[ Junya Iizuka comments on his appointment ]
I decided to join this project because I share alt's strong desire to create a world where human labor is eliminated and people can focus solely on creative work.
We believe that AI clones can enrich and greatly expand our lives as we live in a parallel world, like a metaverse. In the field of business, AI agents are already taking on part of our daily work, and there is a growing need to design user and customer experiences in line with the evolution of AI technology. I intend to put into practice the social implementation of AI to enrich people's lives, leveraging my own business development experience as well as alt's advanced technological capabilities.
At alt, we offer a wide range of consultation services, from AI demonstration experiments to design, implementation, and operation. We also actively promote technical cooperation, joint business development, and sales partnerships, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
