Pajamas at work? AI startup offers deepfake wardrobe for meetings

Tokyo-based EmbodyMe app features real-time imaging with virtually no lag

EmbodyMe's app can cover up pajamas and bedhead, instantly giving users a more polished appearance.

TOKYO -- With video conferencing becoming an essential work tool amid the coronavirus pandemic, a Tokyo-based startup has developed a way to digitally make users look professional even when they had just rolled out of bed.

Users simply need to download EmbodyMe's app to their computer and upload professional photos of themselves. The app then generates a more polished version of their image using artificial intelligence, so users can attend Zoom and Teams meetings looking like they are in a full suit while still wearing pajamas.
