Microsoft went ahead with a patent to create chatbots that could mimic the personality of a specific person. The tech giant received patent clearance earlier this month after initially applying for a license in 2017.
Microsoft’s goal is to create artificial intelligence generated from individual personalities, dead or alive, from social media data, email messages, and other forms of personal information. The company plans to use images and video data to make their avatars more realistic.
Several start-ups are already working on a technology capable of creating 3D holograms.
“Our software allows simultaneous capture of multiple people in different locations in real time,” said Javier Bello, Founder and CEO of Imverse. “This capture can be incorporated into games, teleconferencing applications, educational platforms, which are built with standard 3D content creation software.”
