The Cuntz algebra $\mathcal{O}_{\infty}$ is the universal $C^*$-algebra generated by countably infinitely many isometries $s_i$ satisfying the relations $s_i^*s_j = \delta_{ij}$ (there is no condition about the sum $\sum_i s_is_i^*$ in this case, since the sum would be infinite).

There is another way to describe this $C^*$-algebra as a subalgebra of the bounded operators on a Hilbert space as follows: Let $H$ be a separable Hilbert space of infinite dimension. Then we define the Fock space

$$ \mathcal{F}(H) = \bigoplus_{n \in \mathbb{N}_0} H^{\otimes n}\ . $$

with $H^{\otimes 0} \cong \mathbb{C}$. Any element $v \in H$ defines a creation operator $s_v(\xi) = v \otimes \xi$ and an annihilation operator $s_v^*(w \otimes \xi) = \langle v, w \rangle \xi$, which is zero on $\mathbb{C} = H^{\otimes 0} \subset \mathcal{F}(H)$. The $C^*$-algebra generated by $s_v$ and $s_v^*$ (i.e. the norm closure) is again $\mathcal{O}_{\infty}$. After choosing an orthonormal basis $e_i \in H$, we can identify $s_i = s_{e_i}$.

My question is:

Is there anything known about the von Neumann algebra generated by $\mathcal{O}_{\infty}$ in this way, i.e. the weak closure or double commutant of $\mathcal{O}_{\infty}$ in $B(\mathcal{F}(H))$? What type is it ($III_1$ or just $I_{\infty}$)?

EDIT: Are there interesting/canonical states on $\mathcal{O}_{\infty}$ such that the von Neumann algebra associated to the GNS-construction is type $III_1$?
