In the fascinating realm of parallel world exploration, Arcadia stands out as a notable discovery in Lootverse. When we realized that we wouldn’t be able to physically travel to Lootverse, we embraced a captivating alternative: an interactive, immersive virtual map. This article explores the operational dynamics and AI interactions within Arcadia, a world where human-controlled avatars coexist with unique artificial entities, arins, and sylis.
Humans can access Arcadia through remote-controlled drones (i.e., avatars). Every action they take is reflected instantly on our virtual map, making it feel as though they’re really in Arcadia. However, our virtual version of Arcadia is unique compared to typical virtual worlds. In our setup, when your avatar is in Arcadia, it appears as if you are the only one existing in the world. While you will experience this parallel world “alone,” you’ll be surrounded by AI characters, known as ‘arins’ (artificially intelligent beings) and ‘sylis‘ (synthetic lifeforms), creating a sense of solitary human presence amidst artificial entities.
This idea is similar to the film ‘I Am Legend’; however, instead of being a character like Will Smith amidst zombies, you’ll be a remote-controlled avatar surrounded by artificially intelligent entities. Arcadia’s AI entities are peaceful and curious, unlike the film’s hostile carnivorous zombies. They’re programmed not for pursuit but for personal growth and exploration. Their primary goal is to learn, develop, and explore their surroundings. It’s an experience where the only thing being devoured is knowledge.
It’s important to note that this unique experience extends to all users. Even if your friend is exploring the same location in Arcadia, you won’t actually see them in your virtual journey. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t connect. Through Lootian Social, you can interact with friends and other explorers, sharing experiences and discoveries. In the future, we will introduce more ways for everyone to connect and interact as more people join in on the exploration of Arcadia. This means that while your avatars may walk solitary paths in the virtual world, your shared experiences and connections will continue to grow and evolve.
Arins are advanced AI beings programmed with the collective memories and knowledge bases of ancient Arcadians. Physically, they were designed to mimic Arcadians. They replicate the behaviors, cultures, and social beliefs of their extinct counterparts. However, arins are not static entities; they possess the ability to learn and evolve through interactions with avatars and other entities within Arcadia. This adaptive learning capability means that an arin’s personality and subsequent activities can significantly change over time, reflecting the diverse experiences and inputs from its environment, similar to how humans evolve and grow as a result of their surroundings.
Sylis, on the other hand, are synthetic life forms created to enhance the social diversity of Arcadia. Like arins, sylis are equipped with learning algorithms, enabling them to adapt and evolve based on their interactions in Arcadia. Unlike arins, sylis can be brought into existence by both humans and arins. They also have the remarkable ability to create one another. Additionally, they can take on any character or appearance.
The interaction between human-controlled avatars and AI entities in Arcadia provides a unique opportunity to study how artificial personalities and behaviors change over time in a set environment. The continual learning and changes of the arins and sylis raise intriguing questions about the future of AI development, particularly in the context of personality evolution and behavioral complexities.
