Liquid Avatar and Aftermath Islands Launch AI-Powered Avatars
Aftermath Islands, a controlled subsidiary of Liquid Avatar, has been actively engaged in developing artificial intelligence(AI)-powered Non-Player Characters (NPCs) avatars that are subject matter experts for the metaverse.
Having completed initial development, training, and testing, AI avatars have begun to emerge in the Aftermath Islands Metaverse. A fully-interactive commercial rollout is expected in Q1 2023, which provides high fidelity graphics and a no download experience. The early-stage experience is available now at play.aftermathislands.com.
The company’s new AI avatar technology, using OpenAI GPT3 with over 175B parameters, has been primarily developed to provide commercial opportunities for brands and organizations to create virtual brand ambassadors that are easily accessible in the metaverse and leverages a brand’s existing web resources.
Highly-detailed, life-like and/or imaginative NPC avatars active in a natural looking virtual setting or in a branded location will be deployed using the trainable and interactive engagement capabilities of OpenAI GPT3 and Aftermath Islands’ continuous updating and management. These AI-powered avatars can naturally converse, initially by text and later by voice interaction with a user—allowing them to have a fulsome conversation with the AI avatar and navigate through a discussion or query on a particular subject or brand program.
The technology will also have the capabilities to recommend products and services and provide links to be able to launch an organization’s existing website, information, provide support and/or eCommerce initiatives directly from the metaverse to a user’s web browser, creating both engagement and activation opportunities for the brand seamlessly and efficiently.
“Artificial Intelligence applications like OpenAI GPT3 provide cost-effective opportunities for brands, retailers, educators, travel and tourism operators, governments, and other types of organizations to move from static based information push models to truly interactive capabilities in the metaverse, creating new and innovative ways to create awareness, engagement, activation, and conversion,” said David Lucatch, CEO of Liquid Avatar Technologies Inc. and Managing Director of Aftermath Islands Metaverse Limited. “We are already seeing strong commercial interest, as AI powered avatars can naturally interact with users and can recommend solutions that can be “clicked” within Aftermath Islands to instantly launch access to a host of web activities including eCommerce sites to support revenue-based activities, and 24/7 automated and intelligent customer service and support.”
With over 10 years in developing systems that support the use of AI, machine learning, and natural language processing for online applications, the teams at Liquid Avatar and Aftermath Islands have embraced the recent developments and opportunities with OpenAI GPT3. Aftermath Islands believes that these recent leaps in the notoriety and curiosity of AI can support the creation and acceptance of trained, autonomous-based avatars and applications that can support a variety of interactive use cases inside the metaverse. This allows users to have a more robust, engaging, and intelligent conversation with in-platform guides, and virtual brand representatives.
