Artificial Intelligence Is Creating New Art From The Work Of A Deceased Manga Great – Kotaku

Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

One of Japans greatest, if not the greatest, manga creators is having his work tapped into with the power of AI. Osamu Tezuka died in 1989, but next year, artificial intelligence will create new art based on Tezukas work.

Tezuka is known for influential works like Astro Boy, Princess Knight, and Kimba the White Lion.

Toshibas latest data project is called Kioxia and using its high-speed, large-capacity memory, artificial intelligence will create new Tezuka art based on immense digitalized volumes of work the artist produced during his lifetime.

The project is supported by Tezuka Productions.

Clarification: The headline of this post was altered slightly for clarity, and the language regarding the use of AI was changed to reflect the fact that new art was being created based on Tezukas work.
