dimensional digital world (meta universe) with VR glasses as the portal may not be able to subvert the two-dimensional digital world with smart phones as the portal.
From this, a judgment for the future is that 80% of the time humans will still interact through the two-dimensional digital world of smartphones, and 20% of the time they need to enter the meta-universe to carry out games, movies, experience and other activities.
Attachment: The definition of the world’s digital brain
The world digital brain (system) is a product of the combination of the Internet brain model and the construction of a smart society, and is a brain-like intelligent system generated after the urban brain is global. With the joint participation of human intelligence and machine intelligence, and the support of cutting-edge technologies such as the Internet of Things, big data, artificial intelligence, edge computing, 5G, cloud robots, and digital twins, digital neuron networks and cloud reflection arcs will be the world’s digital The focus of brain building.
The role of the world’s digital brain is to improve the operating efficiency of human society, solve the complex problems faced by the development of human society, and better provide support for the coordinated development of human beings. In terms of system evolution, the world’s digital brain will expand to provincial and national brains through urban brains, and eventually globalization will be gradually completed.
