Embody Digital’s AI platform now works with any Android device and a Google Sheets spreadsheet. Enter the questions and answers for your expert to answer on the spreadsheet and the avatar will talk, gesture and speak your answers automatically. Create any avatar that you want using only a selfie or a picture or someone else.
You can add expressions, emotions and mood to your AI-driven character by tagging the answers. For example you can add:
[happy] I'm glad to help you! [sad] I'm very sorry to hear that. That's a great idea [sarcastic] not!
Dr. Peter Scott Morgan, like Stephen Hawking, has ‘terminal’ motor neuron disease (MND) and will soon be unable to speak or respond physically to others. But he had his voice cloned into a synthetic text-to-speech voice, and his face scanned to produce a 3D digital likeness of himself. And now, using the same assistive technology system that Stephen Hawking used, will be able to engage in conversation through text and power his avatar with emotion and expression through Embody Digital’s automated performance system that animates the head, face and lips from simple text and emotion tags
Peter describes this as part of becoming ‘Peter 2.0’, and is an ongoing project with numerous collaborators, including Cereproc, Intel and others.

Hanson Robotics collaborated with Embody Digital to integrate the Hanson AI conversational platform and custom-designed animations with Embody’s patented automated performance system, to enable Hanson robots to automatically instantiate naturalistic arm gestures based on the content and emotional tone of their utterances. The integration advances Hanson robots’ communication skills, bringing them a step closer to the way humans communicate with each other nonverbally.

A quote from Judge Andy Kelm:
“We found that Embody Digital stood out among a very competitive group of technology-oriented entrants. Not only is the Embody technology novel and innovative, but we also found it to be extremely timely given the significant interest and investment going into AR and VR. We see a wide range of commercial options from skins & emotes in gaming platforms to B2B opportunities like Amazon Sumerian, and we look forward to seeing what the Embody Digital team does next.”
