Andrew Eborn – Back to The Futurist : AI tech which enables grieving families to speak to dead loved ones
As predicted, there have been seismic advances in science & technology including in the areas of robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), holograms and haptics
– Seoul based Deepbrain AI is offering a service whereby you can interact with late family members through an actual conversation
– The technology uses machine learning to process images, audio recordings and video footage of deceased people to create a virtual version that can interact with the living
– About 7 hours of interviewing and filming is required to learn mannerisms and voice.
– Subjects are also encouraged to write journals about their lives, including childhood memories, to be saved into the system.
– A virtual human is then created with their physical characteristics, mannerisms and voice
Family members can then visit the company’s studio to speak to the replica loved one after their death.
The service is expected to cost between £10,000 and £20,000 to create a virtual person. There would then be a further charge of c £1,000 each time

– ChatGPT is a language model developed by OpenAI. It is a type of machine learning model that has been trained on a large dataset of text, and can generate human-like text in response to prompts. ChatGPT can be used for a variety of natural language processing tasks, such as language translation, text summarization, and question answering. It is based on the GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) architecture, which is a state-of-the-art method for training large language models.
– Artificial intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems including learning (the ability to improve performance based on experience) and reasoning (the ability to draw conclusions and make decisions)
AI is a broad field and can be divided into two main categories: weak AI and strong AI.
Weak AI, also known as narrow AI, is designed to perform a specific task, such as image recognition or voice recognition. These types of AI are currently in use in many applications, such as virtual assistants, chatbots, and self-driving cars.
Strong AI, also known as general AI, is an AI system with general intellectual capabilities that are equivalent to a human’s. This type of AI would be able to perform any intellectual task that a human can and is not limited to a specific task. Strong AI does not exist yet, but it is an active area of research.
AI technology is based on mathematical algorithms, statistical models and computer programs that can be used to simulate and replicate human cognitive functions such as perception, reasoning, decision making, and learning.
What is machine learning?
Machine learning (ML) is a subfield of artificial intelligence (AI) that focuses on the development of algorithms and statistical models that enable computers to learn from and make predictions or decisions without being explicitly programmed.
In simple terms, machine learning is the process of teaching a computer to make decisions or predictions by providing it with examples and allowing it to learn from them. There are three main types of machine learning: supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and reinforcement learning.
Supervised learning is when the computer is provided with labeled data, which means that the correct output is provided for each input. The computer uses this data to learn a function that maps inputs to outputs.
Unsupervised learning is when the computer is provided with unlabeled data, which means that the correct output is not provided for each input. The computer uses this data to discover patterns and relationships within the data.
Reinforcement learning is when the computer learns by interacting with an environment and receiving feedback in the form of rewards or penalties.
The ultimate goal of machine learning is to develop models that can generalize from the examples they are trained on, and make accurate predictions or decisions on new, unseen data. This process is called inference.
Machine learning has many practical applications in areas such as computer vision, natural language processing, speech recognition, and many others.
