My guest is D-ID co-founder and CEO Gil Perry. We talk about how the company logically evolved into tools for creating talking digital people and how its capabilities in GANs and protecting consumers from facial recognition technology were the ingredients for a unique AI-based video solution. The company is well known for powering MyHeritage's Deep Nostalgia product, which has animated over 100 million photographs for consumers. D-ID was also instrumental in helping Jean-Baptiste Martinoli win two film festival awards for his AI-generated short film in 2022.
Last fall, the company introduced Creative Reality Studio. That solution enables anyone to upload someone's picture, add some text, and quickly create a scripted video with an avatar in the likeness of the photo. In December, D-ID added the ability to create the script using a prompt to GPT-3 and upload images created by Stable Diffusion.
This is a great example of how synthetic media is often enhanced by layering several generative AI solutions together. The new use cases are also why these markets are the hottest in tech today. Perry, a former software developer that worked on the viral hit mobile apps Meerkat and HouseParty, offers an insider's view of the rapid rise and current trajectory of generative AI and synthetic media.
