First AI being character created by beingAI made her debut at EY Strategic Growth Forum® 2021 using HoloPresenceTM technology from ARHT Media
HONG KONG & TORONTO — November 16, 2021 — beingAI Limited (www.beingai.com), the world’s first transmedia AI company, and ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT Media”) [TSXV:ART], the global leader in the development, production and distribution of high-quality, low latency hologram and digital content, have joined forces to bring Zbee™ to life as a real-time interactive AI being hologram at the EY Strategic Growth Forum 2021 in Palm Springs, California.
Created by beingAI, ZbeeTM is the world’s first AI being. AI beings are both a novel category of artificially intelligent virtual characters infused with rich personality, and the next-generation ubiquitous, empathic human-machine interface enabled by a technology platform in development by beingAI that empowers them to traverse the physical and digital divide to engage with people in real-time anywhere, anytime, as part of an interactive content and narrative experience.
“We are honored to work with EY and ARHT Media to create a unique and engaging experience for visitors at the EY Strategic Growth Forum.” says Jeanne Lim, Ph.D., Co-founder and CEO of beingAI Limited. “Our hope is for AI beings to bring positivity and real value into people’s lives, so having an opportunity for Zbee to talk about the importance of diversity and inclusion and demonstrate how she provides mental wellness support to people is very rewarding for the entire beingAI team.”
“We are thrilled to partner with beingAI and its growing roster of AI-enabled robots starting with Zbee,” stated ARHT CEO Larry O’Reilly, “The perfect place to kick-off this relationship is at the EY Strategic Growth Forum, bringing the digital world into interactive life.”
