SenseTime (商汤科技, 00020.HK), one of China’s AI powerhouses, announced on Friday that it had been chosen as the exclusive smart visual AI service provider for the upcoming 19th Asian Games.
The AI firm looks to leverage a combination of AI and AR technologies to offer an immersive experience for both match-goers and athletes in Hangzhou, where the Games will be held from September 23 to October 8.
SenseTime added it planned to achieve this purpose through virtual recreations of multiple physical scenarios.
Powered by SenseTime’s AI mega-contraption SenseCore and its large language model SenseNova, a 3D platform called SenseSpace is able to reconstruct large urban spaces with high-precision digital technologies.
As a result, digital replicas of street views and sports facilities can be created, with a precision down to centimeter, and viewed with low latency.
SenseTime said its platform is capable of autonomously creating a 3D duplicate of the real thing on the basis of images and video captured by full view camera and drones — within several hours.
This stands in contrast to the previous practice, where the same type and amount of artificial modeling could have taken weeks and even months, SenseTime said.
