Baby X: a glimpse into the future of human interaction
At the Auckland Bioengineering Institute Dr. Sagar is creating interactive autonomously animated systems which are defining the next generation of human-computer interaction and facial animation. His most recent and innovative work is called “Baby X” – a virtual baby face powered by artificial intelligence who, according to its creator, is able to interact with the world around her via a suite of sensors, allowing Baby X to mimic the reactions of a real life baby.
The face is just one of the possible applications, and the technology could also be used in advertising, learning or healthcare. A showcase installation has been recently shown at TEDx Auckland, here’s a video from it.
