Interviewed about Chatbots of the Dead

Press/Media: Expert Comment or Interview


The story is going to be about the use of AI and other technologies in order to "bring back" dead loved ones. Some examples are chatbots that have been modeled to simulate a loved one's voice or text messages, or the StoryFile AI that recently simulated a dead grandmother in the UK. The author wanted to explore this intersection of technology and the grieving process, diving into the hairy ethical nature of the issue and exploring how it might (re)define what life and loss looks like.
