【人类还是机器人?CES上的尝试】

【人类还是机器人?CES上的尝试】一名视频导演 Karen X Cheng 出现在 CES 展会上,假装是机器人,并冠以 “3D 打印皮肤纹理技术” 的假名字。大多数人最初会对其表示怀疑,但好友装模做样的远程控制和她模拟机器人的动作使人们逐渐信服,甚至展开评论。视频最后,她摘下眼镜并说出真相,这样的行为也引起了广泛的讨论。而在不久的将来,机器人的外表又是否会真的完全与人类一般无二呢?

Can YOU tell if this is a human or a robot? Visitors at major technology show are left stumped

By ABIGAIL BEALL FOR MAILONLINE

Improvements in technology mean robots are becoming eerily life-like - to the extent that now, people cannot tell the two apart.

Karen X Cheng, a 'viral video director', went to the CES conference in Las Vegas earlier this month and pretended to be a robot.

She was so convincing, or perhaps robots are so lifelike, that people believed her.

I've done robot dances before as performances, but we thought it would be funny to do at a tech conference where people are expecting the latest in robot technology,' Ms Cheng told MailOnline.

'Honestly I wasn't sure if we would be able to fool anyone, but we managed to convince a few people!

'It just goes to show how far robotics technology has come.'

She posted the video of herself pretending to be a robot on her Facebook page.

Most people at the conference were skeptical at first, so to make it seem more convincing her friend pretended he was controlling her, with a remote attached to by a fake wire.

'People would go up to him asking him "she's a human, right??" and he would say very convincingly "Actually we're demonstrating our realistic 3D printing skin texture technology" and then people started believing him,' Ms Cheng told MailOnline.

After the wires were attached, people started to seem convinced, and even commented on how real her skin looked.

'Probably the most fun part was when people wanted to try the keypad he was using to "control" me' she added.

'I would watch what buttons they pressed on the keypad out of the corner of my eye and move my body accordingly.'

'Quite a few people tried to touch me to see if I was real (which probably would have given it away), so he told people "Please don't touch her, there is a lot of static because of the carpet, people are getting shocked. It's for your safety"' Ms Cheng said.

Some viewers were amazed by how robot-like she seemed. 'I honestly can't tell,' said one conference attendee in the video. Others, however, were not as convinced.

'You have to be an idiot if you can't tell the difference,' said one viewer on her Facebook page.

At the end of the video, she surprises onlookers by taking off her glasses and laughing.

Having previously learned how to dance over the course of one year, Ms Cheng is no stranger to learning new dance moves.

Ms Cheng said her viral video, posted in 2013, on how to learn to dance helped her become a convincing robot.

'I've definitely watched a lot of YouTube videos of robots to see how they move,' she added.
