‘We can’t scale humans’: Why startups are raising millions to build AI avatars

  • Silly as it may seem, the race to build lifelike digital avatars has become serious business. Earlier this month, Soul Machines raised $40 million in a Series B round after being featured in a YouTube Originals documentary
  • At stake is the ability to replace (or at least replicate) the work of actual people on a grand scale.
  • Danny Tomsett, the CEO of Uneeq, sees digital humans as a kind of middle ground between chatbots and live support, offering the scale of the former with the empathy and body language of the latter.
  • WE CAN’T SCALE HUMANS IN A WAY THAT ADDRESSES ALL THOSE NEEDS IN SOCIETY.”
