  • Using Virtual Reality to Bring Your Chatbot to Life

    Chatbots are most commonly used as a feature of mobile or desktop websites, where text is used for the primary interaction method. In this session we’ll explore how you can use Amazon Sumerian to create a virtual host that can be interacted with through virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) or just as a digital character. This makes voice a far more natural interaction method. We’ll also look at how you can extend this bot to interact with other rich services in the AWS Cloud.

    We will cover

    • Introduction to VR/AR, and how to supercharge them with the AWS Cloud
    • Use cases for VR/AR in your business
    • Demonstration of how to bring your chatbot to life with Amazon Sumerian
