NTT R&D Forum 2019 hosts the big reveal
Recently, we reported on plans to recreate the Amadeus Kurisu AI program of Steins;Gate 0. Like its anime counterpart, it's meant to react as the actual Kurisu Makise would—and also like its anime counterpart, only a select few get to test and evaluate it in its early stages.
NTT Communications offered attendees of the NTT R&D Forum 2019 a sneak peek of the project in progress. Behind closed doors, visitors could test the aptitude of the Kurisu AI for themselves, as well as getting a look at the code that makes it tick. While we're going to have to wait a little longer for anything major, the official Science Adventure Twitter gave us a little look at how the presentation went:
Testers for the project were chosen online in September, either via membership on the official Science Adventure Series channel on Niconico or via lottery. The project is of of many facets of the Steins;Gate 10th anniversary festivities already underway.
There's no word yet on when the project will be ready to release to the public, or if there will be an English version.
