"We need several orders of magnitude more powerful computing capability, accessible at much lower latencies," said Raja Koduri, senior vice president and general manager of the Accelerated Computing Systems and Graphics Group at Intel Corporation.
"The entire plumbing of the Internet will need major upgrades."
He highlighted that we are on the cusp of the next major transition in computing and metaverse may be the next major platform in computing after the world wide web and mobile but reckons that our current computing, storage and networking infrastructure is not enough to achieve this vision.

To achieve this, data transfer at super high bandwidths and extremely low latencies are required. Beyond the hardware improvements, we also need new algorithms and software architectures, Koduri said.
