Synthetic Reality: How Artificial Intelligence will Shape the Metaverse and Everything in It - Matt White, Berkeley Synthetic

In the Metaverse AI will dominate, whether used for autonomous AI agents, animating characters, building synthetic avatars and objects, instantly transferring the style of objects, synthesizing physics and natural phenomena or creating digital assets and virtual worlds simply from text descriptions. The use cases are nearly limitless and will continue to grow as neural methods continue to rapidly evolve. But what are the implications of AI in The Metaverse? Will it create a power imbalance? Will it fuel the creator economy? Can AI be used to protect privacy, security and safety in the Metaverse? Will toxic behavior be amplified through AI? How can we use AI in The Metaverse for good? This session will touch on the applications of AI in the Metaverse including the use of generative deep learning and deep reinforcement learning as well as conventional discriminatory deep learning. It will also touch on the potential ethical and legal issues along with the business opportunities for those who embrace AI in The Metaverse.
