Alexa-style bot to al­low you to talk to dead loved ones

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Sunday Special -

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.
