While AI is becoming more and more powerful, following Moore’s law, the level of interaction with AIs is While AI is becoming more and more powerful, following Moore’s law, the level of interaction with AIs is surprisingly stable. What if the missing part is not the computational power, but humanity? Even with solutions like shadow cloud gaming allowing every user to play on high-end hardware, nothing changes.
Social animals like humans need to interact with each other. During these interactions, humans try to extract emotional state from facial expressions, voice, or even body language, to adapt the response and smooth over the interaction. AIs are very smart, but simply lack humanity.
This is because the user’s emotions are not accounted for in the AI decision tree yet. The video game industry proposes the best use cases for AI now. OVOMIND is giving part of the human heart to AIs with its technology.
Emotions and AI: Starting with gaming, OVOMIND could possibly change the way we interact with AIs in our daily lives forever. Since its beginnings in the 70s until now, game AIs are “affective blind” and interact with players like machines, but not like human beings. Humans are emotional beings and emotions are the way we connect with each other. Video games are for us the most fascinating way to interact with machines.
