Apparently Amazon has been working on adding deepfakes of dead people to Alexa’s feature set.
And this is something they’ve undertaken voluntarily; and are voluntarily talking up in public, not some sort of leak.
Responses on a scale from 1 to “at long last we’ve created the torment nexus from the sci-fi classic Don’t Create the Torment Nexus”?
I’m sure they’ve got someone working on slightly-animated portraits (hogwarts adjacent) with your dead relative “living” inside and ordering next-day junk for you. For extra fee(s) you can add various scenes/activities for your loved one to enjoy in their digital afterlife.
A little late to the game, aren’t they? That “Be Right Back” episode of Black Mirror aired back in 2013.
