    Abstract:
    As the most significant entertainment industry by far, online games provide many of the most immersive experiences and are perceived as entrance points to the Metaverse. As the virtual worlds become more social and personalized, the need for human-centered AI to understand and model how humans make decisions in games grows. This thesis proposal introduces human-centered recommender systems in games that expand on three scales. We present social scenarios in microscale teams, mesoscale communities, and macroscale crowds. We also show the efficacies of small, heterogeneous, and multimodal data. The applications on the three scales are generalizable toward broader shopping, social, and content recommendations.
