This is fascinating trend. My students (grads + undergrads) think it’s one of the creepiest things they’ve ever seen. It’s also gaining traction.
- I’ve been following @lilmiquela since 2018 when she came up in conversation (on stage) as SxSW
- Then I saw this article from the @nytimes this past June
- THEN I watched Mark Sagar of @soul_machines map out Will.i.am’s face/voice and create a virtual version of him in How Far is Too Far | The Age of A.I., Google’s AI docuseries. (worth watching)
I’m unsure of where we’re headed but it’s also worth watching.
