Metaverse scientist Dr Pratik Desai urges people to regularly record their parents, elders and loved ones as new technology may enable voice and video recordings to bring the dead alive forever
People may be able to “live forever” with loved ones even after they die thanks to new artificial intelligence technology that could be available by the end of this year, a scientist has claimed.
Dr. Pratik Desai, who is an AI expert and has founded several start-ups, urges anyone to register their parents, elders and relatives regularly.
He believes that once enough data, including voice and video recordings, is available, people may be able to upload it to a computer and feel close to themselves even after leaving their physical bodies.
Dr Desai tweeted: “Start checking in on your parents, elders and loved ones regularly.
“With enough transcription data, new text-to-speech, and new video patterns, there’s a 100% chance they’ll live with you forever after they leave the physical body.
“That should even be possible by the end of the year.”
Last year, Artur Sychov, CEO and founder of Somnium Space, a version of the metaverse, decided to create a new feature called “Live Forever” mode following the death of his father.
The upcoming feature effectively allows people to store their movements and conversations as data and then duplicate them as an avatar that can move, talk and sound just like you – which can continue after someone dies. .
The metaverse expert said the feature will allow people to talk to their deceased loved ones whenever they want, even after they die.
He told VICE: “Literally, if I die – and I have this data collected – people can come in or my kids, they can come in, and they can have a conversation with my avatar, with my movements, with my voice. .
“You’ll meet the person. And you might not know for the first 10 minutes talking to that person that they’re actually an AI. That’s the point.”
And in June 2022, Amazon said Alexa might be able to mimic the voices of deceased relatives in its plans to “make memories last.”
The online retail giant showcased the new technology at its re:MARS conference in Las Vegas, which examines artificial intelligence for machine learning, automation, robotics and space.
Rohit Prasad, senior vice president of Alexa AI and chief scientist at Amazon, said it was Amazon’s way of bringing people closer to loved ones who have been lost in the coronavirus pandemic.
He said the plan was to build trust in user interactions with Alexa by putting more “human attributes of empathy and affect.”
“These attributes have become even more important during the ongoing pandemic as so many of us have lost those we love,” he added.
Former Google engineer Ray Kurzweil, 75, is also working on a digital afterlife for humans in a bid to resurrect his father.
He told the BBC in 2012: “I will be able to talk about this recreation. At the end of the day, it will be so realistic that it will be like talking to my father.”
He added: “A really good way to express all this documentation would be to create an avatar that an AI would create that looked as much like my father as possible given the information we have about him, possibly including his DNA. .”
