New technology allowed the deceased to communicate with his family during his funeral

Increasingly popular are technologies that allow you to create digital clones. Something similar was done by Stephen Smith, owner of StoryFile. His specialization lies in the development of conversational bots. In June, his mother passed away and the son managed to ensure his virtual presence at the funeral.

New technology allowed the deceased to communicate with his family during his funeral

The technology is based on artificial intelligence and uses 20 cameras to record human responses to a variety of questions. They gather in the base and when a certain question is asked, the AI ​​finds the most appropriate answer. The result is a sense that the digital clone is engaged in casual dialogue.

The late Mrs. Smith knew a lot about the Holocaust. The son is sure that she should pass on her knowledge to others even after leaving this world. With the help of the StoryFile bot, this has become entirely possible. Thanks to him, those present at the funeral were able to communicate with her and obtain answers to their questions.

The developer says that it is most likely impossible to create full-fledged digital clones now. Only science fiction films have such technologies. In reality, people are too complex. But, using the approach he has already tested, it is possible to create the illusion of the presence of a deceased person.
