Since the flurry of enthusiasm for the metaverse, including from the planet’s biggest entrepreneurs (like Mark Zuckerberg), tech company projects around the metaverse have been abounding. One of China’s largest video game design companies, NetDragon Websoft, has chosen a virtual humanoid robot as the CEO of one of its flagship subsidiaries (in Fujian) for the first time in the world. An artificial intelligence-led robot occupying the highest decision-making position will optimize the company’s performance, especially through rational and completely transparent decision-making. It is an “AI+management” strategy that represents a significant step forward in the company’s desire to move closer to a meta-oriented organization.
Founded in 1999, NetDragon Websoft is one of the world’s most famous video game developers, especially for online games. Eudemons online , Heroes Evolved , Conquer Online and Under oath. Through these virtual spaces, the company contributes to the creation of online communities with millions of people around the world. Due to its performance, the company is now worth several million dollars and has several subsidiaries in China.
“Madame Tang Yu”, the newly elected CEO, leads one of the company’s largest subsidiaries: Fujian NetDragon Websoft. NetDragon Websoft believes in taking its performance to the next level through an AI-based management strategy. ” We believe that AI is the future of business management and our appointment of Ms. Tang Yu represents our commitment to truly embrace AI and transform the way we do business. “, explains Mrs communicated Dejian Liu, President of NetDragon Websoft.
In particular, Tang Yu would make it possible to rationalize process flows, improve the quality of work tasks and the speed of their execution. This aspect of AI could improve employee performance by providing them with an efficient and fair workplace. The robot also has the ability to store real-time data and analyze it to make rational decisions every day. Thanks to powerful algorithms, the robot could also ensure optimal risk management. Another big plus is that Madame Tang Yu is probably the only leader in the world who is efficient 24 hours a day and never needs a rest.
Goal: a model based on the metaverse
At this time, the company has not yet given many details about the characteristics of Madame Tang Yu, but the adoption of this strategy is a significant step in the business world. For NetDragon Websoft, the next step will be the gradual development of algorithms controlling the CEO robot in order to achieve an open, interactive and transparent management model. Ultimately, the management of society can be done through a working community based on interactions in the metaverse,” which will allow us to attract a much wider talent base from around the world and enable us to achieve more ambitious goals says Dejian Liu.
Cyber communities gathered through online games developed by companies already experience a kind of world similar to the concept of a metaverse. Since online games currently offer services and features that can extend to certain aspects of our lives (through characters or avatars), these are the closest experiences we have to the metaverse. NetDragon Websoft is the first company in the world to truly embrace this concept in a work context where they believe there would be many benefits with the global rise of the remote work trend.
At this time, we do not know more about the acceptance rate of this revolution in the world of work. In particular, it should be remembered that when AIs intervened in certain aspects of human life, they tended to stir up controversy.
