University of Houston commences metaverse campaign in collaboration with Nvidia, others

The University of Houston (UH) has joined the metaverse race, and hopes to build a gigantic industrial space in the metaverse. The institution has begun its plight in collaboration with top tech giants including AI Innovation Consortium, Nvidia and TechnipFMC. 

Many educational centres have hopped on the metaverse train. In July, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania became the first Ivey league Business School to introduce a course dedicated to educating learners about the metaverse opportunity. The University of Tokyo has also announced the launch of regular study programs in the metaverse.  

The Industrial Metaverse 

However, the University of Houston differs from these preceding universities as the institution is joining hands with foremost tech companies to create products for its proposed industrial metaverse. The industrial metaverse is a virtual program that leverages the use of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to facilitate the remote monitoring and assessment of projects. 

Renowned World tech giant, Microsoft is one of the leaders in this space, the firm in collaboration with Kawasaki and Kraft Heinz is set to facilitate the development of new products and supply chain monitoring. The team has also launched a metaverse-based drone training program for the US army. 

In a press release, UH has stated that the collaboration aims to “advance the creation of industrial metaverse applications as part of the digital oilfield laboratory initiative”. Furthermore the institution commented,

“This collaboration brings together end-users, technology providers, and domain experts to build commercially relevant use cases and accelerator tools and breakthrough informational silos. These resources ultimately enable an interconnected world with an industrial metaverse”

Adam Berg, Manager of Learning Solution at TechnipFMC stated,

“The purpose of the XR Network is to bring together the knowledge, tools, and people necessary to leverage XR technologies, to achieve business goals, and to transform industry environments.” 

Marc Spieler, NVIDIA’s Global Energy Director also commented,

“Our work with the AI Innovation Consortium and its ecosystem of partners and members is enabling the critical collaboration required between academic research, technology, and industry to scale artificial intelligence to achieve measurable outcomes in industries like energy and manufacturing.”
