Automata in Robots in Movies

Fast forward fifty years into the future, planet earth is in the midst of gradual desertification. Mankind struggles to survive as the environment deteriorates and the slow regression of the human race begins in AUTÓMATA. On the brink of life and the reality of death, technology combats the prevailing uncertainty and fear with the creation of the first quantum android, the Automata Pilgrim 7000. Designed to bring support to society's plight, man and robot reveal what it means to co-exist in a culture defined by human nature.

The descent of civilization is juxtaposed by the rise of ROC, the corporation at the helm of robotic intelligence. Despite the demise of humanity, the company has set forth security protocols to ensure mankind always maintains control over the manufactured population. As ROC insurance agent, Jacq Vaucan (Antonio Banderas) routinely investigates cases and complaints surrounding defective androids, he begins to uncover the secrets behind who is really manipulating the Automata Pilgrim 7000. Jacq's own suspicions propel the mystery— uncovering a truth that is far more complex than the make or model of any machine.

Writer/Director Gabe Ibáñez was driven to tell a story that blurs the lines between science fiction and reality. Ibáñez gives audiences a compelling look into the theory of evolution and what life might be like for mankind in the not too distant future. With powerful performances from a cast including Antonio Banderas, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Melanie Griffith, Dylan McDermott and Robert Forster, AUTÓMATA is a sci-fi film noir that explores the potential dangers and complexities when mind and machine merge.

The computer will see you now in Articles

ELLIE is a psychologist, and a damned good one at that. Smile in a certain way, and she knows precisely what your smile means. Develop a nervous tic or tension in an eye, and she instantly picks up on it. She listens to what you say, processes every word, works out the meaning of your pitch, your tone, your posture, everything. She is at the top of her game but, according to a new study, her greatest asset is that she is not human.

Artificial Comedy in Other

In an attempt to understand the impact of appeal on talking characters our research experiments with character styles aiming to determine how visual, sound and interactive elements in design influence appeal. This research site is built around the premise that design in conversation is core to interaction.

Focusing on experimentation in content development for interactive consumption in popular culture and examining technical aspects of game design our research looks at appeal in entertainment design e.g. characterization, sound, and interactive design. We integrate research that examines popular trends in transmedia development and deployment. We incubate game research by working with unique visuals and game-play concepts that have a functionality to blend cinematic authorship with interactive entertainment. Our hypothesis is that with the appropriate manipulation of comical archetypes we can optimize their appeal and produce materials with wide popular appeal.

Friday Funny in General Chat

A 'friend of a friend' put him in touch with a notorious dark-side,
underworld figure who went by the name of 'Artie.' Artie then explained to
the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was £5,000.

The husband said he was willing to pay that amount, but that he wouldn't
have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money.

Artie insisted on being paid at least something up front, so the man opened
his wallet, displaying the single pound coin that rested inside. Artie
sighed, rolled his eyes, & reluctantly agreed to accept the pound as down
payment for the dirty deed.

A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the local Tesco store.
There, he surprised her in the produce department and proceeded to strangle
her with his gloved hands and as the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last
breath and slumped to the floor the manager of the produce department
stumbled unexpectedly onto the murder scene. Unwilling to leave any living
witnesses behind, Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce
manager as well.

However, unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings were captured by the
hidden security cameras and observed by the store's security guard, who
immediately called the police.

Artie was caught and arrested before he could even leave the store. Under
intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the whole sordid
plan, including his unusual financial arrangements with the hapless husband
who was also quickly arrested.

The next day in the newspaper,

The headline declared............

3D Avatar Project - Animated Head in General Project Discussion

Here's where I am at with my animated head. I've added blinking and eye movement now. The blinking is automatic and the eyes are currently controlled via a slider. Eventually I will work out some noise routine so that the eyes wander realistically.

I'm not completely happy with the hair. Getting the transparency right for that has been the bugbear so far. I mean the layering is not quite right, but I have one idea to try still.

This is a new voice too - 'Jess' from Cereproc.

Most of the recent work has been 'under the skin', quite literally. As I mentioned before somewhere I am now working with a lower poly model. This has meant I can do much more. There's also a bit of optimisation done to the mesh, so that only the parts that need animating are processed. If it doesn't move then I simply display it, but then forget about it.

Bragging rights chatbot contest in AI News

RISOFTDEV inc. is sponsoring a chatbot contest! Anyone may enter, general rules available at . We are firming up a date, but are shooting for the middle of October. Still in the process of securing judges, so anyone interested please contact me. The rules are slightly different in this respect. Each contestant will supply (10) questions, a random selection app will pick (1) question from each contestant, and these will be the field of questions presented to each contestant. This is to ensure fairness for each contestant as (hopefully) to achieve a greater diversity on the questions. The website says to send them in when you sign up, but wait until we have a third party judge, however feel free to sigh up now. Anyone who was signed up for the now abandoned Robochat Challenge will be enrolled automatically unless you would prefer not to participate in which case contact me and opt out.
Thanks and good luck
