- 1 AI has the capacity to fill virtual worlds with loads of content regardless of sector.
- 2 Data shows there are nearly 400 Million monthly active users (MAUs) in the metaverse.
Rising use cases in the metaverse and artificial intelligence (AI) are opening up new windows to different sectors. Defense News, a political and news provider, reported that the German military is leveraging the technologies to enhance their capabilities. GhostPlay, an endeavor for AI-based decision making, is providing them with necessary apparatus to examine different aspects of their systems.
Metaverse And AI Could Be a Deadly Combination
GhostPlay uses military simulation to identify potential shortcomings. Moreover, it employs self learning artificial intelligence at its heart. The German Defense Ministry funded the project to galvanize the research sector into action. GhostPlay programmers claim to have created digital twins of would-be battlefields.
CEO of a German AI manufacturer involved with the metaverse endeavor 21strategies, Yvonne Hofstetter, explained the potential of the initiative to Defense News. She said, “If the assignment were to recreate Lithuania for a simulation, coders would fan out to copy the environment “down to the last leaf” using satellite photos and local authorities’ databases on everything from housing, infrastructure and vegetation.”
Defense News also mentioned that researchers have begun implementing the project’s idea of AI decision making to existing military equipment. AI decision making can enhance hit rate and consequently the chances of survival, as explained with reference to Germany’s Flakpanzer Gepard, a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun.
The Gepard fleet is reportedly accumulating dust in Germany. The nation sent 46 from the cluster to war-torn Ukraine. It can mirror actions of enemy weapons according to Defense News with Hofstetter adding that, “There is enough info … kind of scary, really.”
AI is Ahead of the Metaverse In Terms of Adoption
Artificial intelligence and metaverse integration could unfurl new possibilities for several industries. AI has the capacity to fill virtual worlds with loads of content. Extensive usage of generative AI over the past year has shown that even small amounts of data can produce a large variety of unique content.
The Ohio State team is training first responders for extreme events using the metaverse, the state’s independent newspaper The Lantern reported. A simulated environment can upskill them to deliver life-saving aid. In October 2022, the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) entered the metaverse.
In July 2023, Will Knight of American magazine Wired reported on the naval forces’ use of artificial intelligence. Knight highlighted the US Navy’s (Task Force 59) usage of AI and robotics, technologies that can change the face of battle.
There are nearly 400 Million monthly active users (MAUs) in the metaverse. Notably, a better part of this population is underaged. AI, in contrast, is way ahead with nearly 77 percent of devices equipped with artificial intelligence. Big tech companies including Microsoft, Meta Platforms, Google and more are coming up with a range of AI solutions.
