Okay, the title is a bit of a stretch; a better analogy might be the virtual title character of the movie S1m0ne, starring Al Pacino. But Zoe isn’t an AI, or at least not one you’d mistake for being an artificial life form (so far), just a collection of 3D scans and audio recordings of British television actress Zoë Lister speaking a collection of short scripts with various inflections, as from several different emotional states, which have been fed into Toshiba’s Cluster Adaptive Training (CAT) algorithm. The project is a collaboration between Toshiba Research and the University of Cambridge.
