AI ghosts and virtual assistants – so your digital self lives on, and on
Facebook AI knows what types of things you post socially, and how you would respond to engagement by your friends. Why should it stop when your body packs in?
Plus, you could activate your AI ghost-self long before you die, to get it to do all your online menial tasks… a self-replica virtual assistant. YAY
Check out the Black Mirror episode ‘Be right back…’ which riffs on this very theme, it’s well worth watching.
Interesting. This will need legislation better than we have for clairvoyants who claim to speak to your dead relatives. Granny’s AI might start changing her will after she sees how we behave once really granny is gone. Crazy.
