Nvidia has announced Avatar Cloud Engine (ACE), a set of Artificial Intelligence services and models (AI) based on the cloud, which allow the creation and customization of virtual assistants and digital humans with the potential to pass the test of Turing.

The company presented a system for creating avatars using AI, Omniverse Avatar, within the framework of its virtual GTC event held in November 2021. This initiative is part of its platform omniversewhich brings together all the brand’s technologies for 3D design and simulation.

Vice President of Omniverse and Simulation Technology at Nvidia, Rev Lebaredian, has stated that ACE allows the creation of digital assistants that “are on their way to passing the Turing test”. This test, proposed in 1950, has since measured a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent human-like behavior.


ACE is also built on top of the Unified Compute Framework (UCF) from Nvidia, a framework that provides access to ‘software’ tools and application programming interfaces (APIs) “necessary” for creating interactive avatars.

All of them owned by the company.

Nvidia has noted in this statement that it expects assistants and avatars created using the Avatar Cloud Engine “transform interactions” in different sectors and industries, such as ‘gaming’, banking, transport, hospitality and entertainment.
