Interview Questions / Answers
The first question she asked Mr. Syed Tariq was, What is Reactive Space, and elaborate on their Metaverse services?
Answering this, Mr. Tariq introduced Reactive Space as a Web 3 space, which includes blockchain development for Enterprises, Crypto, and Metaverse. Talking further, he said, their aim is to bring trust and transparency in the process or services, providing security.
Businesses like supply chains prefer transparent, secure, ERP systems. Finances, or normal business services. Blockchain brings trust factor to the companies, and it is a way that cannot be re-edited, whatever entry you make in the business, cannot be modified.

When people start adopting those things, they will feel as if they are sitting right in front of each other.
The Pandemic happened, and people were taking interviews, and classes via Zoom. We moved to remote work but here de-tangibility was an issue, but Metaverse solves this issue. People would be able to see their colleagues as if they were sitting next to them.

It has its own significance, all they have to think about is the classroom environment, and the kind of education they bring to the table for students to analyse. The only hurdle which is being faced is the de-tangibility part, they cannot feel it and for that purpose, the Metaverse Suit has been introduced, and when both wear suits, the sensors it has triggered.
If they are going to shake hands, both of them will feel it because of the sensors, and it will feel real, and in the near future, it will come up with many more features.
Ms. Poore further asked, How Dubai would be able to develop this technology and how people will start using it in day-to-day life? In what ways are companies using the Metaverse, and why do they engage with our services? Will it take 5 to 10 years to develop? Or is it taking a fast pace?
Syed replied with a No, he said that it happens faster, and a revolution of technology is taking a fast pace. People have already started using it, to interact with customers, colleagues, etc.
If you want to go shopping, you enter into any of the brands and there is this specific shop, and you will be able to see all the clothing available, providing you with a representative as well who will guide you.
You will be able to come and consult the customer support people and feel the emotions. The only things they are bringing up, as we interact in real life. Serving the purpose of Bringing people close to each other.
