As Al improves, we may see widespread replacement of human influencers with virtual ones.

As Al improves, we may see widespread replacement of human influencers with virtual ones.

It’s like they are slowly phasing out real humans in the public domain with pseudonymous names and virtual faces…Can an AI influencer get canceled? Can they claim plausible deniability for misdeeds that may occur because it’s artificial? Slippery slope indeed.

What do you think?

I give you the Vocaloids e.g. Hatsune Miku. Now that was mental. She had concerts and everything.

Once again, dystopian cyberpunk fiction called it – William Gibson’s Idoru from 1996

That one was getting married, but the over/under for that is probably 10 years.

The girl who made CodeMiko is really cool. All it is is Hollywood MoCap animation technology and real time CG rendering finally getting cheap enough for consumers to use.

This one called Xanadu is done incredibly well in Unreal Engine. Created by a guy named Cory Strassburger.

Then there’s the Hololive anime girls who have a managerial team like Kpop stars. Immensely popular and the actors behind them stay hidden. Their avatars aren’t as impressive animation wise, but their dev teams make them cool outfits and their fanbases create tons of content. This one is Gawr Gura. She’s a shark girl.
