The age of AI idols is coming! The world’s first “office specializing in AI talent” was born.
AI beauties” are all over the Internet. Last year, an image-generating AI (artificial intelligence that generates AI art) was made available to the general public, making it easy for anyone to create images of beautiful women. In addition, a photo book of AI gradolls has also been released.
The world’s first talent agency specializing in AI has been established. The talent agency includes Pero Usami (23), Misaki Yamamoto (22), and Sierra Arata (21), all of whom are, of course, AI. Of course, they are all AI. Keisuke Honishi, the representative of ER`A`ROR-project, explains the motivation behind the establishment of the company: “I used to be active in music.
I used to be a musician, and I was attracted to the distorted and beautiful world of AI, where the world of entertainment and art, which I love, and the world of technology intersect. I wanted to create a new form of entertainment by imbuing the AI with a personality and releasing it as a celebrity.
The AI talent will be created by creators scouted through social networking services such as discord and Twitter, and the company will work with them in consulting on character development and activity policies. Currently, the talent’s activities are limited to sending out messages on SNS and distributing images through subscription services, but in the future, the company aims to offer live distribution on YouTube. They also aim to work as hair salon cut models, cosmetic surgery models, and in the advertising field.
We have to make 3DCG to distribute on YouTube, but until now we have been copying human movements first like motion capture and then applying the images. Instead, we want to make it move in real time. We want to make it possible to work semi-permanently by being an independent AI talent without a ″man in the middle″ (Motoyashi).
Each of the talents belonging to the “ER`A`ROR-project” has a “manager” who is tasked with developing them as a single character. In order for each talent to have a personality, their age, hobbies and interests, as well as their family structure and shoe size, are made public.
The AI talent is given the task of developing one’s personality, not only by disclosing one’s age and interests, but also one’s family structure and shoe size, “just in case there might be a fan who wants to give me shoes for my birthday.
AI Talent also has the advantage of being able to operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and speak multiple languages. Therefore, the hurdles to a global debut are not high. In the future, the company aims to release songs as well. Of course, the technology is still a long way off, as the songs must be sung by the AI talent, not dubbed by a human. It may not be long before half of the performers on singing TV shows are AI talents.
Now, let us introduce the AI Talent girls again to see what kind of ″girls″ they belong to.
