My Top AI Highlight:

Realistic Humanoid Robots

You may have seen the recent video from Engineered Arts showcasing a new, very expressive humanoid robot design named Ameca. The design may have the best facial expression capabilities ever created on a robotic face.

The video below explores the potential for combining the current state of the art of robotics, animation, and conversational artificial intelligence to create the most realistic humanoid robot that we could today.

The video has some amazing demos of GPT-3 conversation and robotics from Disney you may not have seen before!
