Would you like to chat in real-time with a Virtual Avatar? Meet Violet, a virtual streamer who wants to bring the world a game channel experience like no other. She’s not an AI or sentient robot, she’s a digital persona – a real person disguised by a digital augmented reality avatar. Violet likes to think of herself as a ‘digital Banksy’, having chosen to protect her identity in a world that thrives off sharing personal details and information on social media.
Speakers: Jeffrey Dates (The Mill), Violet (Digital Avatar)
