Recently, the concept of the "virtual human" has become popular with the rise of the metaverse. "Virtual human" refers to a digital person with human characteristics created by means such as computer graphics, motion capture, graphic rendering, deep learning, speech synthesis, etc. With instances such as virtual singer Teresa Teng returning to the stage with singer Shen Zhou, Alibaba virtual anchor Dongdong hosting TV programs with Olympic champions, and virtual KOL Nonoka discussing lifestyle tips, the virtual human is entering fields such as games, finance, cultural tourism, education, and intelligent services. But is the virtual human a person? Will they replace actual people? On July 3, leaders in related technology fields will discuss the cutting-edge future of the virtual human.
