Photoreal REaltime Sentient ENTity

Project description

Welcome to the next generation of virtual assistants

Our relationship with virtual entities is deepening. Already, we are using technologies like Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant to aid in day-to-day tasks. The EU-funded PRESENT project will develop a virtual digital companion, which will not only sound human but also look natural, demonstrate emotional sensitivity, and establish meaningful dialogue. Advances in photorealistic computer-generated characters, combined with emotion recognition and behaviour, and natural language technologies, will allow these virtual agents to not only look realistic but respond like a human. The project will demonstrate a set of practical tools, a pipeline and an application programming interface.
