The Times, London, has featured FaceMe’s Digital Human for UBS bank.

UBS clients will be able to call up a video image of Daniel Kalt, which has been programmed to answer questions that the real Mr Kalt has schooled it to deliver.

It was created after images of Mr Kalt’s head were recorded for half a day, using more than 120 high-definition professional cameras on a special scanning rig. The digital rendering is of such detail that some clients might think that they are looking at a video of a real person on a conference call, although the experience is designed not to deceive them.
