About Us

AI-Driven Avatars as Next Computing Interface

Pinscreen is an artificial intelligence company based out of Los Angeles founded by MIT 35 Under 35 Winner, Hao Li, who is also a Distinguished Fellow at UC Berkeley. We develop the world’s most advanced and photorealistic AI-driven virtual avatars. We provide the full solution for human-like virtual assistants as well as virtual avatar creation and performance capture. Our goal is to make fully autonomous virtual avatars that indistinguishable from real humans, and define the future of human-machine interaction.

What makes us Different?

Our virtual humans are powered by a full stack AI solution and users can interact with them using their voice or text. Pinscreen avatars run completely on the cloud and can be accessed through a web browser or a mobile device. Our cutting-edge neural rendering technology, PaGAN, allows us to generate virtual humans that are nearly indistinguishable from real ones. Pinscreen also provides state-of-the-art human digitization and performance capture technologies for full body avatar creation, customization, and animation.

Who we are

We are a team of world-class Graphics/Vision/AI researchers, engineers, game designers, and VFX artists. We have published extensively at top scientific conferences including ACM SIGGRAPH and IEEE CVPR, and our technologies were exhibited at premier events such as the World Economic Forum in Davos.
