New Nvidia AI Tech Demo is rough, shows why real actors, artists and writers are irreplaceable

Recommended Posts

NVIDIA recently showed off it's tech demo of its generative AI during the GTC AI conference. The new tech demo was titled Covert Protocol, and shows the Nvidia Ace technology in action on character faces in game. They partnered with Inworld AI to produce the demo. The tech is meant to bring digital characters to life with AI assisted animation. The facial work was assisted by Nvidia Audio2Face, while the speech was done with the help of Nvidia Riva automatic speech recognition and text-to-speech. As you can see in the video below, the results are a mixed bad.

A cool thing about it, is that they're releasing the source code for free so anyone can play with it. So they could improve upon the animation, and other aspects of the AI. 

Techraptor has an interesting article about it here: https://techraptor.net/gaming/news/nvidia-ai-demo-unwittingly-proves-that-human-voice-actors-artists-and-writers-are

It discusses how this tech demo proves that real actors, artists and writers are irreplaceable in the world of gaming. Sure these AI tools will get better, but it will never be perfect enough to where it can replicate the passion behind the acting, writing, and the art.
