Cloud Ginger xr1: The Revolutionary Humanoid AI Robot
Cloud Ginger xr1 is a revolutionary humanoid AI robot that is changing the game in the robotics industry. At the cost of over $170,000 each, the Cloud Ginger xr1 is a 5G connected robot designed to augment the service sector, such as in areas of reception, tour guidance, help centers, group dance interpretation, business processing, elderly companionship, teaching, and scientific research.
The robot is equipped with over 30 smart and flexible actuators, with industry-leading artificial intelligence powering its intelligent grasping, hand-eye coordination, all-round multilingual listening, understanding, and speaking, as well as its computer vision and mobility systems. The intelligent design of the robot allows it to sing, dance, intelligently hold and manipulate objects autonomously, navigate and avoid obstacles, and balance itself in shifting terrains and environments.
The Cloud Ginger xr1 AI robot was re-engineered to now have 34 degrees of freedom in its intelligent flexible joints, which are found throughout its neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, waist, knees, and chassis. Its artificial intelligence for environmental understanding includes multi-layer 3D perception, multiple 2D and 3D cameras, lidar, ultrasonic sensing, inertial measurement, force sensing, and more. The robot’s cloud brain gives it a fusion of artificial intelligence algorithms based on a real-time multimodal deep learning approach that powers its decision-making process.
Computer Vision Tasks
These separate artificial intelligence modules give the robot the ability to execute a wide range of computer vision tasks, including 2D object detection and recognition for gestures, faces, and emotions. It also uses 3D depth detection to process visual feedback for building 3D maps to avoid obstacles while in motion, grasp objects with its hands, and run simultaneous localization and mapping operations to understand its environment. Other artificial intelligence modules include natural language processing for understanding and speaking in multiple languages, rich vertical domain knowledge for service tasks, and multi-machine collaboration using its cloud brain business scheduling platform.
Wide Range of Customers
The Cloud Ginger xr1 robot is 158 centimeters tall, five feet, and weighs 65 kilograms, 143 pounds. It includes a robot development toolkit to fine-tune its artificial intelligence modules and allows for easy peripheral device integration to expand its hardware capabilities. The robot comes in three different versions, the first being the star version, the second being the pad version, and the third being the butterfly version, all of which employ 4G and 5G communications technology to intelligently transmit information to various cloud-based devices across the Internet of Things economy.
Other 5G Connected Devices
Some of these other 5G connected devices powered by artificial intelligence include the Cloud Ginger light D series of multi-function delivery robots, Cloud Patrol robots, disinfection robots, and more.
New Nvidia AI Model
A new artificial intelligence model named get 3D from Nvidia research makes it easier to populate Virtual Worlds with a variety of 3D vehicles, characters, and buildings. The model is trained using only 2D images but generates 3D shapes with High Fidelity textures and complex geometric details. Get 3D gets its name from its ability to generate explicit textured 3D meshes, meaning that the shapes it creates are in the form of a triangle mesh, like a paper mache model covered with a textured material. This lets users easily import the objects into game engines, 3D modelers, and film renderers to edit them.
Once creators export get 3D generated shapes to a graphics application, they can apply realistic lighting effects for when the object moves or rotates in a scene. By incorporating another artificial intelligence tool from Nvidia called StyleGAN NADA, developers can use text prompts to add a specific style to an image, such as modifying a rendered car to become burned or turning a regular house into a haunted one.
Open AI Open Sources Whisper
A neural network approaching human-level robustness and accuracy for English speech recognition, Whisper from Open AI, is an automated speech recognition system that was trained using 680,000 hours of multilingual multitask supervised data from the internet. Whisper is open source, meaning that anyone will be able to use it freely, unlike most of the models from Open AI.
The Whisper architecture is a simple end-to-end approach that can be used as an encoder-decoder transformer. The input audio is divided into chunks of 30 seconds duration, converted to a log-mel spectrogram, and then passed onto an encoder. The decoder is trained to predict the text caption, and special tokens are added to direct the single model to perform tasks like language identification, phrase-level timestamps, and multilingual speech transcription.
Smart Micro Robots
Cornell University researchers installed electronic brains on solar-powered robots measuring 100 to 250 micrometers in length, which is smaller than an ant’s head and can, therefore, walk independently without external control. The most recent innovation opens the door to a new generation of microscopic devices, which can detect bacteria, remove pollutants, perform microsurgery, and even clean out plaque from clogged arteries. The paper named ‘Microscopic Robots with Onboard Digital Control’ was published in Science Robotics by the team earlier this month.
Cloud Ginger xr1 humanoid AI robot is truly a revolutionary technological innovation that is changing the game in the robotics industry. Its intelligent design, artificial intelligence, computer vision tasks, and wide range of customers make it suitable for deployment across a vast range of service sectors. In addition, other 5G connected devices like the Cloud Ginger light D series of multi-function delivery robots, Cloud Patrol robots, disinfection robots, and more are powered by artificial intelligence. It is only a matter of time before we fully integrate these devices into all aspects of our lives, making our daily activities easier, safer, and more efficient.
