Eugenia Kuyda, an AI researcher, lost a close friend in a car accident.
He was only in his 20s. She did not want to lose his memory, so she gathered all of the texts he had sent over the course of his life and made a chatbot from them. The chatbot is programmed to respond automatically to text messages so that Eugenia can talk to her friend as if he were still alive. It responds to her questions using his own words. Do you think this kind of interaction is creepy or comforting to someone who is grieving? Is it disrespectful of the dead, especially if the dead person has not given their consent? What if the friend had agreed to have their texts mashed up in this way in a “pre-death digital agreement”? Would that be more socially acceptable?
