He is also the founder of the world’s first spatial AI learning experience platform – LearnBrite, MootUp – the 3D Metaverse Virtual Events Platform, and founder of 3D internet company ExitReality – the world’s first web metaverse.

AI and VR in Event Planning

The talk starts with the interesting link between AI and VR in event planning. Stefanic, who created the Hyperspace Metaverse Platform, talks about his journey from studying virtual reality at university to creating several groundbreaking companies. His story shows the power of belief to push innovation.

Stefanic talks about the problems with regular digital events, like “zoom fatigue,” and talks about getting the audience involved using 3D spaces and avatars. This method makes events more interactive and enjoyable, moving away from boring, flat screens.

Gamification and Accessibility

The podcast talks about the importance of gamification in virtual events. Stefanic thinks that gamification is not just an extra feature, but a must-have for engagement. He uses examples like scavenger hunts and leaderboards to show how gamification can change how participants get involved.

Accessibility is also key for the success of digital events. Stefanic stresses the need for platforms that work on all devices, so that participants can join in no matter their tech skills.

Inside Hyperspace Metaverse

A lot of the discussion is about the Hyperspace Metaverse Platform. Unlike other virtual spaces like Decentraland, Hyperspace lets users control their own worlds, like running a personal website. This flexibility means events can be more specific to the organizer’s vision and what the audience wants.

Sustainability, Responsibility, and AI in Events

The chat later moves to the wider impact of AI in events, including recent changes like the European Parliament’s Artificial Intelligence Act. This act shows a move towards more responsible and regulated use of AI, which brings both problems and chances for the future of events.

Stefanic is hopeful that AI and VR can improve event experiences, and stresses the need for responsible innovation. He sees a future where 3D video, AR glasses, and AI-powered staff change interaction and improve the event experience, while thinking about health and well-being.

Well-Being in the Tech Age

Anca Trifan finishes the episode by emphasizing the need for mental and physical health despite tech advances in event planning. She and Stefanic talk about practices and platforms that include wellness elements, giving attendees a way to find balance and refresh.
