A VIRTUAL PET ENHANCED BY EMOTION AI

FIDO LEARNS WITH EMOTIONS FROM VOICE

Natural interaction, not bound by any buttons. Fido is the first virtual character, using Emotion AI to simulate real emotional behavior. Just like a real animal, it is far more important to him how you say something than what you say. Fido will recognize if you talk angrily, sadly, or happily. Even more so, Emotion AI enables him to learn and unlearn behavior patterns.

Fido’s Memories uses Audio AI to capture the emotions in the player’s voice. The microphone input is processed in real-time and used in the game. Powered by our lightweight entertAIn play technology, Emotion AI runs fluently on any device. Try it yourself and download our free demo level.

BEHIND THE SCENES

EMOTION AI PLUG-IN

Fido’s Memories was created with the Unity game engine. For emotion recogniton, only audEERING’s  drag and drop plug-in entertAIn play has to be added. The plug-in processes microphone input and detects the emotion intensity in real time.

You wonder how this works? Thanks to Voice Activty Detection (VAD) the plug-in can differentiate between voice and other sounds. Incoming voice data is analyzed for over 6000 audio features like volume or harmony.  These features are then fed into an AI model. Similar to a human brain, this model categorizes and matches the features and outputs with the most likely emotion.

Developed with audEERING’s expertise from the well-proven openSMILE audio technology, Audio AI is now finally available for gaming applications.

A FAITHFUL COMPANION

BASED ON TRUE EVENTS

The character of Fido is based on Italy’s most loyal dog – 
the renowned „Fido“ from the town of Borogo San Lorenzo. 
Fido waited for years at one of the city’s bus stations, for his owner 
to return from World War II. Moved by this loyalty, 
the city errected a statue of Fido in 1957, 
which you can still visit today. Or you can visit Fido 
virtually in our demo.
