FIRESIDE CHAT: The Real Chatbot Experience: AI Humans

Jan 26, 2022 · New York, United States of America

Join Disruptive Technologists' exciting Fireside Chat where attendees ask questions about Artificial Intelligence and “Real Person” chatbots.

AI Humans are interactive avatars with an external appearance just like a real human that can see, hear, and converse on a wide range of subjects - even with the ability to understand intent.

The hype about chatbots is increasing and with it, chatbot failure stories continue to get more visibility as well. Success stories are rare and ambitious conversational interface designers need to study them because, for every hundred failures, there are only a few successes in the public eye.

This event digs deeper into what makes a chatbot successful and how advances in artificial intelligence are driving the change. We will also speak to what that means not only for the future of customer service but also human interaction as well.

1. John Son - Strategic Planning Manager at DeepBrain AI

John was in the IT industry at LG Electronics as a B2B sales rep., developing his career as an account manager and a business development manager. But something was missing.

“I was inspired by Netflix’s “Black Mirror” and “Reface”, an application where you can swap faces in the videos. I started looking into technologies such as Augmented Reality, Deepfake, Speech/Video Synthesis, and AI humans, also known as Virtual avatars.

I saw a video of President Moon, the president of South Korea, saying that he is not a real person but an Artificial Human created with video synthesis technology. It was breathtaking. I immediately applied for DeepBrain AI and luckily here I am.

DeepBrain AI is a Startup in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
