The “untact” era has arrived along with the rise of non-face-to-face communication methods amid the COVID-19 crisis. And there’s been concerns over the chronic loneliness and boredom which can be caused by social isolation. And “digital humans,” which can see, hear, speak and communicate just like humans, have emerged as a popular trend. A domestic company has developed a digital human that can interact with real humans. Based on the real-time engine which can process the data right after entering commands a high-quality real-time virtual human can provide real-time movements as well. Also, all body parts including hair, skin, pupil, downy hair and fine wrinkles have been vividly realized. And it can provide language and emotional expressions as well. A domestic company has developed “AI-based digital twins,” based on the precise extraction of data through facial motion capture. It can provide various contents that are similar to real humans. The company has developed its own technologies for AI-based digital twins. And it has realized diversified facial expressions and animations more rapidly and effectively. And the technologies are expected to be applied to the field of new media including films as well as VR and AR contents. Moreover, another domestic research team has developed a VR thermal device which enables people to feel the temperature in a virtual world. The length of a VR thermal device can be more than doubled so that it can be attached closely to the skin. Also, it has increased the level of heat conduction so the immersion level can be maximized. Aside from games and medical trainings, it can provide vivid virtual experiences including the meetings with people who are difficult to meet in a real world. Humanism has been one of the core values of digital revolution. We introduce “digital humanism,” which is expected to connect the world with advanced technologies.

Along with the rise of untact platforms, the recruiting places have been changed from offline to online spaces. And a lot of companies have introduced untact measures for job interviews. Job seekers have made use of the advanced technologies like AI and VR to effectively deal with the rise of the non-face-to-face recruiting culture. A video interview for overseas employment has recently been provided. Job seekers who passed the initial document screening process can have a chance for a video interview. People can have an untact video interview at home, but some of them visit the place prepared by KOTRA, which can be a better environment for a job interview. It has given a boost to the shrunk job market. Considering the expansion of the non-face-to-face recruiting measures, a domestic university has introduced an AI-based solution to help the students find jobs. The AI-based system can analyze the interview and suggest a solution that can improve the weak points of the interviewee. Therefore, people can better prepare for the untact job interviews. What is more, the local governments have actively supported the job-seeking activities. The Namyangju district has introduced an educational service for a non-contact VR interview. We explore non-face-to-face recruiting which has emerged as a new solution amidst the COVID-19 crisis.

Along with the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 spread, consumers are having difficulties with visiting offline stores. And it has led to the rise of non-face-to-face services. Therefore, a lot of offline stores and distribution channels have sought various ways to survive amid the COVID-19 crisis. A domestic theater has analyzed the weakened consumer confidence and introduced untact cinema. The guide robot of the untact cinema greets customers and it gives answers to the basic questions. Moreover, when customers give orders with a kiosk, workers can provide the food through a pick-up box. Kids cafe, which was directly hit by the COVID-19 crisis, has made a daring attempt to deal with the financial crisis by focusing on promoting the services which used to be optional in the past. And after providing a food delivery service for children who can’t visit the cafe, the sales, which decreased because of the COVID-19 pandemic, has been recovered. Along with the expansion of the untact consumption, a live commerce platform has emerged as a new sales strategy. Live commerce refers to a marketing strategy that promotes and sells products through a live streaming. As people can feel the atmosphere more vividly even without visiting the offline store, it has enjoyed explosive popularity among consumers. We look into the strategies of offline stores, which have led the latest distribution trends despite the decrease in sales amid the COVID-19 spread.
