Description

We often think of mixed reality as blurring the lines between reality and fiction - and do that effectively, developers have long battled to make virtual and augmented worlds more realistic and immersive. Significant progress has been made in displays, haptics, motion tracking, and graphics, but what role does generative AI have to play? And how can developers leverage AI to unlock a new frontier in mixed reality?

AI-driven characters will pave the way for new forms of entertainment, education, and communication. Join Inworld and our partners Niantic and Liquid City in a discussion on developing mixed reality experiences with intelligent characters.

Description

In this thought provoking talk we follow the story of John Henry, a character known for his incredible strength and stamina, as he competes against a steam drill powered by artificial intelligence in a high-stakes race to build AI powered XR applications, platforms and even reshape society.

Together we probe critical questions on AI generation of art, music, code, and more.

1. How do these AI tools affect XR creation?
2. What new kinds of applications and services do AI tools unlock?
3. How does AI support new opportunities to scale?
4. What are new kinds of AI enabled business models?
5. What concerns should we have about the rapid deployment of AI to change society?

ChatGPT, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, DALL-E, Copilot, Lensa, and 3D XR Asset Creation are just the beginning.

Will AI eat our reality?

Join us as we consider the age-old question of what happens when technology surpasses humanity's abilities in the race to build a new XR reality and how it fundamentally changes our existing one.
