Star Labs introduced “Artificial Human” named NEON, at the world’s largest consumer electronics show. Star Labs is funded by Samsung. The “artificial human” that the startup company introduced are similar in appearance to humans. According to the company, artificial humans are also able to “talk and express sympathy” like humans.
At the Consumer Electronics Show, Humans made with artificial intelligence, AI technology, and talks and gestures were also displayed. California-based startup Star Labs is a subsidiary unit of South Korean company Samsung.
With the help of this technology, such digital beings can be created, which can be seen in the display or video games or can be designed like a TV anchor, spokesperson, film artist or partner and friend. Star Labs CEO Pranav Mistry says that these AI are built on human models in a way and they can show very detailed expressions. The company has named “Artificial Human” as ‘NEON’. According to Mistry, the nature of AI model can also be programmed.
According to the India-born Mistry “They look like humans because their model is designed on the lines of humans.” Mistry says AI Human can also speak a language that no person has ever spoken because he has the facility to program it. Mistry says that creating such digital beings is like a magic and he wants to share this magic with the world.
According to Star Labs NEON are inspired by humans and they are trained to look, behave and interact like humans. Although digital avatars have been programmed for such a long time that they can do special work, Neon is capable of interacting with the spirit like humans moving beyond that.
The company says that artificial human can take the characteristics of real people and each neon can create its new movements and dialogues. But this invention did not impress everyone. Ben Wood of Consultancy CCS Insight tweeted that he was not excited to see Neon. He said that looking at Neon, it seems that he is a video of the artists.
At the same time Mistry says that “no one can access its basic technology and we are working on this technique at the ground level”. Mistry has not revealed the business model of the company but said that partner companies can use these avatars for many services. Mistry born in India is known for developing Sixth Sense. Mistry has contributed to develop gestural technology system.
