According to ARN, 18% of individuals in the US and 8% of Australians use virtual human services to resolve issues.
According to Capper, reliance and utilisation of virtual humans is growing due to their ability to outperform human chat and call centres across all criteria, including accuracy, response time, cost, sales, and length of (relevant) chat.
Liesl contends that the introduction of Apple's Siri and Google's competing Voice Search have spearheaded the rise of virtual humans on mobile devices to the point where such services are becoming commonplace. However recent research shows that humans may actually prefer assistance from virtual humans over real people:
Drawing on MyCyberTwin findings, she said that another reason is that humans have higher acceptance of the virtual human as it presents what the user sees as a more private and less judgemental experience. Capper said that professionals she regularly interacts with often revealed more to a virtual human than herself.
Liesl's expertise in this arena is unchallenged. A recent recipient of the Nokia Innovation Award at the Telstra Business Woman of the Year awards, Liesl is best known for her pioneering work in developing the disruptive digital assistant startup MyCyberTwin.
