Meta’s AI Chatbot Features Celebrities Like Tom Brady, Paris Hilton
By Movieguide® Contributor
Meta has created AI chatbots using the likeness of actors, influencers, Super Bowl champions and more.
Tech Crunch reported that a “vast list of celebrities and influencers…have signed on to let Meta use their likeness for some fun. There are now 28 AI characters based on famous people—but built entirely from AI—from across the worlds of sport, music, social media and more.”
Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, wanted to give life and personality to chatbots.
“This isn’t just gonna be about answering queries,” Zuckerberg said of the chatbots. “This is about entertainment and about helping you do things to connect with the people around you.”
As of now, the chatbots will respond in text, and the knowledge of the chatbots is “limited to information that largely existed prior to 2023, which means some responses may be dated,” Meta confessed at Meta Connect 2023.
Variety provided a list of just half of the celebrities who have signed on to be a chatbot thus far.
LaurDIY “as Dylan, quirky DIY and Craft expert and companion for Gen Z”
MrBeast “as Zach, the big brother who will roast you—because he cares”
Naomi Osaka “as Tamika, anime-obsessed Sailor Senshi in training”
Paris Hilton “as Amber, detective partner for solving whodunnits”
Raven Ross “as Angie, workout-class queen who balances fitness with meditation”
Roy Choi “as Max, seasoned sous chef for culinary tips and tricks”
Sam Kerr “as Sally, free-spirited friend who’ll tell you when to take a deep breath”
Snoop Dogg “as Dungeon Master, choose your own adventure with the Dungeon Master”
Tom Brady “as Bru, wisecracking sports debater who pulls no punches”
In addition to AI chatbots, “This year, we’re getting actual details on the upcoming Quest 3, Meta’s mainstream VR headset. The company announced the product and showed off its design back in June but promised that actual details would follow at this year’s Meta Connect. While we know the new — hopefully affordable — headset is coming at the event, there’s been nothing official about the price, specs, or when you’ll be able to buy your own,” The Verge wrote after Meta Connect 2023.
