Meet Sam the CyberTwin
In a nutshell, a CyberTwin is an avatar that’s powered by AI to chat to real humans. In AMP’s case, Sam has been designed to answer customers’ questions about bank accounts and superannuation.
Can we apply CyberTwins to e-learning?
The short answer is “yes”.
According to MyCyberTwin (Dec 2008)…
CyberTeachers are endlessly patient, and have endless depth of knowledge. They can be trained to offer structured support to learn how to use a new piece of technology, bring life to learning content, and chat to thousands of people simultaneously for hours at a time. Our multi-lingual robots help visitors practice their English skills.
And yes, CyberTwins can be deployed into Second Life.
