Professor Roberto Cipolla said: "This technology could be the start of a whole new generation of interfaces which make interacting with a computer much more like talking to another human being. "It took us days to create Zoe, because we had to start from scratch and teach the system to understand language and expression. Now that it already understands those things, it shouldn't be too hard to transfer the same blueprint to a different voice and face." The system is light enough to work in mobile phones and uses could include smartphone personal assistants or face messages to replace texts. It works by using a set of fundamental emotions. Zoe's voice, for example, has six basic settings: happy, sad, tender, angry, afraid and neutral.

This is horrible, as someone who is studying 3d art i can tell you this is very outdated, any gaming company that produces triple A games can do something 10 times better than this, not to mention a studio for movies. This seems like technology for 1995-2000.
