The Museum of Arts & Photography (MAP), based in Bengaluru, India, plans to take art and culture to the heart of the community and make it accessible and engaging for diverse audiences. Combining digital innovation with the magic of visual arts, the museum intends to provide audiences with a unique visitor experience.
Helping MAP realize this, the team from Accenture Labs has created India’s first conversational digital persona of an artist, using advanced technologies including face superimposition and speech synthesis through deep learning to create synthetic video and audio; and natural language understanding and natural language processing to enable interactive dialogue. Visitors will be able to have a life-like conversation with the digital twin of the artist by asking questions and receiving answers in the artist’s words and voice. With this solution, a so-far passive museum experience will evolve into an interactive and immersive one.
