Prominent Tech Companies Commit to the Metaverse Standards Forum to Promote Interoperability

Tech companies are forming unions to keep everyone updated as the race for AR/VR products increases. The latest is the Metaverse Standards Forum, which comprises major stakeholders in the industry, such as Epic Games, Unity, Sony, Meta, Adobe, Nvidia, and many more. 

However, despite the remarkable members of this forum, there are notable tech companies building consumer products in the Metaverse who are conspicuously absent from the group. They include Niantic, Apple, Roblox and Snapchat.

What is the Objective of the Forum?

The Forum is free to join and is expected to drive interoperability to allow developers to create products across several platforms. It will also focus on action-based projects such as open-source tooling and hackathons.

In a blog post, the president of Meta’s global affairs, Nick Clegg, said,

“There won’t be a Meta-run metaverse, just as there isn’t a ‘Microsoft internet’ or ‘Google internet’ today. Like the internet. The metaverse will be an interconnected system that transcends national borders, so there will need to be a web of public and private standards, norms and rules to allow for it to operate across jurisdictions.”

Khronos Group is the leadership team of the Metaverse Standards Forum. The group is a nonprofit developing AI, Machine Learning, AR/VR, and lots more.

According to the Statement released, the activities of the forum would involve diverse technology domains, including but not limited to:

  • Interactive 3D assets and photorealistic rendering
  • Human interface and interaction paradigms including AR, VR and XR
  • User created content
  • Avatars, identity management and privacy
  • Financial transactions
  • IOT and digital twins
  • Geospatial systems

This Forum is not the first of its kind, as last year, Tiffany Xingyu Wang, Chief Security Officer at AI content moderation company Spectrum Labs, launched Oasis Consortium. The Consortium developed a list of user safety standards to ensure better commitment to safety, as many companies prioritize product design and development to safety.
