Samsung to reveal its artificial human lifelike neon project Article

Samsung will unveil its "artificial human" project at an Electronics Show today (Monday).


Pranav Mistry, the project chief, has posted a teaser showing Neon is an effort to create lifelike avatars. These realistic creatures are designed on the basis of "captured data, they can speak in several languages, and even produce their own movements and behavior. A Reddit user has also mentioned finding a series of promo videos that give us further insight into the project. The videos have now been deleted but they have shown a group of human-like avatars that appeared convincing as they were alive.

Ministry said it was possible to use such digital beings as virtual anchors, as receptionists, and even as AI movie stars. "While films may disrupt our sense of reality, for 'virtual humans' or 'digital humans' it will be a reality," he said to an Indian news release.

In a tweet he wrote that a Core R3 technology "can now autonomously generate new words, new movements, new dialog (even in Hindi), totally different from the data originally captured." He added a picture of a woman in the tweet.

That brings up a lot of questions. Are those characters an addition to the 2D avatar or are they 3D? How is it that people get Neon to see the world? Samsung will potentially make some announcements but we can't say we'll get all the answers.

On Sunday, Mistry tweeted that the Core R3 technology "can now autonomously generate new phrases, new movements, new dialog (even in Hindi), totally different from the original data captured." It included a side-by-side image of a woman, overlaid with code and other graphics.
