UneeQ Launches Digital Einstein
UneeQ has launched Digital Einstein as part of its new Companions series.
On the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's Nobel Prize in physics, UneeQ has remastered Einstein as a digital human driven by conversational and experiential artificial intelligence to create a meaningful experience with one of history's greatest minds.
Digital Einstein, an example of Experiential AI, provides a human-to-machine interaction leveraging digital humans to drive personality-led engagements.
Powered by UneeQ's digital human platform, Digital Einstein recreates Einstein's personality traits and mannerisms and is available to anyone who would like to speak with him 24-hours a day. Digital Einstein can test an individual's knowledge on a variety of topics through his daily quiz or engage in a personal conversation about his life's work and research.
"Mental health and companionship are long-standing problems facing our society today, of which COVID-19 has significantly exacerbated," said Danny Tomsett, CEO of UneeQ, in a statement. "One of UneeQ's core values is 'Tech for Good', and we are actively seeking ways to apply our innovative solutions to that cause. As part of our new Companions series, Digital Einstein, among other digital humans, can communicate with people in a way that comes most naturally—using conversation, human expressions, and emotional responses to best provide daily interactions that we hope make a difference in people's lives."
Einstein's likeness, and rights to his research were provided by The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Greenligh.
"Albert Einstein, a founding father of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, is considered one of the greatest scientists of all time. His work is the basis for our understanding of the universe and its development. We were delighted to work with UneeQ on this groundbreaking project, knowing that Einstein's legacy continues to educate and guide the minds of tomorrow through interactive AI technology," said Yishai Fraenkel, vice president and director general of Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in a statement.
"Whether it's one of the most influential minds in the world or a modern-day influencer, progressive companies are leveraging today's digital channels to connect global brands with consumers through the power of next-generation technology, including digital humans," said Ricky Butler, CEO of BEN. "We are honored to play a role in the impact Digital Einstein, among other virtual influencers, will have on society's mental health problem."
This project has been made possible with the help of several talented companies including Aflorithmic (Digital Einstein's voice), Goodbye Kansas Studios (Digital Einstein artist rendering), and WolframAlpha (Digital Einstein's intellectual responses).
