Unfortunately, the NEON avatars were real people rather than CGI. Nothing to see here. Move along please.

One of the videos does show however a very poor quality lip sync demo, so as far as I can tell this is the same thing as last year's digital Chinese anchorman: Real life footage with only a generated mouth transposed. That is, I know this is possible, but I can't tell from the surface whether the mouth was generated with AI (which usually has a more blurry effect) or just photos manually mapped to vowels. Any more confirmation on this?
CO2 retains heat. More CO2 in the air = hotter climate.

Came across this today: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/samsung-neon-artificial-humans-are-confusing-everyone-we-set-record-straight/

Entitled "Samsung's Neon 'artificial humans' are confusing everyone. We set the record straight".

These next-gen AI chatbots promise to keep your secrets, teach you yoga and help you find a great restaurant. Just don't ask about the weather.

A robot that brings you more toilet paper when you run out. Samsung's softball-shaped robot named Ballie. Of all the digital pals shown off at CES last week, none were quite as uncanny as Neon, the humanlike "life form" funded by a Samsung lab (but don't confuse it with a Samsung product). In a practical sense, consider it a chatbot with a human face and personality.
