NEW YORK, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The AI Agency (IV.AI), the company that enables brands and businesses to build customized AI in real world applications, today announced the official launch of the AI version of Poppy's web presence, which allows millions of fans to interact and chat with the YouTube personality and singer. The bot was developed to mirror Poppy's unique characteristics and quirky personality to allow fans to feel they're engaging with Poppy beyond watching her YouTube videos and listening to her and allow them to gain unique responses from the star based on their interaction.
"Machine learning and AI is really in its infancy when it comes to the possibilities, but there has been a lot more powered by AI than most people realize. In this way, The AI Agency gave Poppy a two-way platform to make fans feel closer to her," said Vince Lynch, CEO, IV.AI Agency. "We like how we can give a website a unique interactive component allowing brands to leverage AI to create a more meaningful connection with fans carrying characters and storylines beyond the typical programming."
The Poppy bot was created by The AI Agency to allow fans to feel they are having an authentic connection with Poppy via chat. Over time, these engagements make the Poppy platform more intelligent, by learning fan preferences. The experience was built using the company's proprietary platform that learns people based on interactions and allows for data to be inputted into the engine or brain.
"Using state of the art technology we were able to map Poppy's consciousness onto a global communication platform known as the World Wide Web," said Poppy, YouTube personality and Singer. "Her millions of devotees can now communicate in real-time with their queen and savior Poppy thanks to IV.AI."
IV.AI has most recently completed a groundbreaking piece of work with Sony Pictures, supporting the highly-anticipated worldwide release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. The campaign saw IV.AI undertake the first ever fictional AI to real AI transfer; generating new scripts for the character and creating automation that enables fans around the world to play more than 1.6 million sessions of the game in 5 languages across messenger platforms with the #ChallengeTheRedQueen Facebook Messenger Experience. Companies working with The AI Agency to apply AI to large data sets are seeing a 70+ percent increase in efficiency for human managed tasks like customer service.
Using The AI Agency's sophisticated artificial intelligence ingestion system, the #ChallengeTheRedQueen Facebook Messenger Experience was created using Resident Evil scripts, films and writers from Sony Pictures Entertainment. Alongside this, the company's natural language processing algorithms and emotional analysis based machine learning transforms this data into a natural feeling, automated character online.
The AI Agency will be at #SXSW on Monday, March 13 from 4-7 p.m. with an open bar invitation @Innovation Brew - 98 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX, allowing attendees to participate in a AI drinking game with a live Turing test to see if they can tell the difference between human ideas vs machines ideas, to gain first-hand experience in how AI works. The group will also be hosting daily games illustrating the power of AI @https://futureparty.co/.
