AI learns to create digital twins for metaverses

A new example of the incredible bundle of XR and artificial intelligence!

In early May, China's famous Yingxian Pagoda, the tallest wooden pagoda in the world, got a digital twin. And the AI created it in just 10 hours.

If such a structure had been modeled by 3D artists, the work would have dragged on for many months. Imagine, an ancient temple 66 meters high, and it is almost 23 floors, with a unique and very complex architecture.

Now the ancient monument can be studied in all details in XR helmets, you can “climb” to the very top and see the features of the unique design. The fact that the original pagoda, built back in 1056, is now very dilapidated and visitors are not allowed above the second floor.

So how was the digital twin born?

It sounds pretty simple: using drones, detailed photography was taken, then the AI analyzed this data and created a three-dimensional model, restoring the lost fragments.

The Global Times writes about all the nuances of the reconstruction

Of course, to afford drones to scan a giant building can still afford mostly companies of the Lenovo class, which was responsible for the technological support of this project. But already now there are more and more AI networks that make quite decent 3D models based on descriptions and images. This means that very soon each of us will be able to become a professional reconstructor and place our works in XR-space. And on the Arcona lands there will always be a place for your experiments.
