HC-07 – Digital Humans in Health & Care

Danny Tomsett FaceMe CEO
14:40 15:25 Europe/Madrid HC-07 – Digital Humans in Health & Care

Before digital humans arrived on the scene, there existed a collection of predecessors by the names of avatars, chatbots, AI, virtual assistants or virtual humans. Digital humans are the embodiment of these predecessors and overlaid with a digitally rendered human-like interaction capability. They wink, grimace, smile, look at you and interact with you as you would with any other fellow human being. This session will focus on the 'why' of digital humans - from the science of human engagement to the social side of emotional connection with other humans to real examples in health care.
