The Field Innovation Award recognizes individuals and organizations that leverage AI technology to solve real-life issues and advance the state of business and society.
The TEZUKA 2020 project was acclaimed as an innovative use of AI technology to develop a new manga, which involves combining numerous elements of storytelling, including location settings, characters, plot development, dialogues, panel layouts and speech bubbles. Through the AI technology, the project team created prototypes for new plots and characters, all while honoring the unique and highly recognizable Tezuka style. Human artists then used these AI-created prototypes to develop a complete, full-length manga entitled "PHAEDO."
Kioxia, guided by its mission of uplifting the world with memory, uses AI technology to support creativity as well as to improve production efficiency and quality through memory solutions.
