Tech Tour SXSW 2022
From March 11 to 20, 2022, Nicolas Diacono was in Austin Texas, to introduce you to SXSW 2022!
On the program for the latest trends: cryptocurrency, NFTs, metaverse, space conquest, robotics, VR… and more!
As a little preview with this teaser on your right… and just below, you have the 3 recap debriefs!
Review of this edition of SXSW 2022
The NFT craze has taken over the Texas SXSW 2022 festival. Every street corner in the city of Austin was at the heart of promoting non-fungible tokens. Beyond the artistic or monetary dimension, the entire ecosystem of the Internet of tomorrow was discussed through a multitude of presentations and round tables on this subject. NFTs are positioning themselves as the tool of the digital world for the next decades to come.
More generally, this 2022 edition demonstrates that the foundations of our lives as citizens, consumers, parents or simply human beings are being turned upside down. Whether by the latest technological advances, by the dangers that lie before us such as a pandemic, war or climate change, we are at the beginning of a new era. An era in which live over 100 years will be normal. An era in which buy items for your avatar will be normal. An era in which eating synthetic meat will be normal.
But to get there, the world needs to address the problem of climate change. This is the postulate of the world of innovation after the 2022 edition of the SXSW festival.
Monday, March 14, 2022, First recap debrief: beware of cyber pandemics…
In this 1st debrief, Nicolas looks back on the first 3 days of SXSW. First of all, a focus on Amy Webb‘s conference, based on 3 pillars. First of all, Artificial Intelligence becomes autonomous and can create fake news. Then synthetic biology applied to DNA represents a major challenge, because we discover that China has the largest database on the subject and that the risk of hackers seizing such databases is growing. In a doomsday scenario, these hackers could create a virus and demand ransoms (in crypto currencies) for the antidote… absolutely dreadful prospects! Finally, metaverses and NFTs now occupy a place of choice and will be used to create different avatars for us depending on the social networks where we discuss.
Wednesday March 16, 2022, Second recap debrief: mobility and a summary of Mark Zuckerberg’s intervention…
Focus on mobility with the intervention of the CEO of Lime, a provider of electric scooters that can be rented via a mobile application. For him, the deployment of electric vehicles has nothing to do with the environment. According to him, we must reconsider the model around individual mobility by rethinking transport infrastructure and “soft mobility”.
Mark Zuckerberg presented his vision of the metaverse: in the future, you will have many avatars depending on the actions to be taken in the virtual ecosystem. During his conference, he also announced that he was going to deploy and integrate NFTs on Instagram. However, it will be necessary to wait a few more years before having access to SmartGlass and augmented reality in a relevant way.
