Cities, AI & the Metaverse

March 22, 2022

BROUGHT TO YOU IN COLLABORATION WITH CKBA

We’re living through two historic transitions: the ongoing global move into cities, and an accompanying worldwide development of the digital commons, known as the metaverse.

To ensure a healthy and sustainable digital and urban society, it’s essential that we optimize both urban and digital life, in combination.

It’s a huge idea that presents both opportunities and challenges, and leaders in Vancouver and Seoul are on its cutting edge.

That’s why CityAge, in collaboration with the Canada-Korea Business Association, Populous, AInBC, Vancouver’s Frontier Collective, the Royal Bank of Canada and KOTRA explored the role of cities and their residents in the metaverse.
