This tech makes it easier and faster to access the justice system, according to the magistrate in charge, Judge María Victoria Quiñones. The metaverse is a fully immersive digital reality, generally accessed through XR (Extended Reality). The judge said the court hearing in the metaverse meets the needs of a fair justice system. It provides a neutral space for all parties and allows for a free exchange of information while removing the need for everyone to gather in the same physical space. The judge also made use of the AI chatbot ChatGPT. She asked it to explain terms such as ‘metaverse’ and ‘avatar’ to the participants, and she consulted ChatGPT on the best way to verify their identities. The metaverse is still in its infancy, but it’s growing fast. 54% of experts believe it will have half a billion users by 2040. Watch the video to learn more about the court hearing in the metaverse.
