What role will artificial intelligence (AI) play in the emergence of different perspectives on the future digital world, known as Metaverse? Will it improve inclusion or, conversely, contribute to creating a more discriminatory digital world?
The term “metavers” is primarily used to refer to an expected future iteration of the Internet, often called Web 3.0. This evolution of the Internet should see the emergence of a 3D or virtually integrated online environment. Its users will be able to access virtual reality and augmented reality experiences. Many companies are already working to create services for this new digital world. Even tech giant Facebook has changed its name.
All of this shows that Metaverse is aiming to become the next big consumer technology. Much has been written about the role of blockchain in Metaverse. In part, this is due to the huge hype surrounding NFT. But what about the intersection of metavers and artificial intelligence or AI? Follow that few lines to talk about it.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Metaverse
AI can play a relevant role not only in the future but also in the future of Metavers From a product perspectiveBut consider How can he further incorporate Metavers.
Included user interface
One of the keys to the potential success of Metaverse Promises a highly immersive experience. It has the potential to improve social interaction. But this can be a huge obstacle People with disabilities Access to this future digital world. In addition, people with lower levels of digital skills may find themselves Outside of this new economy And social experience.
AI has to play a fundamental role Ensure everyone’s access to Metaverse. This may suggest Image recognition For the visually impaired, Automatic translation Or something Brain-computer interface for the weakest.
IAOps (Artificial Intelligence Operation System)
According to Coinbase, there must always be a platform needed to support Metavers Active and widely scalable. In such claimant situations, AIOps will play a relevant role Manage all necessary infrastructure. These include hardware, basic software and communications.
As a reminder, IAOps are “A combination of big data and machine learning To automate IT operations processes including event interaction, inconsistency detection and causation ”. This will be essential to ensure the availability of power Strength of metaverse infrastructure. It will also be used to provide information on activities relevant to the upper levels.
Advanced smart deal
Metaverse promises to allow builders and users Easily exchange digital resources and rights. This will protect the property while isolating it from large technology companies. But will this promise be fulfilled?
Such as Adidas Has launched its first NFT. Purchases are limited to 2 people per. But the sale ended in less than a second. And a single person was able to buy 330 of them in a single transaction. Is this really its future? The democratization of the Internet ? Yes, power can be taken away from big business. But in this case with software skills it doesn’t seem like it to people, just to a few.
In this case, Advanced smart contract, AI integrationThis can help in identifying the situation. Transaction-related infrastructure information This type of “undemocratic” activity can be used to trace.
AI for the immersed digital world
One of the best examples of this set of technology NVIDIA’s universal. The content that this platform offers to create a digital world and to emulate the real world is simply impressive.
From the building and Simulation of the vast world In a virtual environment for testing autonomous robots / AI to AI voice technology, NVIDIA technologies are A good example of how AI will be the key to creating digital space Where social interaction will take place in metavars.
AI as a creative partner
Recent natural language processing models have opened the door to use AI as a creative partner. It generates a Creative writing based on user input. AI can also create creative writing Realistic pictures From text descriptions or very simple drawings. In the case of technology like this Slab Where GauGAN2 From NVIDIA.
Creating the right avatar
Users are at the center of the metaverse and will determine the accuracy of your avatar Quality of experience. An artificial intelligence engine can analyze 2D user images or 3D scans To offer a very realistic simulated rendering.
She can then trace facial expressions, emotions, hairstyles and much more. For Make the avatar more dynamic. To create avatars for metavers, many companies resort to artificial intelligence, just to mention ready player m. In addition, the meta is already in its own version of the technology.
AI to improve social networks in Metaverse
One of the main purposes of Metaverse Improve the social media experienceInside Strengthening the digital self and digital personalization. If it allows each user experience to be as unique in the digital world as it is in the real world, it will grow. Challenges to inclusion and safety for minorities and children. How can AI improve social media in Metavers?
Some efforts are already in place Create a more inclusive and secure experience For minority groups on social networks. Some focus Prevent abuse and hate speech. Others focus on calculating the relevance of content for minority groups.
Here are some ideas on how AI can help create a differentiated and inclusive experience in Metaverse. We’ll see In the case of many creative uses in the future.
Challenges around AI in Metaverse
It is important to remember that Metaverse is a new field of research and exploitation. Thus, AI implementation may face problems. There may be questions about:
- Features content created by AI : Who owns the copyright and can benefit from AI-created VR content and the world?
- Deepfeck and user transparency : How do you make sure users know they’re interacting with AI and not other people? How to prevent deep counterfeiting and fraud?
- Fair use of AI and ML: Can users legally apply AI / ML technology to metaverse interactions? For example, can they use AI code to win games?
- The Right to use data for AI model training : How can we train AI for ethical metavers? What is involved in the consent process?
- Liability for AI bias : If a digital human or similar AI algorithm shows bias, is there a way?
At the end of the day, Without AI it would be difficult to create a compelling metaverse experience, Authentic and measurable. That’s why companies like Meta work closely with think tanks and ethics groups. Contains the risks of AI without limiting the potential of the technology.

Supercomputers, AI and Metavers
A super computer is a Computers with a very high level of performance. This performance surpasses any available consumer laptop or desktop. So, it can be used for Process large amounts of data And extract the basic information. These computers can perform the most complex computing operations.
The supercomputer market is expected to grow at a The compound annual growth rate from 2021 to 2026 is about 9.5%.. The growing adoption of cloud computing and cloud technology will accelerate this growth, as well as the need for systems that can adopt larger data sets to train and manage AI.
The industry has exploded in recent years, with groundbreaking achievements that have helped raise public interest. In addition, companies around the world are trying to outperform and Beyond the competition in their own supercomputer project.
At the end of January, Meta Has announced on social media that it will create an AI super computer. According to this company, it will one day The fastest super computer in the world. The purpose of this tool is to run the next generation AI algorithm. The first phase of construction has already been completed. And by the end of 2022, the second phase of work must be completed.
What does this mean for the future of AI?
Meta is a promise Its revolutionary use of supercomputers is manifold, From lightning-fast gaming to instant and simultaneous relentless translation of texts, images and videos. Think of a group of people who speak different languages at the same time and can communicate seamlessly.
It can be used for Analyze huge amounts of pictures or videos Looking for harmful content, or to detect a face in a huge crowd of people. Computers will also play an important role in the development of next generation AI models. It will power Metaverse and provide a foundation on which future Metavers technology can build.
But all these powers have an underlying meaning Serious ethical considerations for the use of meter supercomputersAnd more generally for supercomputers.
Ethics and AI
New technology is always needed Social conversations about how they should be used. Supercomputers are no different in this regard.
Although AI has solved some of the most important and complex problems in the world, there are still some flaws. These errors are not caused by the AI algorithm. They would rather Direct results of feeding data to AI systems. If the data fed into the system is biased The results of an AI calculation are bound to bear this bias.
The era of AI also brings up the key question On human privacy and the privacy of our thoughts. To address these concerns, we need to seriously consider our interaction with AI. When examining the ethical structure of AI, one must ensure that its use is transparent, explanatory, impartial, and accountable. Feel free to consult our file on human rights at Metaverse.
