All living things on the earth are carbon-based creatures, but virtual digital humans are a leap from carbon-based civilization to silicon-based civilization.

Hua Zhibing is supported by the super-large-scale intelligent model “Enlightenment 2.0” led by Beijing Zhiyuan Artificial Intelligence Research Institute.
