Sensorium Creates Brand-New Approach to Conversational AI with Smart Avatars
What an amazing time to be alive. The changes in technology just keep getting more fantastic, doing things on screen that compete with real-life adventures when it comes to pure excitement. And when it comes to pc games, well, there are no limits to what can be dreamed up and turned into a game.
And the fantasy worlds being created today, especially if you are using one of the most sophisticated AI programs ever made available for individual users, then the sky is the limit. Of even another galaxy. According to a recent piece we found at pcgamers.com, there are new galaxies to explore. Making it more interesting than billionaires going to Mars.
Katie Wickens is a gamer and the author of this piece. She introduced a game she got to try out—and discovered it was everything it was advertised to be, and more.
Sensorium recently announced an artsy, digital experience know as the Sensorium Galaxy. Throughout this out-of-this-world, music-filled metaverse you can expect to be guided by some of “the most intelligent AI-driven NPCs to date,” according to a press release. Wickens said she goes into a little more detail about how these avatars work in her original post. The TL;DR is that it’s an ever-evolving AI companion, who will accompany you around as you explore the worlds of Prism, Motion, and the Sensorium Starship, playing minigames and whatever other tomfoolery your heart desires. You can even chat away on your phone, or in VR.
So having an AI companion to explore different galaxies with you would be very cool. Since the AI learns as it travels with you, it can carry on conversations that get more detailed over time. The conversations are kept secret in the interest of privacy and internet safety.
So by taking on a character from the movie Blade Runner, the author was able to run her own test on Sensorium’s new breed of AI. The Voight-Kampf test is meant to distinguish androids from humans. You will have to read the article to find out her results. Wickens finished her review of the galaxy with this:
“Thankfully I wasn’t shot in the process, unlike the guy in the movie. I suppose that’s a good sign, but I’ll let you decide for yourself if we should be erring on the side of caution.”
