Soul Machines Introduced Digital Marilyn Monroe Chatbot, Created Using AI 

The late actress Marilyn Monroe may now be contacted through a “hyper-real” artificial intelligence (AI) digital avatar. The project’s creators claim that the avatar can respond to queries “in Marilyn’s signature voice and style,” even though Monroe passed away 62 years ago.  Soul Machines, an artificial intelligence technology company, introduced Digital Marilyn, an interactive experience where Marilyn “shares anecdotes and even delivers personalized greetings, creating an unforgettable experience for Marilyn fans.” 

Digital Marilyn, created by Soul Machines utilizing artificial intelligence, allows users to engage “in real-time using advanced natural language processing, deep learning and GPT 3.5,” according to Friday’s announcement. 

According to Soul Machine, Digital Marilyn can detect and react to users’ emotions using its unique camera and microphone technologies. “Each conversation is special in its way. Digital Marilyn learns your tastes and responds appropriately, creating an authentic relationship that speaks to you personally,” claims Soul Machines, whose digital avatars typically have 20-minute conversations.

The business claims that Digital Marilyn can “engage in natural, fluid dialogue, adapting to your questions and interests in real-time… thanks to her AI capabilities.” Thanks to this technology that mimics the human nervous system, Digital Marilyn may react with lifelike expressions and emotions, making for an incredibly unforgettable and intimate experience. 

Several other generative AI projects incorporating deceased celebrities have also emerged, the most recent of them being the Digital Marilyn project. The animation biopic of French singer Edith Piaf will utilize AI to produce a voice and visual imitation of Piaf, and the Calm app has Jimmy Stewart delivering a bedtime story with an AI-generated voice. 

At a private event on March 8 at SXSW in Austin, Soul Machines unveiled Digital Marilyn. The project’s stated goal is to showcase “the transformative power of AI in connecting brands and consumers,” according to Soul Machines’ CEO and co-founder Greg Cross.

To bring an iconic person to life through engaging discussions and emotional intelligence, Digital Marilyn highlights our Biological AI, Cross said in a statement. “It’s not just a feeling of nostalgia; it’s a look at how immersive interactions will be in the future.” 

Authentic Brand Groups, which oversees the rights to the late actor’s image and likeness, is a collaborator in the production of the Marilyn Monroe generative AI chatbot. 

“Marilyn Monroe remains a timeless icon, inspiring generations with her talent, charisma, and enduring legacy,” stated Dana Carpenter, EVP of entertainment at Authentic. She added that Soul Machines’ state-of-the-art technology is a great fit for bringing Marilyn into existence in the AI era, and we are very excited to work with them. Digital Marilyn offers new opportunities for fans of all ages to connect with Marilyn in a more meaningful way, allowing them to better understand and honor her legacy and the impact she had on the globe. 

Among the other “digital celebrities” that Soul Machines has made using artificial intelligence are for Carmelo Anthony, Francis Ngannou, Mark Tuan, and Jack Nicklaus. Cross and Mark Sagar, a visual effects supervisor and engineer who won an Oscar, started the firm in 2016. Muhammad Ali, David Beckham, Elvis Presley, Shaquille O’Neal, Sports Illustrated, Greg Norman, Dr. J, and Authentic Brands Group are among the many brands in their portfolio.
