We love people. We love artificial people too. Or chatterbots, or intelligent machines – whatever you want to call them, we prefer: conversational characters. This is Merly the Mersquid (not to be mistaken for a mermaid) that we helped Geppetto Labs create. We´ve built a system that transforms NLP outputs into controllers for the Unity engine in order to animate 3D Merly as well as the whole environment she´s in. We trigger 3D animations according to the emotional nature of the NLP content.
