Annam Naresh, Rushabh Gandhi, Mallikarjuna Rao Bellamkonda, Mithun Das Gupta


Chat bots are becoming ubiquitous in our day to day life. The advent of the summer of AI has brought us all in close contact with intelligent agents such as Cortana, Siri and Alexa. We envisage a world, where these bots have there physical existence within the realm of Mixed Reality (MR). We present the first 3D chit-chat bot called the HoloCompanion. This bot has a personality, can chat with anyone and about any topic and has articulated lip, eye and head movements.
