Nvidia Sees a Metaverse Populated With Lifelike Chatbot Avatars

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

On Tuesday, the chip giant unveiled its Avatar Cloud Engine, a tool for building 3D models of speaking humans that Nvidia hopes will be the way we interact with computers and, perhaps, with other people in the metaverse.

The tool draws on Nvidia’s experience with 3D graphics and artificial intelligence technology 0, which has revolutionized how computers understand and communicate with natural language. Company Chief Executive Jensen Huang unveiled ACE in conjunction with the Siggraph computer graphics conference in Vancouver.

Advanced avatars such as those ACE could make possible are the next step in computer interaction. In the 3D digital realms that metaverse advocates like Meta and Nvidia hope we’ll all inhabit, a human-looking face could help us manage our investments, tour an apartment building or learn how to knit.
