AskTheCandidates2012.com - Hold Your Own Presidential Debate with Virtual AI Representations of the 2012 US Presidential Candidates.
Artificial intelligence company Zabaware, Inc. launches www.askthecandidates2012.com - a political site allowing visitors to stage their own presidential debate where questions are answered by virtual representations of the 2012 US presidential candidates using actual quotes.
Visitors can choose to have one-on-one conversations with one or all the candidates. They can become very informed about what each candidate has to say on issues which are most important to them. Along with every response is information as to when and where that particular quote came from.
At the center of the site is the award winning artificial intelligence (AI) technology named Ultra Hal. Ultra Hal was created by Zabaware Inc., and has been an ongoing project for the past 16 years. By using a massive database of natural language conversations collected from many sources across the net, and a number of dedicated servers, Ultra Hal has the ability to understand your questions and respond in a surprisingly intelligent way.
The Ask the Candidates 2012 site is a free service accessible at www.askthecandidates2012.com. In addition, general purpose consumer AI technology is available at www.zabaware.com, including Zabaware's popular Ultra Hal Assistant, software that can give your computer a personality using AI technology, speech recognition technology, and real-time animation.
