India’s Newest Museum Allows Conversation With a Dead Artist via AI
The Museum of Art and Photography and Accenture Labs have collaborated to create India’s first conversational digital persona of the celebrated artist, M F Husain.
This unique digital experience was created by The Museum of Art and Photography during Covid 19 lockdowns as a way to feel engaged while experiencing art. Husain’s persona gives a glimpse into the life and work of one of India’s most compelling artists.
Viewers can simply ask Husain’s digital twin a question regarding his early life, family, or career to receive a simulated response from him. While Husain’s voice has been digitally created using speech synthesis software, the questions and answers have been prepared through extensive research on the artist.
The experience will also be available on the web and mobile platforms and as a 3D hologram at the Museum’s physical space which is set to open in December 2021.
