Have you guys heard about Miquela Sousa, better known as Lil Miquela? She’s just 19 y/o and has over 1.3 million followers. She is an Instagram influencer and is associated with several luxury brands. Oh! And yes, she is a ROBOT!

She is a fictional character created by Trevor McFedries and Sara Decou as a part of their digital art project. She was programmed by Brud, an LA-based technology startup specializing in artificial intelligence and robotics. This virtual influencer is an outcome created by combining a robot with the personalities of two different Instagram personalities: Kartsinkle and Emily Baador.

At first glance, Miquela could understandably be mistaken for a living, breathing person. She seems to live a luxurious life that many women dream of. She wears real-life clothes, promotes brands and also supports a lot of noble causes towards the society. Besides advocating for LGBT rights she also encourages her followers to donate toward charity.

But she isn’t the only virtual influencer; there are few other computer-generated cyborgs too. We have Blawko and Bermuda created by the same company and Shudu created by Cameron-James Wilson. Shudu has even modeled for pop star Rihana’s makeup line. While Bermuda has 92.9k followers, Shudu and Blawko have more than 135k Instagram followers each.
