New technology has arrived that allows you to talk to your dead loved ones, letting you live with them inside your smartphone. The app that allows us to talk to dead is created by the California-based company HereAfter AI, which aims to enable communication between the living and the dead. So exactly how does this technology work, and most importantly is it legit or a scam to get people’s attention!
Ever since science fiction first imagined it, people have wanted to find a way to communicate with the dead. Healthcare providers and spiritualists have been hoping for something like this for decades, and now it is finally becoming a reality. With the advancement of AI and voice technology, this is becoming increasingly accessible.
Our loved ones may be gone, but their digital copies continue to live on. Some people might find this technology creepy or unsettling, but for those who have lost someone close to them, it can be a way to keep their memory alive. Some people say that talking to virtual versions of loved ones who have died could make your grief last longer or make you lose touch with reality, but for many, it is a way to cope with their loss.
The worries are comprehensible. Talking to a digital version of your family members who have died can feel strange. But the individuals who have lost their loved ones can quickly grasp the idea of technology. If it gives you a sense of ease, then there is no issue with doing so.
So exactly How Does the Technology Work?
The App enables users to chat and interact with people from the past or present. The technology sounds like something straight out of an episode of Black Magic. Protocol, a tech news site, was the first to report the news. The App will not only enable you to talk with a deceased friend, celebrity, or historical figure, but also with your deceased family members.
Hereafter AI is able to recognize anyone’s voice and personal information through videos, letters, or voice recordings. This allows smartphones and other smart devices to interact with the bot in a more efficient way. Rather than having entirely new conversations every time, Hereafter AI keeps track of a person’s life story.
The biggest issue with a lot of grief tech is that it’s too vague. The voice may resemble someone you know, but they lack the personal connection. They’ll respond in the same way no matter who’s talking to them. Asking the same question will result in hearing the same response over and over.
As Rohit Prasad, Alexa’s senior vice president said, while AI cannot eliminate the pain of loss, it can definitely make the memories last.
