We propose HeadOn, the first real-time source-to-target reenactment approach for complete human portrait videos that enables transfer of torso and head motion, face expression, and eye gaze. Given a short RGB-D video of the target actor, we automatically construct a personalized geometry proxy that embeds a parametric head, eye, and kinematic torso model.
Real life Virtual avatars are coming alive. You could be dressed as a bum but look sharp too. This is only the beginning. :)

The paper "HeadOn: Real-time Reenactment of Human Portrait Videos" is available here:

We are in the age of AI development. We are passed the information age. Everything you want is available on the internet, you just have to know how to search it. While HeadOn offers great opportunities for the video game community, it also comes at a cost to many other industries. Impersonation is now real at an extreme level. We knew this was coming, but we can't predict all the uses/applications available.

Anybody else think "HEAD ON, APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD"?

This is creepy though...

Combine this with those Boston Dynamics walkers and you literally see the Terminators being built in like 10 years

the funny about this is the people behind these projects, you know they have seen the movies read the books, the Sci-fi genre has become mainstream enough for plausible deniability to have gone out the window. all of these people know exactly what they are doing and simply fail to see the correlation of the last ~60 years of Sci-fi "warnings" and the projects they are working on.
you start putting "thinking/learning" AI constructs into mobile platforms. its simply a matter of time. IDK about terminator level. but someone else has to think this is a bad idea. its only a matter of time before you start replacing standing armies with this kind of thing and give a mobile AI a gun.

My sentiments almost exactly.As exciting as this tech is,it will be used for negative purposes period. Like coreykill99 stateed IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME.

and that negativity will be depended upon the type of person and which generation. Remember, what is socially acceptable now won't be socially acceptable later.

I am not going to kid, but the human brain process data on a exa-scale calculation and the entire body (with brain) only consume 85W on average. ORC Summit Supercomputer on the other hand is only 1/5 as fast and consume 13-15 MW of power.


To be self aware and true AI, your CPU need to be able to wire and re-wire as and when you need just like Neurons do, and able to do it at an extreme efficient level. So we are still nowhere near Terminator kinda AI, not in 40 years at least (or till Quantum computer becomes a true replacement for static computers)

I read this a few weeks ago and thought it interesting as it has potential not necessarily for reduced power consumption for AI but for advanced humans with interfaces applied directly to the brain. It will be interesting to say the least where neuromorphic computing will be a decade from now.

“Compared to solid-state memristors, neuromorphic architectures based on stimuli-responsive biomolecules offer distinct advantages. Our self-assembled biomolecular memristors consume significantly less power (∼0.1−10 nW), and they are relatively inexpensive and easily scalable via droplet-based printingor microfluidic methods. Further, circuity based on stimuli-responsive ion channels offers the possibility for adaptive learning and memory, as well as sensing, of many types of physical and chemical stimulations, possibly even at the same time and in the same membrane.

“Thus, the results presented here forecast an alternative paradigm for neuromorphic hardware using materials that could be integrated into synthetic multifunctional structures and interfaced with bio- logical tissues to provide adaptive sensing, signal processing, smart edge computing, and memory.”
