About aicontainer

Aicontainer developed by Honeycomb Lab is a visual AI solution that can be customized in various ways. It is comprised of the three elements of VISUAL, A.I., and DATA, and each element can be customized and joined in different combinations to produce a diverse and wide range of contents.

The VISUAL element displays the character and lets the user select on what kind of devices it will be displayed, such as signage monitors, tablets, or VR devices. The A.I. element can be customized in a variety of ways utilizing a voice conversation engine, image analysis, and other means to match the objective, location, and situation.
