A Kiwi company developing artificial intelligence has delivered its latest digital human, called Rachel. Rachel can see, hear and respond to you. She is an avatar created by two-time Oscar winner Mark Sagar, who worked on the blockbuster movie of the same name. Mr Sagar, of Auckland-based company Soul Machines, says his aim is to make man socialise with machine, by putting a human face on artificial intelligence. “So what we are doing with Soul Machines is trying to build the central nervous system for humanising this kind of computer,” he says.
