Signing New Subscriber Every 3 Seconds, D-ID Upgrades AI Studio And Chatbot – Forbes

Continuing to ride on top of the generative AI wave, Israeli startup D-ID today announced a new version of its text-to-video self-service studio and new capabilities for chat d-id which gives ChatGPT a face and voice.
D-ID gives ChatGPT a face and voice.
The first multimodal platform to combine text-image-video generation in one platform, D-ID’s studio has signed a new subscriber every three seconds, with 150 million videos generated from the technology since its launch in the second half of 2022.
Both the D-ID studio and its chatbot have millions of unique visitors per month. When D-ID’s live-streaming capability and its API were launched last March, co-founder and CEO Gil Perry told me: “Our vision is to disrupt how humans interface with anything digital.” Recently, D-ID enabled users to add faces of their own choosing to chat d-id, as well as a text prompt to fine-tune their avatar’s personality and characteristics.
These capabilities have already attracted one million developers, with a new developer generating an API key every four minutes (an application programming interface or API key is a unique identifier typically used to authenticate and authorize a project with the API). Perry expects one of these developers to build the next Tik Tok on top of the D-ID platform.

Some developers are indeed driven by big ambitions to create the next popular social network. Others would use D-ID’s studio to solve urgent problems, including helping address the negative aspects of not having a human network. They could use D-ID’s avatar customization capability in order to help address the loneliness epidemic in the U.S., for example.
According to a recent report from the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, one in two American adults report experiencing loneliness. Using social media for more than two hours a day doubles the odds of reporting increased perceptions of social isolation and lacking social connections can increase the risk for premature death as much as smoking up to 15 cigarettes a day.
In response, a number of technology startups have developed AI that attempts to alleviate the experience of feeling lonely:
Intuition Robotics has introduced in the U.S. its companion robot, ElliQ. 95% of users find ElliQ useful in reducing their loneliness and improving their well-being, and 90% report that ElliQ has improved their quality of life.
AI algorithms from Arctop translate chaotic, complex brain signals instantaneously into ordered, structured and useful data. Its empathic AI can function as a digital companion, intuitively identifying one’s emotional state and responding with personalized resources to give targeted support without the need for the person to verbalize how they feel.
In a similar vein, today’s upgrade to chat.d-id gives its users the ability to upload any image to converse in real time with a generative AI of their choice. And the new version of D-ID’s studio allows creators to add emotions and facial expressions to avatars and digital people.
Marketers, creators, digital artists, filmmakers, advertising agencies, illustrators, storyboard artists, music video producers, and game developers use D-ID’s studio to give life to images at a reduced cost and effort compared to traditional tools for video content creation. With the new version of D-ID’s chatbot, users can upload their own photos or an image of a historical, fictional, or AI-generated figure. Furthermore, they can instruct the chatbot to answer as if they were that person, “in character,” allowing for a myriad of natural interactions.
“We are excited to be launching the next-generation studio, giving users even more control over avatars’ expressions and further enabling thousands of businesses to become prolific creators with scalable personalization,” Perry said in a statement.
