Soul Machines created “digital human”
Soul Machines develops chatbots similar to people. They can express human feelings, since they have a "digital nervous system". If you give them a camera, chatbots will be able to analyze and understand emotions of a real person. The creators are sure that such a form will make communication between the bot and the user more natural and comfortable.
Celebrities will voice over bots to make them even more convincing. For example, a bot named Nadia was unveiled in February, it speaks with the voice of actress Cate Blanchett. Nadia's task is to answer the requests of the visitors of Australian Government websites.
Autodesk will reportedly use such bots as advisers-assistants. Management of the organization is interested in using "digital" people instead of the common bots.
