The Japanese variety show, Ametalk, commissioned CoeFont and AIdeaLab to create an AI avatar of comedian and former host of their talk show, Hiroyuki Miyasako, as part of a unique project. With Miyasako’s permission, the teams trained the AI using past footage of the show, which included learning a vast amount of data, the length and pattern of the answers, and other relevant information to ensure natural conversation. The teams made adjustments up until the day of the programme recording to ensure a seamless and professional final product that could interact with celebrities on the show.
