    "Sylvie is as smart and clever as you make her"

    June 1, 2011  |  

    Pros

    the Verbots are extremely flexible and relatively easy to script. With clever scripting you can make an awesomely intelligent conversation agent.

    Cons

    The animation needs updating and it would be nice to have the ability to have her interface with the outside world.

    Summary

    I've taken Verbots all over the world to demonstrate what a virtual human interface might be like. Ray Kurzweil took Verbots with him on his book tour for The Age of Spiritual Machines. People were amazed. Don't sell Sylvie short because you didn't put in the time to make her as smart as you need her to be.
