Osamu Tezuka and his world that everyone dreamed of?
What are “Tezuka-like” lines?
A bumpy road!?
The path to creating plots with an AI that learned 130 works
1Deconstructing Tezuka’s works into 13 phases and converting them into data
For AI to learn the essence of Tezuka’s work and his characteristics as a writer, we used 130 stories that complete in one episode. Then, we deconstructed them into 13 phases to use as project data. The staff from Tezuka Productions were the ones who deconstructed the story lines.
2AI generates the plot based on given data
The AI generates the outline of story after learning the structure of the 13 phases in Osamu Tezuka’s works. However, it did not take shape easily, and there was much trial and error. As a result, the AI produced more than 100 completed plots.
3Examples of generated scenarios
For more than 100 plots, only about 20% made sense as stories. However, they were full of unexpectedness that people would normally not come up with. These off-beat ideas and leaps are also the essence of Osamu Tezuka.
