Today at the Dubai Expo 2020 VisitMalta.com launched an industry-first virtual citizen program that combines the infinite possibilities of Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and the Metaverse. Their first citizen is named Marija and represents a typical Maltese woman who has all the answers to visitors’ questions about the island’s history and locations. About the Virtual Citizen Program Marija is an industry first: a resident of Malta that exists only in digital form. But that doesn’t mean that she is a flat, robotic being with no personality. Marija was intentionally created with traits common to human residents of Malta, including physical characteristics and features typical of the Mediterranean region.
