Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc. and the Institute of Language Understanding Inc. (Artificial Intelligence) jointly developed ‘Project Samantha’, and started a beta test phase in which you can communicate with its fictional character. The beta phase will be active for a limited time (August 4-15) on the social network ‘pixiv‘.
‘Project Samantha’ uses your personal data to feed information to its AI. It then lets you try conversing with its fictional characters.
The currently-running beta service features ‘Batou Syoujo(abusive girl)’ Motoko. She was created by the art production company KaiKai Kiki Co. and she was illustrated by mebae.
The popular voice actor Marina Inoue (who also voiced Iku Kasahara in Library War and Armin Arlert in Attack of Titan) will be Motoko’s voice.
