Neon project at CES 2020.
Neon project leader, human-computer interaction researcher Paranav Mistry, posted a tweet showing one of the avatars. Samsung claims that the "Core R3" technology will be able to independently create new expressions, movements, dialogues, completely different from the originally captured data.
Flying to CES tomorrow, and the code is finally working 🙂 Ready to demo CORE R3. It can now autonomously create new expressions, new movements, new dialog (even in Hindi), completely different from the original captured data. pic.twitter.com/EPAJJrLyjd

Unlisted video downloaded from the source code of the project website revealed even more information. The videos were originally published on Reddit and can now be viewed on YouTube. The possibilities of the presented technology look really impressive.
It is possible that this is what the future looks like in many industries. Realistic human avatars can ultimately be used for entertainment and business purposes as guides, receptionists and TV presenters.
