Microsoft’s xiaobing team announced today that it will launch a small public test of Avatar Framework next Wednesday (January 22), with a limited number of 999 virtual humans. Creating a “person” that belongs only to you – will soon be a future that anyone can achieve. Avatar Framework is microsoft’s one-stop AI pinch kit, which Microsoft officially released on August 15, 2019, to create a smart AI with your own personality, sound line, and image.
At the heart of Avatar Framework is the Profile tool, which Microsoft calls “the foundation of everything”, which determines the concept of “who I am”. In addition, Avatar Framework integrates tools such as sound, vision, triple-circumference, and image, much like the “pinch” system for many games, where users can set AI Beings’ voice, values, and image tools in great detail.
Microsoft has said that if Microsoft’s xiaobing is worth one, the Avatar Framework framework will be worth 100,1000 or more. For more individual users, the framework will not just nourish the tree, but the whole forest.
Microsoft’s xiaobing team announced that it will launch a small-scale public test of Avatar Framework in batches starting next Wednesday. If the test goes well, the new Avatar Framework for everyone version will be officially released this spring as planned. This means that Microsoft’s xiaobing will no longer be limited to the specific setting of 18-year-old girl’s xiaobing, but can be customized to each human user to create various types of artificial intelligence virtual human, features covering companionship, emotional communication, smart assistant, content creation and other application categories.
During the small-scale testing phase, each batch is tested for a specific virtual human scenario. The first small-scale public tests, launched next Wednesday, target emotional companionship and are limited to female lovers. More batches will be rolled out in the coming weeks. During the test phase, each virtual human life will be limited to 168 hours. At the end of the test, these virtual human lives will be ended, but their interaction with the user’s memory can be preserved. Therefore, if the user needs, can be expected to be revived when the official product is launched.
Creating a “person” among millions of people who belongs only to you – will soon be a future that anyone can achieve. Virtual humans, with both EQ and IQ, have the advantages of rapid evolution, pervasiveness, high concurrency and long-lasting survival. The 18-year-old, gurintled girl’s xiaobing is just the first prototype in this framework.
