Role of AI in the Metaverse: Everything You Need to Know
AI can assist in breaking down natural languages such as English, converting it to a machine-readable format, performing analysis, arriving at a response, converting the results back into English, and sending it to the user.
Fremont, CA: AI applications are now much more common than you might think. According to a recent McKinsey survey, half of the respondents said their companies use AI for at least one business function. According to a recent report, 40 percent of enterprises have an organization-wide AI strategy in place.
AI is now playing a significant role in consumer-facing applications as well, through facial recognition, natural language processing (NLP), faster computing, and a variety of other under-the-hood processes.
It was only a matter of time before artificial intelligence was applied to augmented and virtual reality to create smarter immersive worlds.
AI has the potential to parse massive amounts of data at breakneck speed in order to generate insights and drive action. Users can either use AI to make decisions or combine AI with automation for low-touch processes.
Below listed are key AI applications in the Metaverse.
Language processing is one of the most common applications of AI in digital humans.
AI can assist in breaking down natural languages such as English, converting it to a machine-readable format, performing analysis, arriving at a response, converting the results back into English, and sending it to the user. This entire process takes only a fraction of a second, just like a real conversation.
The best part is that, depending on the AI's training, the results could be converted into any language, allowing users from all over the world to access the metaverse.
VR World Expansion
This is where artificial intelligence truly shines. When an AI engine is fed historical data, it learns from previous results and attempts to generate its own.
With new input, human feedback, and machine learning reinforcement, AI output will improve over time.
Eventually, AI will be able to perform the task and produce results nearly as well as humans. AI is being trained by companies such as NVIDIA to create entire virtual worlds.
This breakthrough will be critical in driving metaverse scalability, as new worlds can be added without the intervention of humans.
Users are at the heart of the metaverse, and the accuracy of your avatar determines the quality of experience for you and other participants. An artificial intelligence engine can analyze 2D user images or 3D scans to create a highly realistic simulated rendition.
It can then plot a variety of facial expressions, emotions, hairstyles, aging-related features, and so on to make the avatar more dynamic.
AI is already being used by companies such as Ready Player Me to assist in the creation of avatars for the metaverse, and Meta is developing its own version of the technology.
