GUESTXR in a nutshell

Creating a new machine learning agent addressing conflicts and unlocking interaction in extended reality environments

About the project

The GuestXR project aims to create an immersive online social space through extended reality, where the focus is on the existence of a machine learning agent called “The Guest”, which can facilitate interaction between participants to help them achieve their intended goals.

The innovation seeks to help avert conflicts and cyberbullying in digital interaction environments, make it easier for people with communication problems to get involved and detect antisocial behaviour, among other similar issues.

The Guest

A machine learning agent called “The Guest” is to be created to analyse the individual and social behaviour of the participants based on existing theoretical models from the point of view of neuroscience and social psychology.

“The Guest” will be trained to facilitate different types of social interaction, including situations that may involve conflict, with participants with hearing impairments or that involve changing attitudes towards controversial topics.
