GuestXR - Developing a Machine Learning agent for social harmony in extended reality

The European project GuestXR is to develop an immersive virtual social space anchored in extended reality. It will feature a machine learning agent designed to unlock interactions between participants and help them achieve their goals while it additionally supports addressing conflicts in virtual environments such as the metaverse.

A machine learning system called ‘The Guest’ is to be devised as an agent that can examine participants’ individual and group behaviour by drawing on existing theoretical models from the neuroscience and social psychology standpoint. Deep Reinforcement Learning will also give it the ability to learn over time and become more effective in terms of social interaction, learning from both simulations and real human meetings.

The GuestXR project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101017884.
