Peter and Dan explore the technology of AI avatars. Diving into a fun conversation about intelligent digital humans that are now surfacing in certain industries, Peter and Dan envision how these AI avatars might also influence human interactions in business.
In this episode:
- Peter talks about his experiments with three companies he’s excited about in the AI avatar space, namely LifeKind, HourOne, and Futureloop. Having fed his own blogs, books and podcast episodes into such AIs as training data, Peter talks about the successes of these experiments, which have surprised him with extraordinarily lifelike audio and visuals.
- Dan talks about how the pandemic and its accompanying work-from-home Zoom culture will accelerate people’s willingness to use and interact with virtual avatars, particularly as meetings continue to remain virtual.
- Peter and Dan discuss AI avatars used in filmmaking, and how these might serve to immortalize deceased actors and singers. For instance, digital avatars with the likeness of Marilyn Monroe or Elvis Presley could one day even converse with live audiences.
