  • While Metaverse may be a new popular concept but researchers already explored interaction design for eXtended Reality systems. Use of AI in the form of object recognition in Augmented Reality system or speech recognition in Virtual Reality systems in widespread use but not explicitly considered as examples of Intelligent User Interface. However, AI technology has potential to introduce new interaction modality like eye and hand tracking for Metaverse and similarly improve interaction experience through emotion recognition, cognitive load estimation, target prediction or introducing new accessibility features in 3D media. Recent advancement in generative AI has been explored for generating synthetic data to improve object recognition accuracy in mixed reality system and Google RT2 explored using large language model to automatically generate instructions for robot manipulation, which can be extended to industrial metaverse. The organizers of this workshop have diverse range of expertise from developing VR crew cabin for Indias maiden human space flight mission, developing subtitles for VR media, designing industrial metaverse and marketing new headsets for data collection in Metaverse. In addition, the team is also actively involved in standardization activities through ISO and ITU and the workshop will directly contribute to assemble future use cases and associated challenges in Metaverse.
