Is Human Simulation Getting Almost Real?

I don’t know. What do you think?
Watch this YouTube Video of Emily.
The woman in the video is not real. Image Metrics used real actress Emily O’Brien by getting 35 facial poses using just a pair of digital cameras. Then the animators went to work. One source says that “ninety per cent of the work is convincing people that the eyes are real.”
Hmmmmm. In 2020 will this be your virtual librarian? (Yes I saw the MS prototype too.)
