AI of Your Character ...

I've read the resumes of some of you guys in the volunteer forum.

 

I know we've got our fair share of cutting edge geniuses, geniii or whatever the word is. Have you guys done this with your characters yet?

 

Here is a video... AI is turning characters into realistic faces.

 

 

So how long before we get shader-like software (you know, it sits on top of your game, filtering it) that makes video game faces into realistic ones?

This one was made from my character I played in a Neverwinter Nights 2 Persistent world with source image for comparison.

Hmm, I didn't bring him over to Homecoming, but I had a character in the Original Game that I'd spent a notable amount of time tweaking the facial sliders to get it just right, and managed to get a fairly good representation of my face from college days, at least, what could be done within the limits of the game.  I'd be very curious to see what the outcome would be if a program retro-engineered it from game face to pseudo-lifelike.

Are we really so complacent and inured to the daily onslaught of AI monstrosities that we're now functionally immune to the horrors of the Uncanny Valley anymore?

I will never understand the "only buffs, no nerfs" crowd. Only being satisfied with an "I Win" button is no way to balance anything.

The whole Uncanny Valley thing has always hit some people harder than others... I've noticed that a lot with the photographs of my ball-jointed dolls. Reactions vary across the whole spectrum, from "Hey, those are cool" to "OMGNo! Get those creepy things away from me!".

 

I'd be surprised, based on that, if we all had the same reaction to the CG images or realistic animations. 

 

Me? Those images cause no discomfort at all... The only similar thing that's ever freaked me out even a little was the Red Queen from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movies. Her huge head really bothered me for some reason.  Doll-wise the only ones that give me the heebies are Reborns. Those hit me pretty hard, so I *do* understand the feeling.

Taker of screenshots. Player of creepy Oranbegans and Rularuu bird-things.

Eh... it's just using an algorithm. The one I used is a website called Artbreeder, and basically it just turns everything into filters. You can look at things I have done here. Warning. I have made THOUSANDS of images. When it brings an image in, it recreates it. That's why my NWN2 character is missing hair buns, because the AI doesn't know how to recreate them. But then once the image is processed it can be manipulated in lots of ways. 

 

Here's something a bit different. Craiyon, which is based on the code from Dall-E Mini, creates images by searching the internet. Here is an example.

Is it just me or does the top image look similar to Mary Elizabeth Winstead?

Not sure. It took me a while to get from the bottom image to the top. The hard part was trying to make the hair look like some sort of hairstyle that could exist.

Uncanny valley is really subjective though. Think of cabbage patch dolls. Quite obviously, a good portion of the population found them to be cute and endearing, while others found them hideous. But... let's start going back decade by decade, because Creepy Dolls were a meme long before the 80s.

The image on the right looks like Rick from Pawn Stars.  Bet he got the Infinity Gauntlet for like 30 dollars and some store credit.
