Improbable is developing an operating environment that makes building simulated worlds possible. Improbable is developing SpatialOS; a distributed operating system that makes building simulated worlds possible. Simulated worlds provide unique insight to those asking questions of complex systems. As well as enabling completely new experiences in gaming, simulated worlds can solve significant problems in areas as diverse as defence, energy, city efficiency, health, and finance. Improbable is providing software foundations in support of IoT, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence right now. Tomorrow the sky is the limit!
For some of the massive potential for this type of technology see this video of Herman Narula:
There are so many use cases for this technology. Games of course. But also simulations of all sorts. And real models for science.
Here is one use case of interest, a simulation of the backbone of the Internet:
