Three computer science dropouts from BITS Pilani in Goa, who founded a tech startup with the aim to create India's first virtual reality operating system, are developing an artificial intelligence engine that can create interactive content for games at a faster pace and with minimal human intervention.

The team, which started Absentia in early 2015, worked for three years to integrate virtual reality technology with digital video content for brands and created its own headset, similar to the Oculus Rift virtual reality system. It is now building and testing the artificial intelligence product called Norah AI.

In simple terms, Norah AI is a bot that can create game designs and structures in response to simple commands. These include machine-generated storylines, dialogues, characters, weapons and varied game scenes based on text or pictorial inputs. "We are launching it in July or August and are already working with various indie developers who will test its user applications," said Vrushali Prasade, CTO at Absentia. Read More
