D-ID web app chats with photorealistic people
San Francisco, 3/9/2023
AI company D-ID has launched a web app that allows users to chat face-to-face with photorealistic AI humans.
The app, called chat.D-ID, combines OpenAI’s ChatGPT with the text-to-video capabilities of D-ID.
The web app can now allow illiterate users to communicate with ChatGPT via synthetic speech and facial technology.
Chat.D-ID, now in beta, allows users to ask questions via voice or text with an avatar named Alice.
“Video is more effective than text, so the app increases the power of large language models by adding a face,” Gil Perry, CEO of D-ID, told TechCrunch.
Eventually, D-ID plans to add more digital characters and allow people to upload photos of people to be used as faces in the app.
D-ID’s AI software is also used by online genealogy service MyHeritage for its “Deep Nostalgia” tool, which makes still images appear as if they are moving. People use it to animate old photos of their ancestors.
D-ID also recently launched Creative Reality Studio, a platform for creating videos of a person from text and a single image of that person. Users simply upload a photo and enter text or an audio clip. You then choose a voice, language and style, e.g. B. happy or excited.
