With artificial intelligence slowly creeping into several aspects of daily life, one company has created a way to keep terminally ill relatives alive by using AI to make interactive “digital twins” of individuals they said can speak to family members with astonishing accuracy, according to a report.

The California-based company, DeepBrain AI, collects video and audio recordings of loved ones, allowing you to speak with an AI version of them after they die, according to a PC Gamer story.

Don’t be fooled, this is not an AI “deepfake” video with predetermined responses, but rather an AI imitation of individuals based on real videos and recordings of people, the story said. The company claims its AI recreations offer a “96.5% similarity of the original person,” meaning family members and close friends will not feel uncomfortable while speaking with the AI version of the family member.

In a video example posted on the company’s YouTube page, titled “[Re;memory] To Meet You Again As a Digital Twin,” a woman spoke with an AI version of her late husband, Mr Lee, who told her to stay healthy until they meet again and reassured he loved her.

The company also said the AI twins have a response time of less than one second, making the conversations natural and realistic.

It won’t be cheap if you want an AI version of your loved one to speak with. DeepBrain AI charges as much as US$50,000 (RM235,937) for the service, according to PC Gamer.

Other AI companies have released services in the “death tech” realm, including HereafterAI, which collects and stores recordings/pictures but doesn’t generate new text or audio, and Settld, which helps cancel deceased loved one’s financial and social media accounts, the PC Gamer story said. – pennlive.com/Tribune News Service
