While humanoid service robots are still somewhat rare, NVIDIA’s Omniverse Avatar is a platform to generate interactive AI avatars. It connects the company’s speech, computer vision, natural language processing, recommendation engines, and simulation technologies.
NVIDIA claimed that Avatar can be tailored to any customer-service application, such as taking restaurant orders, banking transactions, and making personal appointments.
“The dawn of intelligent virtual assistants has arrived,” said Jenson Huang. “The use cases of collaborative robots and virtual assistants are incredible and far-reaching.”
NVIDIA’s CEO demonstrated Avatar examples at GTC, including Project Tokkio for customer support, DRIVE Concierge for connected vehicles and automated parking, and Project Maxine for videoconferencing.
For Project Tokkio, Huang showed a real-time conversation with an avatar designed to look like a toy of himself.Return to article.
