Today is April first also known as April Fools’ Day, and so whatever news I’m reading I must regard it could be a joke! Could the new smart speaker with amazing AI known as R.O.N. be an April Fools’ Day joke? I think it’s highly that this new announcement from Nvidia is an April Fools’ Day joke!
If R.O.N. is an April Fools’ Day joke, then I think Nvidia should take their joke more seriously! How come? Although I’m no longer a prolific gamer, but I do have a few urges here and there to fire up a new game from time to time. I could totally see myself wanting to communicate with R.O.N. when I need to play a new game because R.O.N. could give me tips on how to master a new game. According to the video above, R.O.N. could even do a rage conversion which means if I’m angry R.O.N. could tell the gamer world that I’m happy! Anyhow, I think it’s a fantastical idea and the holographic touch is just ice on the cake! Nvidia should develop this joke into a real product!
NVIDIA’s AI is now able to generate countless realistic human faces, and you probably cannot tell if these faces are fake or real. Watch the video right after the break, and you will see what I mean. Basically, from the algorithm, the AI is able to morph a female face into a male face seamlessly. Look closely, you can tell the latter does resemble the former a bit, but you can also tell it’s indeed a male face and not a female face.
This technology can definitely fake an image, video, and whatnot of a real human being. With bad intention, someone could definitely frame a person in a sex scandal or whatnot. So, how can you be sure that what your eyes are seeing is actually a factual event?
Just another episode of my gameplay for Rise of the Tomb Raider in 4K resolution. NVIDIA’s Pure Hair and graphics settings are at maximum. (Note: I just uploaded this 4K video, it may take awhile before YouTube could completely encode this video into their 4K format.)

PC gamers know that each game behaves differently on their PC, because each game might need a different configuration for game graphics settings. Using the wrong game graphics settings sometimes might actually choke the graphic card, therefore choking a great game experience. Usually, PC gamers would do is to figure out if their graphic card supports a game they want to play or not before they purchase the game. Afterward, they want to seek out the correct game graphics settings for the game from the Internet or from testing out different game graphics settings configurations through trial and error process, and then right just before they play their brand new game they would apply the best or I should say the optimal graphics settings for the game.
The second process where gamers have to apply the correct game graphics settings can be ranged from easy to sometimes plain confusing. How come? Some games might work well with just about any game graphics settings if you have the right graphic card, but some games might not. When a game might not react that well to your graphic card or game graphics settings, you have to either tinker with the graphic card by overclocking or know how to tone down the game graphics settings. So, getting an optimal game graphics settings for each game can sometimes be troublesome and time consuming. This is why I like GeForce Experience. You might like it too if you have a NVIDIA graphic card.
What GeForce Experience does is to automatically optimize game graphics settings for many games that you have installed on your PC. It’s a beta version at we speak, but it’s working out rather well for my PC and PC gaming experience. Check out the video right after the break to have a quick look at the GeForce Experience.
