Convai: Bringing Conversational AI to Omniverse
Integrating Convai with Omniverse
Convai, an innovative platform enabling AI characters to engage in natural conversation, has extended its reach to include Omniverse, NVIDIA's open platform for virtual collaboration and real-time 3D simulation. This integration allows developers to leverage Convai's powerful AI tools within the Omniverse environment.
Installing the Convai Extension
To integrate Convai with Omniverse, developers first need to navigate to the Integrations page on the Convai website and download the Omniverse extension. A simple command line operation links the extension with an Omniverse application. Omniverse Code is a popular choice for this integration.
Setting Up the Convai Extension in Omniverse Code
Once the extension is linked, developers can open Omniverse Code and locate the Convai extension. By adding a new URL under search paths and enabling the Convai extension, developers can activate the Convai window within the Omniverse Code interface.
Configuring Convai for Omniverse
Obtaining the Convai API Key
To use the Convai extension, developers need to obtain their API key from the Convai website. This API key is then pasted into the Convai API key field within Omniverse Code.
Choosing a Character
Developers can use a default character provided by Convai, or they can choose to use their own. The Convai dashboard allows developers to create new characters or modify existing ones, adjusting the character's name, voice, and backstory. The character ID of the chosen character is then copied over into the character ID field in Omniverse Code.
Testing Convai in Omniverse
Once the Convai extension is configured, developers can test its functionality. By engaging in conversation with the AI character, developers can assess the natural flow of conversation and the responsiveness of the character. For a more immersive test, developers can load a demo stage that includes both idle and talking animations for the character.
The Future of AI in Omniverse with Convai
With the integration of Convai into Omniverse, AI characters can now engage in natural, dynamic conversations within the platform. This enhancement opens new possibilities for creating and customizing virtual worlds, promising an exciting future for the metaverse community.
