Virtual Avatar at the stand of Gazprombank
for Startup Village

Gazprombank is the third largest bank in Central and Eastern Europe in terms of equity capital.
We created a bot that talked to visitors about modern banking technologies.
Draw attention to the stand of Gazprombank at the international conference Startup Village in Skolkovo.
Interesting fact
We had to finish this project in one week and we did it!
What is the point
It's not just a bot. It is a virutal assistant called Avatar. That is, the head is not real, of course, but 3d, on the screen. The avatar can talk and it also listens to the user and can continue the conversation on several interesting topics about modern banking.
Avatar can tell about NFTs, digital ruble, tokenization,
virtual card, and Masterchain.

How it works
In addition to banking, we prescribed the bot and reactions to ordinary replicas. It could say hello, tell who it was, and even respond to a compliment or complaint.
Bot has scenarios and lines for conversation
Text which written needs to be voiced - SpeechKit, which we integrated, works for this. There is an audio recording.
The desired text goes to SpeechKit
The avatar is already on the screen «pronouncing» the text - the head moves and moves its lips.
Records are sending to Avatar
In order to continue the dialogue, the user pushes a button and asks a question - everything repeats. The button needed to make it easier for a person and an avatar to communicate in a noisy exhibition.
User asks a question
Interesting fact
We had to separately teach the avatar to pronounce special words, for example, “tokenization”. We fiddled with the markup.
