At Synergiz, we firmly believe in the crucial role that artificial intelligence plays in advancing the use of XR, particularly Mixed Reality. We are equally convinced of the importance of Mixed Reality as a medium for delivering artificial intelligence.
Mixed Reality combines the virtual and real worlds to create interactive and immersive experiences, so how can artificial intelligence significantly contribute to its evolution?
Natural Interaction: Artificial intelligence facilitates the recognition and interpretation of user gestures, facial expressions, and voice. This capability enables more natural and intuitive interactions with virtual elements in the real environment.
Tracking and Detection: Regardless of the mixed reality application used, precise tracking of the user’s position and movements, as well as objects in the real environment, is essential. AI can be used to develop tracking and detection algorithms, thus improving the quality of the user experience (this also applies to augmented reality applications).
Object and Environment Recognition: AI can be employed for object and location recognition in the real world. This allows mixed reality to better understand the physical environment and overlay virtual elements in an even more realistic manner. For example, AI can recognize equipment (furniture, machinery, etc.) in a room and place virtual objects accordingly.
Real-Time Translation: AI is increasingly used for real-time translation, which is a game-changer in communication between people from different countries. AI can translate user speech into different languages in real time – a dream come true for many.
Automatic Assistance: Mixed reality applications can integrate AI-powered intelligent agents to provide real-time assistance. For example, a virtual agent can assist a technician in performing a repair by providing visual instructions or displaying relevant information.
Training: AI can be used to create highly realistic simulations for training purposes. AI models can simulate the behavior of various virtual elements and react based on user actions.
Real-Time Data Analysis: In mixed reality and augmented reality applications, AI can collect and analyze real-time data, enabling decisions based on contextual information. For instance, in the medical field, a mixed reality solution can monitor a patient’s vital signs and alert medical staff in case of anomalies.
In addition, regardless of its form, it is essential to remember that AI is primarily a data generator. The challenge always arises of delivering this data to users so they can harness its full potential: providing useful information at the right time, in the right place, and in the right format. In this regard, Mixed Reality is a particularly suitable medium for delivering this value to field operators. Information is delivered in an intuitive and contextualized manner within the user’s real work environment. It is fully integrated into professional practices – an undeniable guarantee of efficiency and added value!
Artificial intelligence plays a decisive role in the development of Mixed Reality applications. It enhances user interaction, improves understanding of the real environment, further personalizes experiences, facilitates business data comprehension, and enables the creation of high-value scenarios for users. It opens up numerous possibilities for creating innovative experiences fully integrated into business processes, with a proven return on investment, across various sectors, from education and training to healthcare, industry, and culture.
