Today we're diving deep into the futuristic world of generative AI video tools. Picture this, you create an AI Avatar that looks and talks just like you and then use it to produce captivating video content. Sounds like sci-fi right? Well, buckle up because we're bringing this cutting edge technology straight to your ears with our special guest Joshua Xu, the founder of HeyGen. Join us as we unravel the secrets behind creating hyper realistic AI avatars and learn how HeyGen is revolutionizing the video marketing landscape.

Joshua graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2014 and joined Snapchat since then. He founded HeyGen in 2020 Dec. Their mission is to use AI to reinvent the video creation experience. They believe visual storytelling = creativity + creation. HeyGen aims to make the "creation" cost nothing, liberating everyone's creativity.
