Presentation Description

Generative AI (Gen-AI) technologies have developed rapidly on both research and commercialization fronts in recent years, as seen from the rapid launch of increasingly powerful models from OpenAI, Google, Nvidia, and many other smaller startups. At the same time, VR/MR hardware industry continues to produce increasingly powerful devices at increasingly affordable prices. Combining these two technologies can advance the price-performance of both the stimulus-generation and response-evaluation aspects of training and assessment. Generative AI can also enable personalized and adaptive learning at scales and deliver outcomes approaching 1-1 expert-led tutoring and apprenticeship. However, a critical barrier is the high investment required to support a multidisciplinary skilled team of coders, artists and game designers for integrating these technologies to create and maintain training content. We posit that co-design and Gen-AI powered no-code tools are potentially a winning combination for reducing the time, cost and skill required for high quality XR content creation.
