Will, the digital teacher

Will, the digital teacher

In conjunction with New Zealand’s leading AI company Soul Machines, Vector has created Will, a ‘digital teacher’ being trialled in its award-winning ‘Be Sustainable with Energy’ schools programme, which is offered free of charge to schools within Vector’s Auckland electricity network. The schools programme was launched in 2005 and has since educated more than 125,000 children about energy.

Will uses Soul Machines’ world-leading Artificial Nervous System – an autonomous animation platform that is modelled on the way the human brain and nervous system work – to bring his digital human face and persona to life in a very human-like way.
