Krafton says that Ana features “highly advanced facial manipulation technology” that “delicately expresses pupil movement, fine facial muscles and wrinkles, and enables natural joint movement throughout the body.” Meanwhile, “deep learning technologies” such as “advanced speech synthesis” have been used to “create an artificial intelligent voice for ANA so that she can act and sing like a real human being.”

Exactly how Krafton will use Ana for web3 purposes is unclear, though it’s easy to see how it can be leveraged to further blockchain and NFT-related efforts. In a press release, Krafton simply said that he hopes Ana will “attract the interest and popularity of Gen Z around the world,” which she will do, in part, through an “original music track” and other activities. influential in the field of entertainment. .
