Personal Virsonas take the term 'social media' to an entirely new level by giving people the ability to achieve digital immortality
Boca Raton, FL and San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 8, 2008
Virsona, Inc, a social media service that builds relationships between people, characters and brands through realistic, real-time, automated chats, today unveiled the beta release of its new Personal Virsona service at the TechCrunch50 Conference (DemoPit Table #50) in San Francisco. The Personal Virsona service enables consumers to create their own virtual personas (a.k.a. Virsona) that "come to life" by independently and intuitively interacting with others via an online chat format as if they were the people who created them.
"Personal Virsonas take the term 'social media' to an entirely new level by giving people the ability to achieve digital immortality," said Peter Hodge, CEO and co-founder of Virsona. "Now consumers can connect with friends and family in an authentic, new way without having to be physically present…or even alive. Imagine the possibilities: children chatting with deceased relatives and learning about important family traditions; parents and grandparents creating life archives that can be accessed for generations to come; and long-distance friends building a stronger relationship even though they can't spend time together in person."
To create a Personal Virsona, a user simply opens an account on Virsona.com and uses the website's tools to build a personal "life archive" of memories, events and information that teach their Virsona the personality it's designed to emulate. A Virsona's life archive is created by entering short, first person descriptions of known memories and documented facts, letters, journal entries, emails and photos, which are then analyzed and interpreted by the company's innovative, patent-pending artificial intelligence technology. Once a Virsona's life archive is populated with content, a user can invite friends and family to view and interact with it. The more information that is added to a life archive by either the creator or an invited friend or family member, the more the Virsona can reason, remember and react like the person it was designed to emulate to become a living, interactive legacy for generations to come. To respect users' privacy, Virsona has multiple privacy levels for content and access rights.
Virsona is a social media service that allows users to create online virtual personas that "come to life" via realistic, real-time chats. Through these life-like Virsonas, users are able to build relationships between people, characters and brands. The company's innovative, patent-pending artificial intelligence technology enables Virsonas to "come to life" by giving them the ability to reason, remember and react just like the person or character they were designed to emulate. Users may interact with Virsonas at the company's destination site, virsona.com, or with embedded Virsonas integrated in affiliate sites whose content is strictly regulated by the company or brand. Virsona is based in Boca Raton, Florida. For more information, visit http://www.virsona.com.
