Influencing the future

Born in Chengdu, Sichuan province, Yi Shiqi has accumulated nearly 10 million followers on video-sharing platform Douyin, also known as Tik Tok. Every two days, she updates her feed with a short clip illustrating the funny, sitcom-like relationship she has with her boyfriend. 

Except that she's not real. She is just a character simulated by computer. "We designed her as a neighborhood girl, who is a little lazy, and cares about looks and money like most people do," Song Wei, founder of Chengdu Yiji Culture Technology Co, Yi's developer, says. 

After a year of development, a 3D version of Yi was released last month. With one blue and one brown eye, she wears a pair of headphones around her neck and two panda-shaped hairpins.

Song says she hopes that within the year, Yi will have accrued 20 million followers. Currently, about 57 percent of Yi's followers are male and about 40 percent of the character's total fans are aged between 18 and 25.

"In the future, we will release a short sitcom series, which will unveil Yi's background and her life," Song says. Born on Jan 12, 2001, Yi will "go to the Sichuan Conservatory of Music" soon, a designed plot for the character that will lay a foundation for her to expand her "career" as a singer and dancer, and encounter friendship, loss and love, just like every teenager does, according to Song. 


·She is not real. She's a computer-simulated character.

·Q: What is the girl like?

·Q: Who are Yi's main followers?

A: Males between the ages of 18 and 25.
