The Five Development Stages of Digital Human
CG characters used to be the Sci-fi imaginations that only exist in video games and movies.
Nowadays, digital human that can enable physical interaction and assist everyday tasks is
brought to our real life.
In the white paper, SenseTime provides the original definition of the five development stages (L1 to L5) of digital human from two perspectives: Level of automation and similarity to human beings.
AI digital human of L4 can learn from a large amount of human conversations, facial
expressions, and body languages. It can achieve intelligent human-like interactions by
performing natural facial expressions and body movements.
Supported by advanced deep learning technologies, AI digital human of higher level can rapidly acquire knowledge from various scenarios with its learning capabilities, becoming “expert” of a specific field. The intelligent interactions realised by AI digital human of L4 or higher can be applied in general scenarios and various industries, providing momentum for industrial transformation.
SenseTime’s AI Digital Human to Empower Industries
As the pioneer of the AI digital human, SenseTime leveraged proprietary multimodal
interaction, deep learning algorithms and full stack AI-Generated Content (AIGC) to create
smarter and more professional AI digital humans, enabling human-machine interactive
At the 2020 World Artificial Intelligent Conference, SenseTime’s Digital Human played the role of a docent to guide tours for guests and visitors. Sense time's Digital Human also acts as a shopping guide in Guangzhou AEON Mall, as well as the customer service manager in the Bank of Ningbo Shanghai Branch, providing inquiry services for customers.
