Since the surge of enthusiasm for the metaverse, including some of the planet’s greatest entrepreneurs (such as Mark Zuckerberg), tech company projects around the metaverse have sprung up. For the first time in the world, one of the largest Chinese video game development companies, NetDragon Websoft, has elected a virtual humanoid robot as the CEO of one of its flagship subsidiaries (in Fujian). As the top decision-maker, the AI-driven robot will optimize the performance of the company, in particular through rational and fully transparent decision-making. This is an AI + Governance strategy that represents an important step forward in the company’s quest to move closer to a metaverse-centric organization.

NetDragon Websoft, founded in 1999, is one of the world’s most famous video game developers, including 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. Based on the results, the company is now valued at 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 it is taking its productivity to the next level with its AI-based management strategy. “We believe that AI is the future of business management, and our appointment of Ms. Tang Yu is indicative of our commitment to truly using AI to transform the way we do business,” said Liu, president of NetDragon Websoft, in a statement.

Tang Yu, in particular, will allow streamlining process flows, improving the quality of work tasks, as well as the speed of their execution. This aspect of AI can improve employee productivity 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 on a daily basis. With powerful algorithms, the robot can also provide optimal risk management. Another big plus: Madame Tang Yu is perhaps the only leader in the world who works 24 hours a day and never needs to rest.

Goal: Metaverse-Based Model

At present, the company has not yet provided many details about the characteristics of Madame Tang Yu, but the adoption of this strategy is an important step in the business world. For NetDragon Websoft, the next step will be to gradually develop the algorithms that control the CEO’s robot to create an open, interactive, and transparent control model. Eventually, the company can be managed through a working community based on interactions in the metaverse, “which will allow us to attract a much broader base of talent around the world and enable us to achieve more ambitious goals,” says Dejiang. Liu.

The cyber-communities united through the company’s online games are already experiencing a kind of world similar to the concept of the metaverse. Since online games currently offer services and functionality that can extend to certain aspects of our lives (through characters or avatars), they are the closest to the metaverse. NetDragon Websoft is the first company in the world to actually apply this concept in the context of work, where it believes there will be many benefits with the global rise of the remote work trend.

At this point, we don’t know more about the pace of adoption of this revolution in the world of work. In particular, it should be kept in mind that when AI interfered with certain aspects of human life, they tended to cause controversy.
