📃Morpheus AI Primer

Today’s landscape is being transformed with rapidly developing AI technology. Morpheus have their place on this landscape and have their roadmap aligned to get to that place in time.

AI Grows Rapidly in the Digital Space

Artificial Intelligence, AI, grows rapidly and already transforming digital landscape. ChatGPT with its plugins and numerous generative AI frameworks (Stable Diffusion, Midjourney, etc.) — all them together provide powerful and very intuitively-natural means for information search, analysis, and even for creativity.

For now, the AI territory is in the digital space. But there is no doubt that the future of AI lays beyond the screen. The future of AI is in the real world. Science fiction writers and trend watchers, all promise us that is to happen. We just need to wait a bit more, and to develop a better AI.

Valuable AI Has a Purpose

Humans develop AI with a purpose. Its value is in providing help for people, supporting them in their daily life — work and leisure included. To do this properly, AI needs to connect with humans.

Human connection is an essential component for people, and we see it rather well in many areas: hospitality and care, employee engagement and growth, creative thinking and collaboration. In order to truly contribute to such areas, AI needs to see and understand people as humans and present itself to them in a humane way.

With text communication, it is already happening: complex interfaces of Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw, Blender and the ‘search creole’ language of then-Altavista, Google, Bing are being replaced with natural conversation of ChatGPT and prompt-driven visual AI-s.

Today, AI communicates and connects with human via messaging: would that be answering questions, prompting for images, or navigating in the complex analytical data.

Tomorrow, AI will connect with people in most rich and immersive way — in reality. What shape would it take? This question is for many AI tech companies to answer.

Rapidly Developing AI Needs a Playground

AI smart technology develops so quickly that hardware technology struggle to catch up in real world, same as overly smart wunderkind often struggles with basic real-world tasks. We need better displays, faster processors, smaller chips, lighter and at the same time more powerful batteries.

All this will come by in a year or two. Until then, AI needs a virtual playground to grow.

Morpheus Platform is the Virtual AI Playground

Morpheus focus on human-human connections to solve real needs of employee engagement, transformational learning and growth, creative collaboration. Our high fidelity metaverse is built to facilitate and enable those experiences.

Very soon, AI will have access to this platform, where it will be able to connect with human participants and support them by solving real tasks and answering real needs, yet in virtual space.

For example, AI will serve as a scribe and facilitator for creative brainstorming and discussions: imagine a smart whiteboard, that summarises discussion in Post-its, arrange them and regroups while you and your colleagues playing around with the ideas.

For example, AI will serve as a guide for employee onboarding: imagine a ‘brand ambassador’ that not only presents you the history of the company but also answers your questions and — most importantly — enacts the company values.

For example, AI will serve as an immersive therapist: imagine a captivating, out-of-the-world environment that gives you prompts for self-reflection and reacts on your story, providing you with rich, captivating and interactive experience that leads to personal transformation.

These are just a few examples that illustrate what human connection can do for AI. And what AI can do for human connection.

Imagine all of this in the real world: with real whiteboards, real brand avatars, real ‘transformation rooms’. This is the future. The future we build today.

Morpheus Platform to Breath Life into Metaverse

Today, we create a platform that allows AI technology integrate in the interactive virtual reality where humans connect. We open API and provide SDK for AI companies so they can use our platform to train, demonstrate, and apply their AI technology to solve real human needs. Today.

On the platform, third-party AI providers will be able to embed their AI into everything what is there: in avatars, in worlds, in things.

There is always a conversation of making things ‘smarter’. But what we see, being just ‘smart’ is not enough. We, humans, need smart things that feel ‘alive’. Then we connect with them.

It Is not Artificial Intelligence We Crave, but Artificial Life

Our vision for the platform is not to just smarten things but to breathe life in them.

We don’t need smart things, we need things animated. As having an anima, a spirit that lives inside them.

Thus each of the things on our platform can be given a ‘spirit’ that drives its interactive behaviour, provides with autonomous intent and memory, personalises for context. Everything that makes things alive.

After all, what is an AI-powered smart thing if not a ‘smart ghost’ inside an empty shell of an ordinary thing?

Next to just embedding AI spirits, the platform allows third-party developers to build complex inter-AI interactions, as those AI-s will operate in shared and consistent world. That makes Morpheus platform a true playground for the complex AI ecosystem that is growing right before our amazed eyes.

Before AI will run things in the real world-to-come, it needs to make baby steps in the virtual one that already exists.
