The Uncanny Valley is close!

The Uncanny Valley is close!

Readers of our blog out there will remember a piece we posted a few weeks back about the concept of ‘the uncanny valley’, and I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s pretty darn weird in action!

But with computer graphics rapidly improving, it’s only inevitable that we are to be encountered with this phenomenon on a more regular basis in the future. Here we have a tech demo from Nvida, in which co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang discusses the very concept on ‘the uncanny valley’, and in its second half, proceeds to exhibit the results of its ‘Face works’ technology, which renders realistic human faces running on the GeForce GTX TITAN GPU.


Skip to 8:43 for the demo!
