Great resource for Training & Communication initiatives

We're using Synthesia to create explainer videos. It's just easier, faster, and more cost-effective to use Synthesia than to record an actual person doing the explanation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are digital humans?

Digital humans are virtual avatars generated by artificial intelligence. They are typically used to generate human interaction in the online space, from customer support to digital influencers.

Are there digital humans?

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: digital humans are leading the evolution of virtual assistance and conversational AI. They serve as not only a point of knowledge for customers worldwide but also as brand ambassadors with unique personalities.

How do you make a digital human?

With a tool like Synthesia, making a digital avatar for videos is incredibly easy.

Here's how you do it:

  1. Make a Synthesia account. Or make a free demo video if you don't want to commit just yet.
  2. Choose an AI avatar. We have 70+ built-in avatars to choose from, but you can also generate a digital version of yourself.
  3. Customize your video. Type in your script, add any images, shapes, audio, and backgrounds to personalize your video.

How do you use digital humans?

The concept of using digital humans is fairly new, but their use cases are ever-growing.

An AI human in the digital world can be used to interact with customers and respond to questions in real-time, on any device. Brand ambassadors and customer support representatives are some of the most popular use cases for conversational AI.

Another use case for digital avatars is video production at scale. Instead of filming videos with actors, cameras, and other equipment in a studio, you can make talking head videos with life-like digital AI avatars by simply typing in text.

What are digital humans used for?

Digital humans are used for a variety of purposes, from advertising and entertainment to education and customer service.

In many cases, they can provide a more lifelike and personal experience than traditional computer-generated characters.

For example, digital humans can be used to give tours of museum exhibitions or deliver presentations in online courses. They can also be used to create realistic 3D avatars for video games or virtual reality experiences.

As digital technology continues to evolve, it is likely that digital humans will play an increasingly important role in our lives.

What are the technologies used in developing digital humans?

The development of digital humans has come a long way in recent years, thanks to advances in technology.

One of the most important technologies used in this process is 3D scanning, which allows for the creation of highly realistic models of human bodies.

Once the 3D model is complete, it can then be animated using motion capture technology. This captures the movement of real people and translates it into digital form, allowing for realistic movements and expressions.

Finally, artificial intelligence is used to create lifelike behavior. This includes everything from facial expressions to body language. By combining all of these technologies, developers are able to create digital humans that are incredibly realistic and lifelike.
