Nov 12, 2021

Māia, a Digital Person created by Soul Machines, was one of the four MCs at the APEC CEO Summit welcoming, linking and introducing speakers and panelists throughout the two-day virtual forum, which is being broadcast from the Aotea Centre in Auckland.

One of the major themes of this Summit was digital disruption, so Maia gave a perfect example of an astonishingly life-like digital person immersed in the increasingly digital world in which we live and transact business.

“Digital workers like Māia can bring ecommerce brand experiences to life today, help fill the gaps in our education and healthcare providers, and because they are 3D, they are ready for the rapidly evolving metaverse. For APEC we’ve supercharged Māia’s awareness of her surroundings which allows for a truly immersive experience for summit attendees,” says Greg Cross.

Māia can speak Te Reo (Māori  language) and English.
