TEDxTokyo 2016 Speaker Kazuna Tsuboi
There’s a high school girl named Rinna who’s massively popular on SNS.
She appears to be an ordinary high school girl, but a fundamental difference exists between her and other girls—Rinna is an AI, and Microsoft developer Kazuna Tsuboi and her team created her.
Already 4.6 million users have connected with Rinna through SNS and enjoy friendly chats with her.
Rinna was developed with the objective of creating an AI that could emotionally connect with users in conversations.
They succeeded: Her witty and striking comments and emphatic reactions are so human that some are convinced a real human being is behind all this.
Kazuna’s next goal is to use this advanced technology to help individuals and businesses interested in establishing good relationships with people.
Meanwhile, this schoolgirl just keeps getting smarter, and the world awaits her evolution with excitement.
