Inworld is a Character Engine for AI NPCs that goes beyond LLMs – and adds contextual awareness and multimodal expression of personality.
Inworld uses advanced AI to build generative characters whose personalities, thoughts, memories, and behaviors are designed to mimic the deeply social nature of human interaction. The Inworld platform lets you create characters with personality and contextual awareness to keep them in-world and in character. Integrations make it easy for developers to deploy characters into immersive experiences, while scale and performance are optimized for real-time experiences.
We are a team of experts that have pioneered conversational AI platforms and generative models at Google and DeepMind. We are continuing to build out our incredibly talented team, with experts in generative language models, emotions, speech synthesis, multimodal interaction, design, and 3D animation.
