Crowd in 2022

The Talking Head Platform - Commercialisation in 2022

Since commencing their business transformation in September 2019, Crowd Media has been vocal in their 3-year plan which culminates in 2022 with the launch of the commercialization of their Conversational Commerce vision.

With their databank of conversations that had been generated over the past 10 years, Crowd was in the best position to lead the project given Crowd effectively owned the `brain` of the platform where other AI Alliance members offered the visual, audio and user interface elements.

The culmination of these efforts came to the fore towards the end of 2021 when Crowd showcased the first use-case application for the platform where users were invited to interact with a Talking Head doctor that could answer medical questions. The Digital Doctor in particular was part of a Proof of Concept ordered by PangeaMed which became the first paying client of Crowd`s Talking Head platform.

Idan Schmorak to Lead Commercial Push

2022 has been flagged as the year Crowd intends to scale the platform so that it can rapidly roll out individual avatars with full 3D imaging and voice cloning. Operating such a platform where many influencers and brands have millions of followers that would converse with the AI has various roadblocks to overcome, with one being bandwidth requirements to process so much deep tech data instantly. This is one area of expertise Schmorak will be familiar with, given military communications must be able to function on the smallest of bandwidth requirements to ensure clarity in remote locations.

Coversational Commerce

As more followers flocked to influencers and celebrities with direct access on social platforms, the influencers did not have time to engage with all their fans directly. The commercial application of the Talking Head platform has long been its application in sales and customer engagement. After sales and direct marketing, education has been touted as the next most likely commercial opportunity for the Talking Head platform.

.

NFT's and Metaverse

Crowd's management has openly mentioned plans to monetize their technology in the form of NFTs. This could potentially classify each of their AI-generated unique avatars as a digital asset that costs very little to mint but can be sold and resold at high valuations as evidenced by the BEANS NFT collection. Taking the concept even further, there are opportunities for Crowd to utilize their deep fake technology to create digital avatars of real-life people whereby the digital avatar would be an NFT reflecting their original creator.
