Robot maker Promobot is looking for people who are willing to lend their faces. The volunteers will be able to sell the license of their face for a large reward of $ 200,000. The faces sold will then be attributed to humanoid robots which will be marketed by 2023. They will be used in hotels, restaurants, supermarkets, etc.
Humanoid robots are, for the most part, people from the future. They are made to perform professional tasks by copying the gestures and behaviors of human beings. In addition to their affordable cost, the work they do mechanically is qualitative. This price-performance ratio and the automation innovation they show make them coveted.
Today, humanoid robots are used in several fields such as inspection, maintenance and more. They try to meet the needs of men, lighten their workload and limit the risks associated with occupational accidents.
Robots with all-human faces?
The humanoid robots offered by the firm Promobot are already marketed for in more than 45 countries around the world. They play and are assigned to several jobs such as guiding, janitorial, consultations, etc. The company wants to be scalable and has expressed its desire to expand its business sector. She actively works to develop new technologies related to Artificial Intelligence (AI), voice assistance, facial recognition, etc.
The company has been in the field for a few years and it is only progressing. As part of this new project, she signed an agreement with an American company . To make it happen, Promobot encourages anyone of any age and gender to volunteer to lend their face to technology.
Some conditions for volunteers
The name of the company’s client is still unknown. Its aim would be to use these controlled robots in malls, airports and stores in North America and the Middle East. The deployment would be scheduled for the year 2023 .
Promobot stressed that it will create 3D models of the faces and bodies of those who have expressed a desire to subscribe to its offer. Those who are selected will be required to sign an agreement that will allow the company to use their appearances and voices for an unlimited period of time . They will also have to perform dictation sessions to feed the vocal material so that the robots can then copy them.
