First Metaverse, AI Week: How Metaverse Can Expedite DX in Egypt

In collaboration with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), the First Metaverse and Artificial Intelligence Week is organized by Meta in partnership with Egypt University of Informatics (EUI) and the American University in Cairo (AUC) on September 12-14, in Cairo.

Egypt’s First Metaverse and AI Week marks a milestone for stakeholders, including the government, private sector, industry, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, and academia to jointly design a roadmap for the uptake of emerging Metaverse technologies, with a focus on Egypt. The event agenda features sessions and panel discussions aimed at increasing the understanding of the Metaverse as the next iteration of the Internet and an area where Egypt can demonstrate early thought leadership and foster innovation.

Key topics of discussion include the adoption of technology in cultural and historic restoration, economic opportunities of emerging technologies, policy and regulatory frameworks of emerging technologies in emerging markets, technical deployment of next-gen technology, and how emerging technologies can drive the digital transformation agenda, among others.

Specific work streams include the policy and regulatory frameworks and vision for a Metaverse strategy as part of Egypt Vision 2030; new business opportunities and their potential for the economy; use cases in education, heritage, and tourism; and technical requirements and developer landscape.
