Joseph von Fraunhofer

Our HEROES from b.ReX will be exhibitors at the KI-Festival in Heilbronn, on July 1 and 2, 2023, which offers the opportunity to “meet AI experts, experience enthusiasm and share concerns in a festival atmosphere”!

They will present the AI project “Joseph von Fraunhofer“: In the employee competition, the idea of a virtual company founder was created: Joseph von Fraunhofer. The conception of the avatar is based on paintings, written documents and his death mask. In the lobby of the Stuttgart Fraunhofer Institutes, the avatar conducts conversations, supported by GPT-4 and NVIDIA’s “Audio 2 Face” technology. Since 2022, employees and guests have been interacting with the virtual founder to better understand the connection between science and industry through Fraunhofer.
