Project information

Project descriptions

Content creators face challenges in maintaining active engagement due to time constraints and increasing audience sizes, which make personalized interactions difficult. Current platforms like Discord and Twitch require direct creator involvement, making scalability a challenge. Our solution, iVatar, is a web and mobile application that utilizes AI and customizable avatars to enhance audience interaction. It allows creators to design avatars that can independently communicate using the creator’s voice and style. These avatars can operate on multiple platforms, offering a wider reach. iVatar also features an interactive chat dashboard for managing the chatbot’s knowledge base and includes voice cloning for more engaging conversations. Content creators retain full ownership and control over their chatbots, ensuring personalized and interactive communication.

Project innovation

We’re in the final stage of building the interactive 3D avatar that can perform actions in response to chat input – which is a feature not seen in any major chatbot builder out there.
