Artificial Intelligence and the Metaverse

Artificial Intelligence and the Metaverse

The Metaverse is a hot topic right now. With Meta (previously known as Facebook) announcing the Metaverse, a virtual reality world where users can interact, play games, build things just as you would in the real world. Users will have the ability to interact with 3D digital objects and virtual avatars.

The Metaverse will use augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) along with artificial intelligence and blockchains to create this virtual world. Meta has been well recognised for their work in artificial intelligence and algorithms, within platforms such as Instagram and more.

For those of you who don’t know, Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of a computer or a computer-controlled robot to perform tasks that are usually done by humans as they require human intelligence.

Metaverse’s AI research and usage include content analysis, supervised speech processing, computer vision, and much more.

So how is the Metaverse using AI?

One of the most interesting and spoken about concepts of the Metaverse is Avatars. People are creative and love the thought of designing themselves in a virtual world. They can change their hair colour, style of clothing to their preference.

AI has the ability to analyse 2D user images or 3D scans to create very realistic and accurate Avatars. Companies such as Ready Player Me have already actively been using AI to help build Avatars for the Metaverse.
