What Will Be the Next Big Tech Wave? Lawmakers are concerned that Generative AI will be a repeat of social media.
Latent Technology, an AI start-up based in the United Kingdom, has raised $2.1 million in pre-seed funding to bring generative AI to the video game industry. Based on reinforcement learning, the AI technology allows video game characters to react to anything that happens in the game, eliminating the need for manual animation of every possible body motion and angle. The company’s goal is to make it easier and less expensive for video game developers to create video games. According to the CEO, Jorge del Val Santos, while generative AI may become more widely used, some game developers will always prefer complete control over the creative process. In 18 to 24 months, the company intends to release a demo in collaboration with a gaming company.
