Alexa-style bot to allow you to talk to dead loved ones
Loved ones can talk, joke and reminisce with the dead if they were still alive, courtesy a bot called Here After. The bot, which seems straight out of a Black Mirror episode, uses voice recordings of interviews conducted while the person is alive. Their responses are then edited, categorised and divided into sections such as “falling in love” or sentiments such as “happy” or “story about stressful moment”. The system uses artificial intelligence to construct suitable responses to questions and commands, in a similar way to Alexa or Google Assistant, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.
