Metaverse refers to a digitally simulated environment that is connected to the physical environment. It is now trending both to the industry and academic stakeholders. Similarly, intelligent transportation has continued to attract attention in the quest for safety, traffic management and management of greenhouse fossil fuel emission. Although, metaverse is at the infant stage, many stakeholders believe that its acceptance will be a function of issues such as applicability to various sectors, supporting technologies, interoperability, and open platform for continuous content generation. This workshop is intended to accelerate research discussion and trigger collaboration. It will also witness the demonstration of the creativia metaverse platform. Africa and indeed Nigeria have the combined comparative advantage of population, land size and active users of various online platforms. It is therefore imperative that research into the applicability, technologies, acceptance, and possible challenges of metaverse platform deployment in Africa be conducted. Creativia and various institutions in Nigeria will be leading the research in this direction.
In this workshop, the following topics will be covered
Director Creativia and Chief Event Host
