Facebook released the Blender chatbot two days ago, trained on 9.4 billion parameters. But why converse with her only with text?
Embodied interfaces have been shown to be better liked, better understood, better remembered and can be more convincing than plain text or plain voice alone.
The killer app for augmented reality is going to be about connecting with people.
Embody Digital's AI Expert app (version 2.28) now allows you to create a digital human using Facebook's Blender chatbot automatically and act out what she says. Converse and interact with her by voice. In augmented reality.
