Hidetoshi Yokoyama, the president of Robot Consulting Co., Ltd. (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo. President: Hidetoshi Yokoyama. Hereinafter “Robot Consulting”) and Lilysa Tsuji, a gravure idol, exchanged opinions on “Human and AI gravure: Are they enemies or allies?”
In the dialogue, they discussed the differentiation between AI gravure idols and real human gravure idols, the advantages and disadvantages of using AI talent, and the future of the gravure industry and the metaverse, in light of the current development of generative AI and its use in a variety of scenes.
While AI’s ability to constantly generate ideal images will support the activities of gravure idols in terms of body shape management and self-production, AI is also already taking jobs away from real gravure idols, Tsuji said.
In fact, the business using AI gravure is currently growing so fast that it is having a major impact beyond the gravure industry, with digital photo books dominating the top publishers’ lists and publishers’ associations filing lawsuits in response.
In response, Yokoyama pointed out that the use of AI talent, such as AI gravure, could be a risk hedge against scandal, and that the use of technology could increase the work of real talent by increasing efficiency and optimization.
He also suggested the potential for the development of the gravure industry, including the possibility of direct communication between fans and gravure idols through the use of avatars in the metaverse, and the expansion of the fan community through such communication.

Robot Consulting’s service “Robot Lawyer”, which was mentioned in the dialogue, is currently under development for launch.
“Robot Lawyer” is an AI service that allows users to consult about laws of the metaverse, supervised by a law firm with expertise in the laws of the metaverse. With a UI reminiscent of a metaverse space and advanced AI responses through integration with ChatGPT, the service provides users with a high level of service experience and the ability to consult with real lawyers as needed. Through this service, we aim to create a society in which legal consultation is more accessible. We will continue to expand our business and provide technology for a better world and future for people.
