According to Kommersant, the telecommunications company Vimpelcom (owns the Beeline brand) is working on a virtual assistant based on artificial intelligence, for which the user can choose his own 3D avatar. This is stated on the new website of the operator yourvirtualfriend.ru, registered in December 2020. A “virtual friend” will help organize leisure activities and will give bonuses in the form of promotional codes, for example, in a cafe, according to the project page. She leads to a Telegram channel, where it is specified that the first version of the mobile application with an assistant will appear in February. At the same time, VimpelCom itself refused to comment on the project.
Experts believe that this service is designed to help the company increase revenue by including its own products in the recommendations. Other telecom operators are already developing similar services and it will be difficult to compete in the market.
