Here's a cool new feature that will change game design.
The developers of Modbox, a multiplayer game creation sandbox with SteamVR support, presented a new feature they are playing with. The team used two machine learning services, OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model and Replica’s natural speech synthesis, to make virtual characters react to players' questions. You have to admit that the feature is amazing.
Microsoft, the main investor of OpenAI, owns exclusive rights to the source code and commercial use of GPT-3, so we're not sure the team can use this feature in the game, but we hope they can make a deal. Still, this is definitely the future of games.
Yes, there's a delay between questions and answers due to the cloud-based nature of GPT-3 and Replica, but future updates will definitely deal with this issue.
