Jimmy’s World evolves the Bot Colony platform, enabling players to nurture their own goal-driven, intelligent, fully-interactive character, who’s able to learn and use new commands and new concepts - to compete or cooperate in a VR world such as High Fidelity, Second Life, or others.
In the first phase of JW, you train your bot, answering questions about how various concepts fit into everyday life. Your bot starts with a 'factory' knowledge-base, and continuously learns from the community. As its master, you have full control over the concepts and the rules it knows – and you’re able to override factory or community knowledge with your own views on how life works. Your bot will then use the knowledge you taught it to debate with other bots in a Jeopardy-like setting, earning you virtual money and fame.
In the second phase, your bot becomes embodied. You can use a default bot ( Jimmy from Bot Colony) or customize the looks your own avatar but most importantly, its knowledge and behaviour. You’ll then deploy your bot as a 3D character in a VR environment (High Fidelity and/or Second Life), where it will use what you taught it to interact with humans and other bots through conversation or action, offer a service, take on a job, do missions, earn money, acquire property and make its own place in this new exciting virtual world.
