How close are we to virtualization of a person? The technology developed over the past 1-2 years is really impressive.
Step 1 - Scan in a Person. One company that does full-body scans is Artec3D (https://www.artec3d.com/handheld-3d-scanners/shapifybooth).
Step 2 - Create animations from the scanned 3D model.
Step 3 - Replicate the Voice (100% computer generated from raw text. Trained on 30 sentences of my voice).
Next Phase: Step 4 - Construct Hologram or 3D projection onto a Mannequin (later a robot that moves).
Next Phase: Step 5 - Develop chat bot for talking with your supervisor (just negate anything he says and you will do fine).
Looking back at the year, I was thinking what software and hardware have I been the most happy with.
Software that I would have liked to have tried:
Computer Science, Medical Informatics, Health Services Research, Epidemiology.
