NVIDIA has created AI models which are ideal for the implementation of Smart NPCs in games. In this session we’ll present NVIDIA’s Audio-To-Face technology, which uses AI to generate facial animation based on speech input as audio – especially useful in real-time for games where dialog and speech are synthesized, not pre-canned. We’ll explain how anyone developing smart NPC tools or experiences can integrate A2F in their own projects, at production or runtime stages. Attendees will learn how to integrate speech-driven AI facial animation with standard and custom games character rigs.


Attendees will learn how to integrate speech-driven AI facial animation into various tools and experiences using NVIDIA's Audio2Face.
