DeepBrain AI and TV personality Howie Mandel have collaborated to create "AI Howie," a fully interactive, voice-enabled virtual human replica of the comedian, actor, TV host, and technology enthusiast.

DeepBrain's AI Human solution enables fans to interact and engage with AI Howie by simply asking questions. For example, when asked, "What was your favorite act on ['America's Got Talent'] this season?" The AI Howie model can respond in real time to support interactive, fun, and engaging fan experiences.

"I am equally thrilled, excited, and terrified to finally have the ability of showing up and doing things without going anywhere or doing anything," Mandel said in a statement.

DeepBrain AI applies deep learning technology to create hyper-realistic virtual humans through its AI Studios and the AI Human platforms. Virtual humans like the one created for Mandel are digital twins of the real person, with the same appearance, voice, gestures, and subtle mannerisms. The AI Studios platform enables script-to-video software that synthesizes dynamic video content in seconds.

In addition to the script-to-video capabilities, DeepBrain provides fully conversational experiences with its AI Human software.

AI Humans are available within mobile apps, web browsers, or voice-activated kiosks.

"Our vision is to humanize digital experiences and empower creative teams to generate immersive content at scale," said Eric Jang, DeepBrain AI's CEO, in a statement. "Working with Howie Mandel was a fun experience, and we are excited to see how the AI Howie collaboration will connect with his fans worldwide."

Before working with Mandel, DeepBrain created digital twins of Premier League soccer superstar Son Heung-Min, multiple news anchors across Asia, and even South Korean president Yoon Suk-yeol.
