The new face, Nadia

April 5, 2017

After Cortana, Alexa and Siri, here is a new virtual face – Nadia. Her creators believe, she is going to change life of more than half a million disabled people down under.

New Zealand startup Soul Machines made an avatar that can express emotions and even read facial  expressions. By humanizing the interaction between the disabled and the machine, Nadia will be acting as their virtual assistant. Since she is learning through experience, the chatbot will gradually become more like a real friend, able to read emotions and act accordingly. Nadia looks like a person, but is in fact a super smart computer with the soothing voice of Cate Blanchett. The developers believe, she will make a real difference in the lives of people with disabilities, helping them to overcome the daily hurdles.

Maybe one day she will even be poking fun at Siri, as some are doing now.
