PAIYO: Building your own Personal AI (PAI)


ObEN believes that every person in the world will soon have their own virtual copy. Many refer to this virtual copy as a Personal AI - or PAI - a digital avatar or a virtual human created using AI technology, designed to look and sound like the person who creates it. The reason we refer to it as a PAI is not just because your virtual copy has been created by AI, but because it can also be operated by AI for a ton of use cases. We see a future wherein one could download (or rather upload) their PAI into the cloud and the PAI could live forever bearing the likeness of its human creator.

ObEN also believes that every person should be ownand control their PAI for their own benefit. Also, a person’s PAI is an expression of a person in the virtual world - thus the person should be able to customize and monetize their PAI as they see fit.

The technology required to build a PAI is quite complicated as it deals with building a full artificial intelligence-based model to capture the likeness of the person. To build a visual likeness, a person takes a selfie on their mobile and the AI then builds a realistic likeness of the person in a few seconds. To make the PAI speak in their voice, the user has to train the PAI model with a few sentences of their voice. In the future, a user should also be able to train their PAI with their personality. One thing to note is that at the start, the PAI is just like a baby. The more you train it and the better data you use, the better the likeness and usefulness of the PAI. Similarly, the premise is that the more time you spend training your PAI, the more it will learn from you and become like you and be able to represent you on your behalf.

The ObEN team has been working hard to launch the first iteration of PAI to its fan base globally. The process to build the AI models which generate a PAI on mobile phones in a matter of seconds is quite complicated and requires a lot of research and development and data modeling by some of the smartest scientists and engineers in the world working out of ObEN’s offices in Pasadena. Some of the work done by ObEN has resulted in some innovative breakthroughs in the area of Personal AI and led to some groundbreaking papers and patents in areas of speech, natural language processing, and computer vision. Further innovation includes minimizing the data required of the user (a selfie with a few sentences), providing for a more convenient and better overall experience..

All the hard work from the ObEN team has now resulted in the birth of its first consumer-centric mobile app called PAIYO. Any user will soon be able to download it on their mobile phones (iOS and Android) and be able to take a selfie and make their ownPAI. They will also be able to change the physical characteristics of their PAI. Want to add more muscle? You got it. Change your PAI’s hairdo? Check. The user can also change outfits on the PAI to best match their own personal style. For the launch, our users in China can celebrate Chinese New Year with a special edition Year of the Rat outfit. The PAIYOapp is expected to be launched by end of January 2020.

This is just the start. We will keep adding more features to PAI. Eventually, we believe that every user can use their PAI to become a KOL/ Influencer in PAIYO.



ObEN同样认为,每个人的都应该属于自己,可以由其自由支配和使用。个性化人工智能,湃,是每个人在虚拟世界的代表 – 因此,每个人都应该有权利对其进行自定义并从中获利。

创建所需的技术非常复杂,因为它涉及建立一个完整的基于人工智能的模型来捕捉人的长相特征。为了实现视觉相似度,用户仅需要用手机进行自拍,AI就可以在几秒钟内创建逼真的人像模型。为了创建一模一样的声音,用户需要录几个句子来训练模型。在不久的将来,用户还应该使用自己的个性来训练他的。需要注意的是, 的成长犹如一个初生婴儿—你训练得越多,输入的数据越好,的相似性和实用性就会越高。同样,前提是你需要花费大量的时间时间培训你的,它便有机会从你那里学习到更多信息,跟你越接近,以至于可以慢慢代表你。


ObEN团队的不懈努力和辛勤工作下,我们将迎来首个以消费者为中心的移动应用程序派友的诞生。任何用户都可以将它下载到手机上(同时支持苹果和安卓系统),并通过自拍创建属于自己的。他们还可以对其进行美化,比如想要更完美的身材?想要换个发型?快去体验一下。用户还可以为更换不同的服装,展示属于自己的时尚风格。对于此次发布,我们在中国的用户可以使用鼠年的特别定制版来迎新春。派友 APP预计将于20201月底发布。
