Animated speaking #chatbot talking to each other, #avatar #virtualagent #virtualassistant #ai #singularity
This video shows two animated speaking chatbots talking to other. I don’t know the creator nor something about the technology used for AI components, speech technology or avatar animation. I assume that the dialogue is a text to text interaction and that the speech is synthesized (i.e. the speech itself of the other chatterbot is not interpreted).
ASR (Automated Speech Recognition) is definitely the next step. I’m waiting for it!
FIONA, the new global platform to create Intelligent Virtual Avatars, will be launched soon.

FIONA (Framework for Interactive-services Over Natural-conversational Agents) is a global online platform for the creation of Intelligent and Interactive Virtual Avatars.
FIONA’s first beta version is going to be launched soon and we are searching for beta testers. If you work on human computer interaction and artificial intelligence, you are 3D Designer, you have TTS or ASR modules, or you create virtual agents, you can become a beta tester.
