The avatars can mimic human body language and react appropriately to happiness or sadness

The startup Expressive has introduced avatars that mimic human emotions like happiness, sadness, shock, disgust and anger. The avatars respond after first detecting those same emotions by analyzing the tone in words used by a person, a process called sentiment analysis.

Expressive’s avatars might be available for use by the public by the end of the year, Expressive co-founder Jared Peters told VentureBeat. However, Peters said the avatars will first be put to work as “digital nurses” tending to patients for a health care provider.

“We have some hope that this will expand the bot development marketplace to be more consumer-friendly and more playful and entertainment-based,” Peters said.
