Question 1 of 3
Listen to the video above and fill in the blanks with the words you hear.
I’m a total wildlife nerd. But I’m also a technologist, and it took me 20 years to figure out how to the two towards wildlife . But I think I finally got it. Technology has come so far in that time in generating about our planet and its other non-human inhabitants. For example, there’s a satellite in that’s dedicated to tracking the movements of hundreds of species. We can pluck DNA samples from , soil, and dung to identify individual animals. And whales and seals are around right now with sensors on, collecting ocean data for us. Now, this data is incredibly to the science of protecting the planet. But I think it could be even more valuable. What if we use that data to give animals a unique digital identity that’s recognizable by humans? Now why would we do this? Well, most of us have a digital that we use to communicate and socialize with each other. But Albert in St. Louis, for example, has no way to create a with an orangutan in Borneo. How can we expect him to empathize with its protection? If we want to preserve all life on Earth, we need to create with all life on Earth. And relationships are built upon recognizing someone’s unique identity. So maybe giving one to that orangutan could a bond with Albert that helps them both in the real world. Now, this is not as far-fetched as it seems. The and the data exist to do it. But it’s not enough to just create the identities. They need a place to come alive and be found by humans. Somewhere that creates an immersive and way to stay engaged. Well, if current predictions come true, most of our socializing, work, and play will shift to games, virtual spaces, and yes, the metaverse. And that’s where stories will be told, and relationships built. So for every avatar that is interacting or consuming in these spaces, let’s have the same for Mweituria the elephant, Ataia the Jaguar, Fio the orangutan, and hundreds of thousands more. And the events of their lives, as supported by the data, can be recreated digitally. That might be the of Fio, the migration of Mweituria, a newborn cub to Ataia. And these events, and others, create the moments for people to feel the space to feel bonded. Not because they all of a sudden want to, but because they now have access that they never did before. Some will use that space to connect directly with orangutan researchers in Borneo. Others will identify new (patterns} in elephant movements. Some will learn about by actually witnessing it.
