Grieving Families Can Now Speak To Dead Loved Ones From Beyond The Grave

EERIE AI tech allows grieving families to speak to dead loved ones again in creepy virtual video chats.

But the spooky privilege will cost you £1,000 / $1,200 a pop.

The tech can mimic things like voice and facial expressions thanks to ever-improving AI.

Experts want to use it to create virtual versions of lost relatives.

However, the person in question will have to help set it up before they die for it to work properly.

They would need to spend seven hours in front of a camera so that the AI can learn how you sound and move.

For this reason, it could be ideal for those with a terminal illness who want to be remembered in good health.

They’ll have to write down a load of memories and stuff about their lives so the AI tech can talk about real life events that happened to you.

While some may find the idea disturbing, developers behind the “Re;memory” project believe others will “love” it.

Joseph Murphy, from South Korean firm DeepBrain AI told the Mail Online: “We’ve already found it to be really polarising.

“Some people love the opportunity to live on forever in this way, but many people view it as inauthentic.

“People like that they can share their memories after they’re gone and they want their family to remember them in a healthy state.”

Speaking about what you might say to the virtual replica, he added: “You might ask it, ‘Tell me about the time you met Dad’ and the virtual person will be able to tell the story in full.

“The more they journal, the more realistic the experience will be.”

Setting up the virtual replica is expected to cost between £10,000 / $12,000 and £20,000 / $24,000.

And every time someone wants to chat with it they’ll have to pay £1,000 / $1,200.

Apparently, the service has already arrived in Asia and the US.

It’s set to launch in the UK sometime soon.

DeepBrain AI’s website shows how a man decided to use Re; memory for his daughter after losing his own mother very young.

“I did not want my daughter to feel the same,” the man explains.

“I wanted this for her so whenever she misses me she can always come to see me.”
