Why do we need biodigital humans?
Many virtual characters didn’t use to look like ordinary humans at all, they were usually either aliens, superheroes, or monsters from video games. However, nowadays the trend for unrealistic digital characters is gradually losing relevance. On the contrary, fantastic and magical characters are replaced by our digital twins, whereas Virtual People Production is so accurate and detailed that it is easy to confuse digital people with real ones. The new virtual person is similar to the living one not only on the outside. Making of Digital People allows virtual humans to think (let’s thank the development of the artificial intelligence for that), and talk almost in the same way as their owners (thanks to speech synthesis). Some conservatives believe that such realistic and vivid digital people creating is unnecessary and even harmful. Although, there are at least 6 areas where biodigital copies of people benefit humanity. Let's talk about each of them. — Business and trade. The image of a person who looks like a real person increases empathy among customers, following their loyalty to the brand. For instance, the world-famous company P&G uses Yumi, their digital skincare specialist. The reports show that the conversion increased by 4.6 times, customer satisfaction by 2.3%, and the number of purchases increased twice. Making of digital humans definitely helps businessmen. - Education. A digital copy can become a great virtual teaching assistant, it can answer questions after lectures, and act as a real teacher's assistant. Forget the typical school phrase: «There are many of you, but only one me.» Digital human creating will save the energy of a real teacher and help students understand the subject faster and easier. — Health care. Digital human production can save doctors’ time whenever it comes to the technical part of their work and allow them to devote more time and energy only to those situations where the machine is still powerless. What else? Assistance in consultations, informing patients about health risks, communicating with patients about diseases are also on the list. Let's lift the weight off our healthcare workers. — Communication. Such profession as a call center operator is in danger of extinction, since real "talking heads" will soon be replaced by virtual ones. A digital human can provide services in many areas, from finance to the social sector. At the same time it can speak dozens of languages, adjust its speech or voice to the wishes of the client, and never make the same mistakes. - Games. When starting a video game or plunging into the metaverse, we imagine ourselves in the shoes of the main characters. The Development of Virtual People eases the job of our imagination, because what we see on the screen looks almost like real people, or maybe it is actually us, you and me. - Social networks and shows. Digital people can host various events, consistently delight their followers with unique content, and generally speaking, entertain the audience in a way that real people often find impossible. There are no limits and restrictions: digital bloggers, content makers and «celebrities» can do anything. Speaking of social networks. One of the successful examples of a human digital copy is enterpreneur Karlen Danielyan. The development of virtual human for his Instagram account was produced by ITSALIVE studio. And now more than 90 thousand people follow his social network, grasping the information he shares. One digital human benefits many real people.
