1. How did the idea of Abigail Spenser Hu becoming known as a Human and Virtual influencer come into existence?
First of all, I want to clarity that Virtual Influencer and AI influencer is not the same thing. I first started branching out as a virtual influencer as well as a real-life influencer cos I started making digital art and nfts instead of my traditional painting and it was natural for me to create my avatar and use it as a medium for my art pieces. Virtual influencers are created through 3D imaging. And while everything they wear and the environments in which they live don’t exist in real life, digital characters can crossover into the real world as well. There were two main reasons why I decided to create my virtual avatar. The first one being some environment doesn’t exist in real life, so it’s not physically Impossible to create certain futuristic technologies driven content or it will be extremely costly if I use my physical body. secondly, my avatars working as my clones frees me up a lot of time that otherwise need to be spent on creating content, I have a lot of brand deal daily while I am personally running a few multi-million dollars business, it just there is no way I have enough time to create four videos for 4 different brands a week, so building my virtual influencer role is gonna eventually pocket me 10 times more income in the Long run.
AI influencers on the other hand exist as a way for companies and organizations to promote their products or services using artificial intelligence technology. They may also be used to provide information or insights on a particular topic or industry. I got into the AI industry about 5 years ago through friends and family, and in 2022 I notice there is no AI influencer existing in the space yet so I said to myself maybe I can be the first one. Currently, I am working with AI companies that aim to solve real-life problems efficiently that can change people’s lives I want to be supportive in that community as much as I can.
I am also passionate about finding a way to showcase the capabilities of artificial intelligence and how it can be used in various applications. The existence of AI influencers is driven by the desire to use artificial intelligence technology creatively and engagingly to reach and influence audiences.
2. What are the pros and cons of virtual influencers compared to real-life influencers?
The cons are: They are physically perfect women made of pixels, standing in for women who have long been pressured to become physically perfect, without the advantage of that even being possible,” states Kaitlyn Tiffany (2019). This is common criticism expressed by users who find the essence of all AI influencers to be fake and, consequently, not relatable to them. Being created only for marketing purposes is a questionable act in some way.
Pros: perfection I guess
Indeed, the fame of many social media influencers can often be linked to their authenticity and how their audience relates to them. Authenticity can be a key factor in building trust and connection with an audience, and many social media influencers strive to present an authentic and genuine persona to their followers. This can include sharing personal experiences, feelings, and opinions, and being open and transparent about their lives and interests.
Influencers who are perceived as authentic and genuine are often more relatable to their audience, which can help to build a strong sense of community and connection. This can be especially important for social media influencers, who often rely on the support and engagement of their followers to grow and maintain their influence.
I have personal talk to a few of my fans before, and they all told me they were drawn by my fashion but the real reason they kept following me for years is because of my authenticity, I am not trying to be someone else for marketing or Branding purposes. I was so happy to hear that living an authentic life is my number one rule in life, everything I do in life from art to music to fashion, I am always making sure it represents my brand and who I am. Never tried to be someone else for whatever reason.
3. Why is AI gonna change all aspects of human life?
AI has the potential to change many aspects of human life because it can analyze and process large amounts of data quickly and accurately, and make decisions or recommendations based on that data. This makes it well-suited for a variety of applications, including automating tasks, analyzing data, and providing recommendations or insights.
AI has the potential to change many aspects of human life, including work, education, healthcare, transportation, and leisure activities. For example, AI could be used to automate certain tasks in the workplace, freeing up humans to focus on more complex and creative work. In education, AI could be used to personalize learning experiences and adapt to the needs and abilities of individual students. In healthcare, AI could be used to analyze medical data and make diagnoses or recommendations for treatment. In transportation, AI could be used to improve the safety and efficiency of transportation systems through the use of autonomous vehicles or smart traffic management systems. And in leisure, AI could be used to create personalized experiences and recommendations for entertainment and leisure activities.
Overall, the potential impacts of AI on human life are diverse and wide-ranging, and it is difficult to predict exactly how AI will change different aspects of human life in the future. However, it is likely that AI will continue to play a significant role in many areas of society and will continue to shape the way we live and work. And I’d love to be a promoter and ambassador. While AI has the potential to bring many benefits, it is important to consider the ethical and social implications of its development and use and to ensure that it is used in a way that is responsible and respectful of human values. It is also important to ensure that the development and use of AI are inclusive and benefit all members of society, rather than creating new inequalities or disadvantages.
