Core Concepts

Below you'll find a glossary of the main Amica concepts.

Transcription Module

  • Accurate Speech-to-Text Conversion: Converts spoken words into written text with high accuracy.

  • Multilingual Support: Recognizes and transcribe speech in multiple languages to enhance global accessibility.

  • Real-time Transcription: Provides the ability to transcribe speech in real-time for dynamic interactions.

Text-to-Speech (TTS) Module

  • Natural Language Processing: Generates human-like and expressive speech patterns for a lifelike experience.

  • Customizable Voice Profiles: Allows users to choose from a variety of voices and personalize their avatar's speech characteristics.

  • Emotional Intonation: Enables the avatar to convey different emotions through variations in tone, pitch, and pacing.

Expression Engine

  • Facial Expression Mapping: Implements a system that maps emotions and expressions onto the avatar's face in response to user input or context.

  • Realistic Eye Movements: Simulates natural eye movements, including blinking, gaze tracking, and expressions to convey emotions effectively.

Vision Capability

  • Image Recognition: Integrates computer vision algorithms to enable the avatar to interpret and respond to visual stimuli.

  • Object Recognition: Allows the avatar to identify and interact with objects in its environment for a more immersive experience.

VRM Animation Files

  • VRM Support: Support the VRM (Virtual Reality Model) file format for avatars, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of virtual environments and platforms.

  • Animation Rigging: Implements a robust animation rigging system that supports dynamic movements and interactions.

  • User-Generated Content: Allows users to create and share their own VRM animation files, fostering a community-driven ecosystem.

Interaction and Dialog Management

  • Contextual Understanding: A system that understands and remembers the context of ongoing conversations for more coherent interactions.

  • Dynamic Responses: Enables the avatar to generate responses that adapt to the user's input, creating a dynamic and engaging conversation.

Integration with External Services

  • API Support: Enables integration with external services, such as virtual assistants, social media, or third-party applications for extended functionality.

  • Cloud-based Processing: Utilize cloud services for resource-intensive tasks like real-time transcription and complex AI processing.

Security and Privacy

  • End-to-End Encryption: robust encryption protocols to ensure the security and privacy of user interactions.

  • User Data Protection: Adherence to strict data protection standards and regulations to safeguard user information.

  • Local Processing: Local processing capabilities to minimize the need for cloud services and reduce the risk of data breaches.

Scalability and Performance

  • Efficient Resource Management: Optimized software for performance to ensure smooth interactions even on less powerful devices.

  • Scalable Architecture: Software designed with scalability in mind to handle a growing user base and evolving technology.
