Nvidia-backed startup Synthesia unveils AI avatars that can convey human emotions

UK tech startup Synthesia has unveiled a new set of AI-generated avatars that can convey emotions such as happiness, sadness and frustration.


Nvidia-backed artificial intelligence company Synthesia on Thursday unveiled a new wave of AI-generated digital avatars that can convey human emotions using a user's text input.

The company said its “emoji avatars” can blur the lines between the virtual world and real characters. It aims to eliminate cameras, microphones, actors, lengthy edits and other costs from the professional video production process. Synthesia has a studio in London, where actors read scripts in front of a green screen to train the system.
