System and Method of Marketing Collaborative Interactions in an Avatar Based Environment

Seeking advice and recommendations from trusted individuals is a natural aspect of relationships. Traditionally such needs are fulfilled in social interactions with peers, colleagues, friends, and family. However, in technological environments, the presence of software and hardware based assistants provide an opportunity to seek such interactions with AI systems who can harness a wide range of experiences, expert systems, and other information sources.

The method and system disclosed herein provides the following three distinct facets which can be orchestrated to provide guidance-based interaction:

 Avatar-to-user interaction: Interaction between an avatar and an owning user, facilitating the avatar's growing understanding of the user using natural language processing. The interaction is extended and re-adjusted through ongoing dialogue between the user and the avatar.

 Avatar-to-avatar interaction: Interaction between a primary avatar and other avatars, expert systems, or similar data sources. Such interactions allow the avatar to learn and grow expertise even in absence of the presence of the user or direction by the user.

 Expertise marketplace: An establishment of an expertise marketplace in which experienced avatars can provide expertise and other services in exchange for a variety of different currencies.

Disclosed is a system and method of marketing collaborative interactions in an avatar based environment. The system and method enables autonomically developing expertise in a variety of fields which can be marketed to other autonomous processes or human users.

Consider an embodiment, wherein a user purchases an AI system designed to learn about the user through natural language interactions. During this time, the AI system gathers data to understand the moods, preferences, needs, and other facets of the user's persona. This system then becomes a sort of avatar, not necessarily becoming a digital representation of the user but rather becoming a personality entity of its own with intimate knowledge of the user.

The avatar then interacts with other sources of data. Though optimally this interaction would occur with other avatars who have also learned from their users, this could also occur in any number of digital environments, and include more research-based activities (less reliant upon actual interaction) such as the avatar's investi...
