As technology continues to advance in the modern world, remote work is becoming a much more accessible option to those who are unable to make it to their place of work. It also allows businesses to employ a much wider range of people outside of commuting distance. Despite these clear benefits, remote work still has flaws. The remote work environment inhibits employees from developing meaningful social connections, which can lead to weaker relationships between employees and managers, less communication between coworkers overall, and potential mental health issues from social isolation. The answer to this problem is the metaverse, an interconnected virtual environment in which users can collaborate and converse on a personal level, and Intellectmap, a secure AI assisted area within the metaverse.
What are the cons of working remotely?Remote work is an amazing opportunity for employees who are unable to make it to their office, but it is not a perfect solution. Due to the lack of physical proximity, many find it hard to connect to their coworkers when working remotely, and collaboration can be difficult when you can no longer work next to someone. This lack of connection comes with many serious issues, such as reduced interaction with management, causing many to feel their work going unnoticed, reduced creativity, and difficulty in building a cohesive corporate culture. A great way to counteract these problems is by using the metaverse.
Imagine the internet as a physical space, where different sites and services are buildings along a busy street. You could walk into your favorite video streaming site to watch a movie with friends, take a stroll down to a social media platform for happy hour, and stop by your local news outlet to discuss the headlines while enjoying a coffee. The metaverse is not much different. Simply put, the metaverse is an interconnected virtual environment in which users can operate an avatar in order to interact with the environment from anywhere in the world. Examples of this can be seen today in programs such as Roblox or VRChat, but these are often exclusively for recreational use. We believe the metaverse is also a powerful tool for business and remote work, and the advantages and use cases are near infinite. Say you want to have a team meeting with coworkers in your workspace. In the metaverse, you’d be able to see who’s available and ready at their desks, who’s on their lunch break, and who’s currently busy working on a project. Or maybe you’re the one working on a project with a coworker. Rather than try and set up a video call or handle interactions through lifeless emails, you could have your avatar stand up from their desk and walk over to your coworker's workspace, allowing for easy and immersive communication on a personal level. If video calls are substitutes for face-to-face conversations, the metaverse is a substitute for being in an office with the people you’re talking to. This isn’t limited only to the people in your business however. In the metaverse, everyone is connected, so if you’re an executive in a large company and need to talk with one of your suppliers to solve an issue, you can just walk down the street and be right outside their virtual building, ready to discuss whatever you need. This allows for a level of connectivity and immersion that is only accessible through physical proximity, but can be done anywhere in the world. Now, how do you securely operate your business within the metaverse? The answer is Intellectmap.
What is the metaverse?
What is Intellectmap?If the metaverse is like a city, Intellectmap is a safe business district for companies to establish themselves within it. With Intellectmap, each employee has a guardian Angel that protects them from cyberthreat and guides them with sophisticated artificial intelligence to ensure they have a productive working environment. In other words, Intellectmap is a service that allows companies to have a secure and safe operation within the metaverse, allowing sharing and collaboration on documents, assignment and tracking of tasks, and management of relationships with vendors, customers, and employees. Through Intellectmap, you can be confident that your remote working experience in the metaverse will be easy, accessible, and efficient, thanks to the wonderful AI system, Angel. Angel is an AI platform containing several different services to aid your experience in the metaverse, from business services that help streamline communication, to cybersecurity training and security. Angel functions as a guardian and assistant, making sure you get exactly what you need from the metaverse in a safe, secure, and efficient fashion. Angel is also powered by AI, meaning it grows and improves constantly.
Another advantage of Intellectmap is ease of use and accessibility. Virtual environments such as the metaverse are often associated with virtual reality, but many have issues using VR, such as getting dizzy or motion sickness. However, the highest cost of using VR is the loss of sight in the real world. This can lead to many problems in the workspace and prevent multitasking across the physical world and the virtual world. Intellectmap, however, can be accessed with or without a VR headset, meaning your level of immersion and ease of use are free for you to control.
ConclusionRemote work is becoming an increasingly more popular method of work for companies, but it’s flaws are also becoming more apparent. With Intellectmap, these problems can be mitigated through use of the metaverse, and thanks to Angel's services, can be done in a way that is efficient, accessible, and secure. Intellectmap is your secure office on the AI metaverse.
