AI-augmented 3D Visualization in the Metaverse via Scientific Virtual Observatories
This presentation will showcase work conducted by Virtual Harmony in the prototyping of AI-augmented 3D visualization in the metaverse for supporting interdisciplinary endeavors with cognitive sciences across education, industry, and the military. Highlights will be showcased from efforts with developing and using an AI strategy and concepts virtual observatory hub offering a learning neural net supporting metaverse AI-augmented client-server visualization tool for visualization of data collected from interactive learning simulations.
