NVIDIA ACE for games sparks life into virtual characters with generative AI

The Key Benefits of ACE

State-of-the-Art Models and Microservices

ACE technologies are packaged as NVIDIA Inference Microservices (NIM), which are easy to deploy and highly performant microservices.

Safe and Consistent Results

AI models trained on commercially safe, responsibly licensed data. Fine-tuning and guardrails enable accurate, appropriate, and on-topic results no matter the user’s input.

Flexible Deployment Options

ACE NIMs are flexible and easy to deploy - available to developers to deploy and operate in the cloud, or deploy and run locally on NVIDIA RTX AI PCs.

Digital Human Reference Workflows

Developers can integrate individual - or all - ACE NIMs directly into their products, tools, services or games and experiences for domain-specific AI workflows such as NPCs and customer service assistants.

Game Characters

NVIDIA Covert Protocol technology demo demonstrates NPCs capable of natural language interactions. Developers of middleware, tools, and games can use state-of-the-art real-time language, speech, and animation generative AI models to bring roleplaying capabilities to digital characters. NVIDIA has partnered with Inworld AI to demonstrate NVIDIA ACE integrated into an end-to-end NPC platform with cutting-edge visuals in Unreal Engine 5.

Customer Service Agents

NVIDIA Tokkio is a digital assistant workflow built with ACE, bringing AI-powered customer service capabilities to healthcare, financial services, and retail. It comes to life using state-of-the-art real-time language, speech, and animation generative AI models alongside Omniverse RTX and retrieval augmented generation (RAG) to convey specific and up-to-date information to customers.
