"Come You Nigh: Kay Shuns", or "Communications",  contains a talking 3-D and facial-expressive statue of Caesar Augustus that can speak the answer to almost any question in 30 languages.

The statue of Caesar at the center of the exhibit is a 3-D interface for computing answers using the collected knowledge of the past 2,000 years. It accepts completely free-form, natural language input to produce speech and face motions. This is a unique, universal knowledge engine that generates powerful results in any almost spoken language.    It has 1000+ domains of knowledge, 10+ trillion pieces of data from  curated primary sources, and 50,000+ types of algorithms & equations with built-in knowledge curated by human experts. It computes on-the-fly a specific, spoken answer to almost any question.    Caesar combines technology from Second Life Viewer 2, Google Translate®, a licensed Wolfram-Alpha.com API interface,  a Pandora bot, and interactive faces from Sitepal.com.
