Artificial intelligence (AI) company ObEN, creating Personal AI (PAI) technology to revolutionize digital interaction, has debuted PAI News, the first widely available app to leverage AI-driven hosts and anchors, advancing the technology beyond video demos into a consumer facing application.

At launch, the app will feature the 3D PAI avatar of “Satoshi” presenting news on blockchain and cryptocurrency. Created by ObEN as an homage to prevailing theories of Satoshi’s identity, the PAI avatar will serve as the first anchor on the platform, delivering the latest headlines on-demand across numerous sectors including technology, finance, law, and education.

Through ObEN’s AI, the Satoshi PAI can automatically narrate any content added to the app, with voice and facial movements automatically generated using state-of-the- art AI technology. Upcoming features will allow influencers, news organizations, and even users to create their own AI-presented content – including the ability to choose from several premade avatars or even create their own using a smartphone.

This integration of 3D avatar and AI-driven content is a result of ObEN’s full-stack AI technology, which can take 2D selfies and convert them instantaneously into 3D avatars that can be ported into a variety of experiences. ObEN’s technology can also take short voice recordings and produce a functional AI voice with full chatbot features that can be paired with the avatar. In addition to personalized Text-to- Speech systems in a variety of languages, ObEN’s avatars are unique in that a single voice can be used to create content in multiple languages (English, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese currently available) without the need for more data. The result is a digital twin bearing the likeness and voice of any user, which can speak and appeal to a wide global audience.
