NVIDIA Creates First Artificial Intelligence Rendered Virtual World

December 3, 2018

This is a brief video tour of an interactive virtual world that was rendered entirely by an artificial intelligence system after it was trained using a bunch of real world footage of cars driving around various cities. It's pretty impressive. "Do you even have any clue what you're talking about?" Grand Theft Auto VI, obviously.

Keep going for the video, complete with a bonus clip of a guy who was AI rendered using the same technology to perform the Gangnam Style dance because he wouldn't in real life.

Thanks to Carsten, who agrees virtual worlds are the best worlds. Heck yeah *boots up Second Life*

    Great, now we can sit in traffic in video games too! YAY!

    The only reason this is scary is when you're on the computer. Once you walk outside and interact with nature and other people, you realize that chaos, stupidity, people with uncontrollable issues, the randomness of nature itself will always end up trumping anything created by any sentience that is not human. We are, and always will be, the most perfect creation. We will always be unable to create anything more perfect than that which it took the universe in all it's immeasurable time, space and failures, to create. It's all going to be OK, until some random asshole decides to purposefully weaponize bots to methodically hunt us down and kill us so they can be king of the world until everything goes dark and collapses and the robots are sick of his shit.

    The ISIS version automatically drives rented vans on sidewalks into crowds.

    There's something with the back of that bus that just doesn't feel right

    Since we are already in a simulation, this is going to end up being some Inception type shit.

  • No, it'll be like The 13th Floor.

    Does time go slower inside the... uh... universe battery? Thing?

    It's not enough we had to worry about these guys building Skynet - now they're building the friggin Matrix!

    Have you seen the new IBM drone kits they have just released ?

    Programmable drones that don't need direct control, and they have access to face recognition that you can train by feeding it images. You can program the drones to fly about and recognize people it's searching for. And then presumably never ever do anything bad at that point. Never.

    I'm not entirely sure where they think this is going to go.

    But if that's not the building blocks for a hunter killer drone, I don't know what is.

    OMG - you should totally write their advertisement! You have a knack for the words!
