Krafton is the developer of popular action games such as PUBG: Battlegrounds. It is now working with synthetic reality, showing a “virtual human-powered by hyperrealism, rigging, and deep learning.” But you may name her ANA.
“ANA actually appears, unlike any other virtual person that presently exists through other technologies, with human-like traits such as baby hairs and fluff on her skin.” Krafton describes her as having “very sophisticated face rigging technology that sensitively portrays the movement of the pupil, fine facial muscles, and wrinkles, and enables natural joint movement across the complete body.”
“Deep learning technologies, such as advanced voice synthesis, also contribute to the creation of an artificially intelligent voice for ANA, allowing her to act and sing like a real human.”
What? Sing? Yes. “ANA will release an original music single and broaden her reach of influencer activities beyond entertainment and esports,” said Krafton’s Josh Seokjin Shin.
Music by virtual musicians made by another game company, League of Legends maker Riot Games, has done well on YouTube. Perhaps ANA will follow suit… If (as is always the case) the music is half-decent.
