This includes an AI component that understands language and a 3D model that mimics an actual human. Using algorithms and natural language processing (NLP), the Avatar is given a voice that sounds more human-like, making it capable of expressing emotions and empathy. In addition, these avatars can communicate in various languages and dialects, making them a good option for businesses or corporations that operate globally.
