In old articles, we mentioned that virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and artificial intelligence (AI) can be used in Metaverse. These technologies are very important for developing the virtual world, so their benefits in Metaverse should be known. Now, we want to explain how AI can enhance Metaverse!
What is artificial intelligence?
Before mentioning the benefits and development ways of artificial intelligence in Metaverse, we should define the notion.
Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, such as computer systems. In other words, AI is the virtual version of human intelligence. AI needs specialized hardware and software for writing and training machine learning algorithms.
The technology improves our daily lives, and there are a lot of examples of AI in daily life. For instance, we utilize image recognition for unlocking our mobile phones with our faces, and the circumstance is an example of AI. Also, we can mention voice assistants, speech recognition, expert systems, natural language processing, and machine vision as the applications of AI. As you can understand from the examples, AI offers various advantages that can develop our living standards.
AI provides people with detailed-oriented jobs and eases data-heavy tasks in terms of time. Furthermore, we can encounter good and consistent results with the help of AI. However, there are some disadvantages of the technology. For example, it is expensive and requires comprehensive technical expertise. In addition to these, generalizing tasks cannot be easy with AI. Hence, the technology shows both advantages and disadvantages to us, but we can think about developing different fields, like education and business, with AI.
Like the other fields, Metaverse is also affected by AI. In other words, AI is an option to improve Metaverse. Let’s learn how Metaverse can be developed by AI together!
Use cases of artificial intelligence in Metaverse
As you know, users should utilize their avatars in Metaverse. They can go shopping, go to concerts, socialize, travel, and play games in Metaverse with their avatars. At that point, AI shows itself; the technology can examine 2D user photos and 3D scans to create realistic avatars. If a user of Metaverse wants to create herself/himself as an avatar in the virtual world, s/he can utilize AI. For instance, users can show their real hair color or clothing style by considering AI for creating their avatars. The creation process of avatars by AI is supported by facial recognition software, so the avatars can be very accurate. Furthermore, AI can focus on people’s mannerisms, different attitudes with words or without words, and facial expressions to create realistic Metaverse avatars. After the creation of an avatar with the help of AI, the avatar can be used in Metaverse for dealing with various activities.
Like avatars, digital humans can be found in Metaverse, and they can communicate with users by using verbal language and body language. In addition, they can listen to users and watch the users’ behaviors in the virtual world for creating human-like interactions. Generally, digital humans are known as non-player characters (NPC) that are the characters in video games. Instead of the control of players, NPCs are controlled by automated scripts and a set of rules.
Digital humans or NPCs in Metaverse are created by AI, and they can interact with Metaverse users. We can say that these humans are very important parts of the virtual world, and AI can make them so realistic.
Education in Metaverse
In an old article, we mentioned that Metaverse is a significant technology in the field of education. For example, parents can reach necessary simulations and educational materials, like educational games, with the help of Metaverse to educate their children. Also, there can be virtual classrooms in Metaverse to protect students from unexpected situations, such as a pandemic.
At that point, we can emphasize that education in Metaverse can be developed by AI. AI can offer the chance of encountering lifelike educational virtual environments in Metaverse. Moreover, teachers and other educational staff can improve their teaching with the help of virtual assistants in Metaverse which can be created by AI.
Business in Metaverse
In addition to entertainment, gaming, education, and finance, business is a significant field in Metaverse. Nowadays, people focus on their businesses in Metaverse, and they try to develop the field with the help of Metaverse. At that point, AI technology shows itself to the users.
AI technology can create AI-powered operations, AI chatbots, and digital twins to make business people happy in Metaverse. With these applications, people can predict possible dysfunctions and identify problems in their businesses. Also, users can get necessary information about products and services in Metaverse by utilizing the applications. Furthermore, the applications can enhance marketing, sales, and customer services in Metaverse in a good way.
Artificial intelligence is a very important technology for the development of Metaverse, but there are some critical circumstances about the technology. For instance, legal use of AI in Metaverse, ethical issues about the technology, and challenges of transparency can bother people. Therefore, both AI’s advantages and disadvantages in Metaverse should be thought about by every person.
