Microsoft is betting that you will. Seems ghoulish.


https://twitter.com/IGN/status/1352390788613857284



The tech giant has raised the possibility of creating an AI-based chatbot that would be built upon the profile of a person, which includes their "images, voice data, social media posts, electronic messages," among other types of personal information. It's understood that the chatbot would then be able to simulate human conversation through voice commands and/or text chats.

However, Microsoft has taken the concept a step further by suggesting that a 2D or 3D model of a specific person could potentially be created, using "images and depth information, or video data" of an individual in order to build a chatbot that has the same characteristics and behaviour based on the digital output of a specific person.

"The specific person [who the chat bot represents] may correspond to a past or present entity (or a version thereof), such as a friend, a relative, an acquaintance, a celebrity, a fictional character, a historical figure, a random entity, etc.," the patent explains. "The specific person may also correspond to oneself (e.g., the user creating/training the chat bot."

I'd lose my loving mind. Literally, I would not be okay. Someone would find me dead across my keyboard with "you aren't my husband" posted a few thousand times on the screen.

If it helps people, that's great. It ain't for me.

My grandma was very engaged with the local catholic church and whatever social injustices that were conveyed through 1990's PBS. That being said, no I have no desire to talk with a bot that extrapolates her personality through available data at the time. Plus some dumb loving robot couldn't bake some bomb rear end cookies and meals so it can gently caress off right back to cyberland with Alphie II and Poo-Chi the robot dog.

If you're asking if I would accept a robot that would make me tasty foods, then yes I would accept it. In fact it would be better if it would make good food without reminding me of my dead relative.
