The virtual human gets an advanced face-rigging technology that the company claims expresses the movement of the pupil, fine facial muscles and wrinkles. This provides a natural joint movement across the entire body. Additionally, deep learning technologies, such as advanced voice synthesis have been used to help create an AI-powered voice for Ana.

“ANA is a hyper-realistic virtual human created by KRAFTON’s unparalleled technology. We expect her to attract the interest and popularity of Gen Z around the world,” said Josh Seokjin Shin, Head of the Creative Center of Krafton. “ANA will release an original music track and expand her scope of activity as an influencer into various areas across entertainment and esports,” he added.

Virtual humans are becoming increasingly popular on social media platforms, including apps like Instagram.  These virtual influencers are created for various reasons. Some virtual influencers have a following as high as 6 million on Instagram. These virtual humans give the creators more control over the content. Ana might not be launched as a virtual influencer but will be designed to interact with real human beings.
