Nvidia unveils AI Omniverse Avatar platform

Can by used by any industry

Nvidia has introduced Omniverse Avatar, a new platform for generating immersive AI-driven avatars.

The platform combines multiple technologies, including speech recognition, synthetic speech, facial tracking, and 3D avatar animation, to create avatars that recognize speech and can efficiently communicate with other users.

During a presentation at the company’s GTC conference, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang showed off demos using Omniverse Avatar tech. In one of the demos, a cute animated character helps a couple decide what they want to order in a restaurant. The character uses facial-tracking technology to keep eye contact with the customers and accurately respond to their facial expressions.

“The dawn of intelligent virtual assistants has arrived,” said Jensen Huang, founder, and CEO of NVIDIA. “Omniverse Avatar combines NVIDIA’s foundational graphics, simulation, and AI technologies to make some of the most complex real-time applications ever created. The use cases of collaborative robots and virtual assistants are incredible and far-reaching.”
