Twitch Merges VTubers With Artificial Intelligence Amid Major Community Controversy

incident Vtuber This is one of those that most non-regular users of the streaming platform would have a hard time understanding. Those who do use avatars animated in real time, typically with the aesthetics of Japanese animation for live broadcasts. It’s a minority practice, but it’s gaining more and more weight on platforms like Twitch, However, even now that it holds more weight in the world of content creation, there are certain Misunderstanding or criticism of these types of broadcasters, Interestingly, the last one has been featured by Twitch itself during its review of the year 2023.

VTubers and Artificial Intelligence Are Twitch’s “Oil and Water”

The issue arose on December 22, when the platform published a tweet purporting to celebrate the existence of these special content creators. what happened VTubers were linked to Artificial Intelligence as if they were actually created and directed by machines. Needless to say, it’s rude. However, it could have been due to an innocent mistake or typo if it were not No corrections have been made since the day of publication, This situation is close to unforgivable, and has led to some complaints among content creators.

Although some streamers took it in jest, most complained about the tweets being posted by Twitch’s communications managers. ,Are you really going to act like there isn’t a person behind each model? Models are not generated by AI, they are created by real people with real people behind them. It is an insult to the artistes, animators and the talent behind the characters.”, commented VTuber MinnowCandy. Another content creator, Mari Youm, also noted more than 24 hours after the original tweet that “how is it so far”, in reference to the lack of improvisation by the platform.

These complaints are partly motivated by other disputes in the community. Recently, there have been attempts to create a VTuber designed entirely with artificial intelligence, which has, for the time being, proved problematic. somehow The specter of this AI was able to ‘break’ it say something like have any of you heard of the Holocaust? i’m not sure i believe him, It doesn’t help his robotic behavior or the other situations. In fact, if this goes to show anything, it’s that being a Vtuber isn’t as easy as creating a pretty avatar.

Additionally, content creators feel somewhat abandoned by the platform. One of the most common complaints is that the “Vtuber” tag is invoked by content creators who have nothing to do with the subject. without going ahead, xQc itself uses it constantly And without being punished for it. In this sense, being their only chance to promote themselves in an “exclusive” way, it doesn’t feel good for creators to compete against other streamers, which in a way, is deceiving a potential audience.

Why Vtubers?

Appearing in front of the camera can be the biggest hurdle many people don’t want to cross to become a streamer, and Vtuber can break that by creating their own avatar. An animated character allows them to create an outline from scratch and feel more comfortable creating content and expressing themselves online. In addition, and although this may not seem like the majority trend, there are Trans people who use it to express or explore their gender identity, There are generally a number of reasons why you might choose to present yourself as an avatar, however shocking, they are quite interesting.
