Roblox, the popular social app, has unveiled its new conversational AI assistant, the Roblox Assistant, at the 2023 Roblox Developers Conference (RDC).


This innovative tool is set to revolutionise the way creators build experiences on the platform.


The Roblox Assistant builds on previously announced features that assist creators in building virtual assets and writing code with the help of generative AI. It enables creators to generate virtual environments simply by typing in prompts. For instance, a prompt such as "I want to make a game set in ancient ruins" will result in Roblox creating an environment with stones, moss-covered columns, and broken architecture.


The Roblox Assistant can also assist with coding and answer questions about developing on Roblox, making it a valuable tool for creators on the platform. However, creators will need to wait a bit longer to use the Roblox Assistant, as it is expected to launch at the end of this year or early next year.


Roblox has bigger plans for the Roblox Assistant, with visions of it generating sophisticated gameplay and even creating 3D models from scratch. This aligns with CEO David Baszucki’s vision of Westworld-like ease of design.


However, the introduction of these generative AI tools has raised concerns about their impact on Roblox’s developer and creator community. Roblox CTO Daniel Sturman addressed these concerns, stating that generative AI will reduce creators’ dependence on specific technical skills, allowing their creativity to shine.


In addition to the Roblox Assistant, other AI-based updates were discussed at RDC. These include a tool that allows you to create an avatar from an image and a text prompt, set to release in 2024, and another tool that uses AI to moderate voice conversations in real-time, aiming to reduce toxicity on the platform.


Roblox is confident in its use of AI to enhance its services. As Sturman puts it, "We’re not a hammer looking for a nail. We’ve got plenty of nails. We know what it means to enable creators."


The Roblox Assistant certainly seems like a step in the right direction, making game creation more accessible and fun for all.
