The company Soul Machines, based in Auckland, New Zealand, has a unique approach to creating virtual humans. Their hyper-realistic “BabyX” is not merely the result of advanced 3D digital rendering.
Rather, BabyX has been built layer by layer—brain with bloody eyeballs attached, full neural system, and so on. The brain itself is structured to mimic a human brain—possessing a basal ganglia, an amygdala, the thalamus, and so on. Taking a more granular view, the brain chemistry operates on the interaction of virtual serotonin, oxytocin, and dopamine.
