A Metaverse: taxonomy, components, applications, and open challenges

Sang-Min Park, Young-Gab Kim
2022 IEEE Access  
Finally, we summarize the limitations and directions for implementing the immersive Metaverse as social influences, constraints, and open challenges.  ...  The integration of enhanced social activities and neural-net methods requires a new definition of Metaverse suitable for the present, different from the previous Metaverse.  ...  The conversation is a direct method of communication with other avatars and giving instructions to NPCs in Metaverse.  ...

Money and Trust in Metaverses, Bitcoin and Stablecoins in global social XR [article]

John Joseph O'Hare, Allen Fairchild, Umran Ali
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Bitcoin is selected as the best contender for value transfer in metaverses because of it's free and open source nature, and network effect. Challenges and risks of this approach are identified.  ...  Suitable components of the extended Bitcoin ecosystem are described in more depth. Other mechanisms for native digital value transfer are described, with a focus on 'money'.  ...  The choices we made here guided us toward the selection of free and open source metaverse software, which we selected from a bunch that we reviewed.  ...

Technologies for Multimodal Interaction in Extended Reality—A Scoping Review

Ismo Rakkolainen, Ahmed Farooq, Jari Kangas, Jaakko Hakulinen, Jussi Rantala, Markku Turunen, Roope Raisamo
2021 Multimodal Technologies and Interaction  
The review aimed to help XR practitioners to apply multimodal interaction techniques and interaction researchers to direct future efforts towards relevant issues on multimodal XR.  ...  Our purpose was to provide a succinct, yet clear, insightful, and structured overview of emerging, underused multimodal technologies beyond standard video and audio for XR interaction, and to find research  ...  After an analysis of text words contained in the title, abstract, or index terms, we manually selected potentially interesting papers for further review.  ...

Renegotiation of Self after a Brain Injury Using Immersive Virtual Environments [article]

Ulla Konnerup
2015 The PhD Series of the Faculty of the Humanities  
The present research is a case study involving data collected through two pilot courses in an immersive virtual environment: Second Life.  ...  Social and cultural activities and specific training practices, such as naming, categorization, selection, orientation and spatial activities have been shown to be suitable for avatar-mediated training  ...  Interactive boards with letters, words, and sentences read aloud give Peter an opportunity to train for hours.  ...

Fighting 'Stance'

William Yasha Breslove
This study builds on the work of researchers in stance-based analysis of gaming discourse (Sierra 2016), multimodality (Collister 2012), and language acquisition (Bakos 2018).  ...  For researchers, the study of video game players - how they behave, interact, and cooperate in a virtual world – presents a challenge: what methodologies are best suited to approaching these interactions  ...  This concept of analysis through an ethnomethodological understanding of a game's world and limiters provides fertile ground for discourse analysis in gaming interactions.  ...

Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 11, Issue 5, May 2021, Complete Issue [article]

While protocols for blind and verifiable quantum computation exist, they suffer from high overheads and from oversensitivity: When running on noisy devices, imperfections trigger the same detection mechanisms  ...  In this talk we will discuss recent results on the power of random quantum circuits, inspired by the "quantum supremacy" experiments of Google and USTC.  ...  Towards better facilitating these interactions, autonomous vehicles can benefit from multimodal interaction, the use of different (and often multiple) human sensory modalities.  ...
