The Journey to Digital Immortality

Could an AI avatar collect all your thoughts and memories, then become a digital clone of yourself and “live” forever?

Ignition: The MIT Entrepreneurship Development Program

In January 2014 I was one of the 120 people accepted in MIT’s intensive program for entrepreneurs. Intensive as in learn & experiment for 20 hours or more per day with some of the top minds in the world, aiming to transform an idea into a fully-thought potential startup. It seemed the best opportunity to take the crazy “Skype with the dead” idea to the next level and get onboard with mavericks that could bring this absurd thing closer to being real.

Our end goal is to preserve the thoughts, stories and memories of entire generations and create a library of human memories, one where you could ask people in the past about their individual or collective experiences and thoughts.

What you can do when saying goodbye to the deceased who died in the new corona

HOCITGROUP successfully applied for a patent to create a chatbot that mimics the voice of the deceased

AI service that allows you to “converse” with the deceased

It is said that there is a possibility to create a chat box based on AI and based on a person's profile. Profiles include a variety of personal information, including "images, voice data, SNS posts, emails and messages." Chatbots will be able to simulate human conversations through voice commands, text chat, or both.

On the digital immortality platform, the deceased lives on by transforming into a 'life story avatar'. The avatar speaks in the voice of the deceased that was recorded while they were still alive. When family members speak to the deceased's voice avatar using smart speakers, mobile apps or PC apps, voice recognition technology like "Alexa" is activated and pre-recorded stories, memories, jokes, songs, and even advice. is returned.

For example, in ChatGPT, "Become a deceased grandmother."

Paid users can access the avatar of the deceased and ask questions of the avatar. For example, "What's your earliest memory?", "Tell me about your relationship with your mom", and "When was the last time you were proud of yourself?" The answer comes back in the voice of the deceased that was recorded while alive. Recording your life story itself is free, but you'll need to sign up for a plan starting at $39 a year to share your avatar with family and friends.
