Aki is honoring the Art Basel backdrop and celebrating its next phase of personalization technology with an AI-generated virtual gallery and Metaverse immersion for brands, which can be accessed in Miami or remotely through a VR headset. Aki commissioned AI artist Kyle Hailey to generate AI artwork for the in-person brands and select remote guests to browse during the event. Prior to the event, clients shared responses to prompts like: “What are your three favorite visual artists?” “What’s your favorite color?” and “What’s your favorite era?” Hailey used the prompts to generate unique images for each participant. Metaverse developer Remio integrated these images into a virtual art gallery that can be accessed via VR headsets and browsed during the event.
