Method and System for Facilitating Fast Collaborative Engagement of Users using Augmented Reality (AR)

In general, collaboration techniques enable multiple users to connect and solve problems, which often divides complex problems for providing solutions. Finding right collaboration at the right time is an opportunistic task. In physical environments, the problem gets even severe when deciding whom to approach, where to spend time to maximize results and how to connect with other users. So there exists a need for a method and system that facilitates fast collaborative engagement of users.

Disclosed is a method and system for facilitating fast collaborative engagement of users using Augmented Reality (AR). The method and system augments a user’s view to quickly engage in collaboration by detecting needs of the user to collaborate similar users on a given topic. Alternatively, the method and system collaborates the users by identifying the users within a predetermined geographic location. Further, the users are engaged in collaboration for the given topic by aggregating the user’s interests and skills and overlaying the interests and skills on the AR.

In a scenario, a user indicates a need for assistance in cooking sausages by providing a haptic, visual, audio or emotion based feedback such as, but not limited to, shaking the hand, scratching the head, clicking the help button. On detecting the feedback received from the user, the method and system retrieves the user’s location and meta- information such as, but not limited to, age, gender and location. The scope of the user’s query can be spread to a predetermined surrounding area, which can be, but need not be limited to, 100 feet indoors, 1000 feet outdoors, minimum number of collaborators in the user’s view through the AR device and the like. Subsequently, the user checks the surrounding data based on prior searches, topics of discussion for determining interested areas as cooking and stocks. The method and system, then, analyzes the user’s check-in data for th...
