HOW WOULD YOU F E E L ABOUT I NTERACTING WITH A CHATBOT F UELLED BY A DE­CEASED L OVED ONE’S T E XTS AND SO­CIAL ME­DIA POSTS?

I don’t like the idea of it at all. My part­ner posts once in a blue moon and it’s al­ways some­thing ran­dom so the chatbot would cre­ate some weirdo with an ob­ses­sion for dis­as­ters and one word an­swers – “Yes”, “Ok”, “Wow – earth­quake”, “What a storm!” And then if it was my Dad, it would just be a whole lot of ran­dom tags men­tion­ing peo­ple I met when I was two. No thanks.
