SenseTime strives to bridge the physical and digital worlds in Translucia with its proprietary SenseMARS Avatar platform. SenseMARS Avatar will empower Translucia’s infrastructure with essential AI-generated content (AIGC) capabilities for avatar development, reinforcing the latter’s cornerstone of reinventing how people seamlessly connect, work and play in a digital space. The twin engines of SenseTime’s high-performing AIGC technology and Translucia’s vision of transforming businesses across sectors will propel a sustainable and interactive digital world that creates a positive Whole-of-Society impact.
