PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- A new podcast is bringing tech experts together to discuss openness in the metaverse. "Building the Open Metaverse" is the brainchild of 3D geospatial expert Patrick Cozzi and 3D software industry veteran Marc Petit.
Cozzi is CEO of Cesium, the leading platform for 3D geospatial, and the creator of 3D Tiles, an open standard for streaming massive amounts of 3D data. Petit is VP and General Manager of Unreal Engine at Epic Games, one of the major players working on bringing the metaverse - the interactive and immersive next-generation internet - into reality.
Listeners can expect to hear from a broad range of technologists working on a metaverse that is based on open standards and interoperability across platforms.
The inaugural episode features journalist, investor, and metaverse expert Matthew Ball, along with Samantha G. Wolfe, NYU Professor and founder of PitchFWD. Later guests include Neil Trevett, VP of Developer Ecosystems at NVIDIA and President of graphics standards organization The Khronos Group, among other notables from Amazon, Unity, Red Hat, the Linux Foundation, and more.
