World Wide Web creator and 2016 ACM A.M. Turing Award recipient Tim Berners-Lee expects virtual reality (VR) and metaverse-associated technologies to shape future online interaction.

"People ask about virtual reality, and if the metaverse is going to be the whole future, and the answer is that it's going to be part of the future," he said.

Berners-Lee said he envisions VR becoming a new form of media, one in which "you'll be able to sit between a movie and a VR world of that movie, for example."

He is firmly opposed to the largest technology companies controlling much of their users' personal data.
