Ubisoft announced that they will be implementing IBM Watson’s speech recognition and cognitive capabilities in Star Trek: Bridge Crew for an experimental beta period. Now, players will be able to command a full crew of AI officers or replace a that missing friend who was called away on a last minute emergency with single AI officer. The benefit of the technology allows players to command AI crew members with their voice using natural language instead of specific, pre-determined commands. The experience will be akin to how we already interact with our personal assistants like Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa versus traditional voice commands.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a co-operative simulator that puts players on the bridge of the U.S.S. Aegis on a mission for Starfleet. Each player takes on a different role on the bridge and the team must work together to complete the mission successfully. The game is available now for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.Related Articles for this post below:
