For those who are tired of searching a job for livelihood, here’s a good way to pool in a lumpy amount of money into your pocket, by letting this robot-making firm to use your face on their robots.
The tech company, ‘Promobot’ is willing to pay ₹1.5 Crores to anyone who hands over the right to their face for human-looking robots. Literally, you could do what Vaseegaran did to Chitti (untechnical) in Endhiran and earn, not the Actor Rajnikanth’s salary, but a huge-y decent amount.
This tech firm named Promobot is gearing up to launch a new line of human-looking robots, but they want them to have a friendly face. Instead of creating a range of computer-generated faces for the bots, they find it more appealing for actual human faces, claiming it more friendly in nature.
The company said it is hunting for a ‘kind and friendly’ appearance, but they will be open to applications from people of all races and genders, though you’ll have to be over the age of 25.
Promobot on its website, “Our company is developing technologies in the field of facial recognition, as well speech, autonomous navigation, artificial intelligence and other areas of robotics.”
Promobot is hoping to launch their robots in hotels, shopping centres and airports in North America and the Middle East from 2023.
The winning applicant will first have to take a 3D model of their face and body for the robot’s external features. Then ‘you will have to dictate at least 100 hours of speech material to copy your voice’, which will then be used by the machine to communicate with customers.
After that, the winning applicant will have to ‘sign a license agreement’ that allows ‘the use of your appearance for an unlimited period”. So colloquially, you would be creating your own robot face and rewarded with ₹1.5 Crores. Doesn’t that sound great?
