IBM and Unity partner for easy access to AI tools for VR/AR developers.
IBM and Unity partner to bring the IBM Watson Unity SDK to the Unity Asset Store to make AI integration easier than ever. Through this partnership developers can easily integrate Watson cloud services into their Unity applications such as visual recognition, speech to text, and language classification.
One recent example of the power of IBM Watson in gaming is the recent VR game, Star Trek: Bridge Crew. IBM teamed up with Ubisoft to give players of Star Trek Bridge Crew the ability to issue commands to NPC’s with just their voice using the IBM Watson Unity SDK.
The IBM Watson Unity SDK is available for free on the Unity Asset store. Unity is the market leader in AR and VR and IBM has been pushing Watson as the most robust AI platform. With full access to the Watson suite of AI functions developers will now be able to push VR/AR development to new heights.
