In 2023, Gartner recognized digital humans as one of the top five transformative technologies. Looking ahead, they forecast that by 2035, the digital human economy will become a $125-billion market with continuous growth. By 2027, it’s expected that the majority of B2C enterprise CMOs will allocate a dedicated budget for digital humans, underscoring their growing significance.

The future of business is inevitably being reshaped by the rise of digital humans. Researchers project that within a decade, most companies will integrate this technology into their operations. But what is digital human exactly?

Digital human is not only a chatbot’s successor

Imagine a virtual AI assistant, but with a human face, crafted to interact with people in a way that feels incredibly real. These digital beings are not just upgraded versions of chatbots and voice bots; they represent a significant leap forward.

While traditional chatbots excel in handling swift text-based interactions, digital humans are equipped to tackle more complex challenges. They act as a dynamic bridge, connecting the straightforward efficiency of traditional chatbots with the nuanced understanding of human operators. Digital humans are equipped with emotional intelligence, extensive knowledge, and an ability to engage in human-like conversations. These advancements allow them to interact with customers not only through precise verbal communication but also with subtle non-verbal expressions, thanks to their advanced cognitive understanding.  

Unique synergy of technologies

Our digital humans are at the forefront of technological innovation, blending the best of Born Digital’s existing technologies. They’re more than just visually appealing talking heads; they’re capable of a wide range of active operations.

We’ve integrated the latest generative AI, conversational AI, visual AI, and speech technologies, all enhanced with cognitive AI analytics. This is the culmination of five years of dedicated work, creating a unique synergy that brings these elements seamlessly together. 

At the core of our digital humans is what can be described as a digital brain. This brain is a reservoir of knowledge, tailored for specific use cases. It can access information from your CRM, databases, and other essential documents, ensuring that the digital personas are not just responsive but also deeply informed and helpful.
