Meet “Cora,” the First Virtual Host Built on Amazon Sumerian

By Adam Schouela

Consider your most recent question about your investments. Now imagine being able to ask that question of a person standing right in front of you. Well, virtually that is.

This is Cora. At Fidelity Labs we created her as a proof of concept with Amazon Sumerian, the new service for building and running virtual reality, augmented reality, and 3D applications from Amazon Web Services.

What makes Cora so unique is that you interact with her through virtual reality and voice, a combination we feel goes perfectly together. So when Amazon announced the creation of Sumerian, we were proud to create the first proof of concept on this platform that integrates the “host” feature with virtual reality.

This proof of concept is a prototype. But imagine what experiences like this could mean for how you interact with your finances in the future?

Virtual reality can help you imagine your savings goals… Add in a virtual coach who can answer your questions and give you the information you need to make decisions without “data overload.”

Cora is just the beginning, and we’re excited to see where she – and Sumerian – will go.
