TOKYO, July 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — 1SEC INC. (Headquarters: Meguro, Tokyo; hereinafter “1SEC”), a next-generation creative company with locations in Los Angeles, United States and Tokyo, Japan that empowers talent through technology, begins activities in collaboration with Takafumi Horie Innovation University (HIU) toward the “Takafumi Roid Horie” (Horieroid) project to create Takafumi Horie’s virtual human avatar. The “Horieroid Start Dash Campaign,” a crowdfunding campaign to raise awareness of virtual technologies and support operational efficiency through AI and virtual humans, will be the first stage of these activities.
Following in the footsteps of Hiro Mizushima’s “Lewis Hiro Newman,” the world’s first celebrity to become a virtual avatar back in 2019, “Horieroid” makes his debut. Horieroid is an AI and image-generated virtual human modeled off Takafumi Horie, the founder of Interstellar Technologies and HIU, initially created so Horie could freely engage in the activities he enjoys without worrying about his tedious everyday tasks.
Moving forward, there will be more focus on deep learning for speech so that tasks like lectures, product PR, fan interactions, etc. could all be delegated to Horieroid. The plan is to carry out said activities as a symbol of the age in which humans, AI, and virtual humans coexist.
In the future, the company will continue to deepen its partnerships with celebrities like Liam Nikuro, who attracted much attention as the first male influencer, and Hiro Mizushima, the first actor to become a virtual human. The company will also continue the research and development for AI deep learning.
