Press Release – Aug. 20, 2021 – TMMI Expands Into Artificial Intelligence In Co-Development Agreement With CodeBaby, Inc.

TMMI’s Co-Development agreement with virtual character pioneer, CodeBaby, Inc. will propel the Company’s growth into diverse markets through the integration of several new technologies. The co-development will highlight the utilization of CodeBaby’s next generation, emotionally intelligent avatars designed to be integrated with TMMI and other technologies.

TMMI President, Michael Kozole made the announcement stating, “TMMI has always focused on high quality, cutting-edge, video technology since its beginning in 1990.  Over the recent months, TMMI has assembled this opportunity to bring together an association of top-level talent and shared technology development with CodeBaby, that will create emotionally intelligent avatars that deliver all-new experiences in artificial intelligence with greater access to a broad base of businesses and consumers”.

The CodeBaby teams come with over 20 years of experience in animation, gaming and artificial intelligence.  Founded in 2001, CodeBaby attracted the attention of two doctors in Alberta, Canada, who had co-founded a video game company (Bioware) in 1995.  Following a successful sale of Bioware, these doctors joined CodeBaby in 2008 and developed proprietary tools which allowed clients to implement beautifully animated training courses and tutorials with little technology expertise. They built CodeBaby into a company that leveraged gaming expertise to drive interaction and retention for Fortune 500 customers such as United Healthcare, BCBS of Maryland, Guardian Life Insurance Company and MetLife within healthcare, financial services, and eCommerce.

Nfinity Avatars, a company focused on artificial intelligence and natural language processing, acquired CodeBaby in 2016, combining the two companies’ proprietary processes to convey empathy in avatar conversations.  Nfinity Avatars and its predecessor company (IdAvatars) was one of the first 100 companies to commercialize IBM Watson® technology for clients such as the Veterans Administration, Bayer GmbH and Intel.  Nfinity Avatars changed its name to that of its acquired company, CodeBaby in 2021.

President and CEO, Norrie Daroga stated, “We believe our development association with TMMI is critically relevant to today’s world. We will utilize our animation and game technology teams in England and Portugal to design multi-connectivity avatars that go beyond traditional “artificial intelligence” experiences to “emotional intelligence” experiences bringing a whole new level of visual engagement for the end users so critical in the emerging post-COVID world.”
