三星公布“人造人”项目:类似真人,可以表达情感

浙江11选5_[官网首页]三星全新的神秘项目Neon终于揭开面纱。

据悉,这种人形AI聊天机器人由三星技术和高级研究实验室(又名STAR Labs)开发。

该公司将其Neon技术描述为“通过计算创建的虚拟人,其外观和行为类似于真实的人类,并具有表达情感和智慧的能力。”

“Neon is like a new kind of life,” says STAR Labs CEO Pranav Mistry in the release. “There are millions of species on our planet and we hope to add one more.”

“Neon就像是一种新的生命,” STAR Labs首席执行官普拉纳夫•米思特里在发布中说道。“我们星球上有数以百万计的物种,我们希望再增加一个。”

Each Neon avatar is “computationally generated” and will hold conversations with users while displaying “emotions and intelligence,” says the company. Their likenesses are modeled after real humans, but have newly generated “expressions, dialogs, and emotion.” Each avatar (known individually as “NEONs”) can be customized for different tasks, and is able to respond to queries “with latency of less than a few milliseconds.” They’re not intended to be just visual skins for AI assistants, but put to more varying uses instead:

该公司表示,每个Neon分身都是“计算生成的”,将与用户进行对话,同时显示“情感和智慧”。Neon分身的相似之处是按照真实的人类建模的,但是具有新生成的“表情,对话和情

感”。浙江11选5_[官网首页]每个分身(分别都被称为“ NEON”)都可以针对不同的任务进行定制,并且能够在几毫秒内“以更少的延迟响应查询”。它们不只是有了视觉外观的AI助手,而是被用于更多用途之中:

“In the near future, one will be able to license or subscribe to a NEON as a service representative, a financial advisor, a healthcare provider, or a concierge. Over time, NEONs will work as TV anchors, spokespeople, or movie actors; or they can simply be companions and friends.”

“在不久的将来,人们将能够授权或订阅Neon作为服务代表、财务顾问、医疗保健提供者或礼宾。随着时间的推移,Neon将充当电视节目主持人、代言人或电影演员;或者他们可以只是人类的伙伴和朋友。”

In its PR, the company veers into strange territory is in its description of the avatars’ underlying technology. It says it’s using proprietary software called “Core R3” to create the avatars, and that its approach is “fundamentally different from deepfake or other facial reanimation techniques.” But it doesn’t say how the software does work, and instead relies on wishy-washy assurances that Core R3 “creates new realities.” We’d much rather know if the company is using, say, high-resolution video captures pinned onto 3D models or AI to generate facial movements — whatever the case may be.
在公关中,该公司转向了一个陌生领域——在其描述中的分身基础技术。浙江11选5_[官网首页]该公司称其正在使用名为“Core R3”的专有软件来创建分身,并且其方法“与Deepfake或其他面部模拟技术有根本不同。”但STAR Lab并未说明该软件如何工作,而是依赖于空泛地保证Core R3“创造了新的现实”。我们更想知道该公司是否在3D模型或人工智能上使用所谓的高分辨率视频捕获技术来生成面部表情——无论实例是什么。
