The ChatGPT setup that will allow you to speak to your dead relatives has been revealed. Sooner than later, you can engage in dialogue with the digital likeness of your loved one.
If you save your voice, movement patterns, and personality traits onto Artur Sychov’s Live Forever mode, an AI chatbot will allow your surviving relatives to have a conversation with you in the metaverse after your death, Vice said.
Sychov works for metaverse creators Somnium Space, and his project is aimed at allowing grieving humans to engage with their loved ones in a realistic way after they die.
His inspiration was the death of his father, and advancing tech means about “five years” from now, it will be normal for these VR robots to mimic conversing with the person of interest.
He said: “The AI is progressing extremely fast. Honestly, it is progressing faster than even we anticipated.”
Somnium Space is active on virtual reality headsets already, and users can dive deep into the 3D world.
