Ilya Gelfenbeyn and Kylan Gibbs of Inworld on Voice AI in the Metaverse - Voicebot Podcast Ep 253

Ilya Gelfenbeyn is CEO and Kylan Gibbs is chief product officer of Inworld. The company has a novel voice AI service that gives brains to in-game and metaverse characters and enables them to have personalities, backstories, knowledge, and the ability to converse. It's an impressive combination of conversational AI technologies for configuring characters and operating them in virtual worlds. 

There is a lot of talk about metaverses and how conversational AI may play a role. Inworld has the most interesting angle I have seen to date on this topic. 

Gelfenbeyn was CEO and co-founder of API.ai which was acquired by Google in 2016 and became Dialogflow. Gibbs is the former product manager for conversational AI products at DeepMind.
