Ever dreamed of being immortal?

A new tech start-up is hoping to turn that fantasy into reality by creating a 3D "digital alter ego" of yourself who will talk to your family and friends after you've died.

Since its launch earlier this year, 25,000 hopefuls have signed up to a website called Eterni.me, lured by its tagline "Simply become immortal". [...]

All the digital content you create during your lifetime will be combined with artificial intelligence. Ursache says the result will be a digital version of your personality that will "interact with and offer information and advice to your family and friends after you pass away".

In signing up, you nominated which digital streams you wanted to process - Facebook, Twitter, emails, photos, location history, maybe even data from wearable technology like Google Glass or Fitbit, Ursache said. [...]

Later, you will interact with this data in the form of an artificial intelligence avatar, or chatbot, which will try to emulate you, including how you look. As the technology advances, it will replicate your personality.[...]

I don't think think this is such a wonderful idea. It's quite narcissistic to think what I say online now will have any relevance fifty, or a hundred years from now.
Arguably, we all have our moments of clarity and insight, but I'm not so profound that people will want to interact with AI me in the future FFS.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Because "We" are already immortal, An app. like this one will prolly just piss you off as after your meat suit is done you wont be able to psychically interact with the 3-D realm but will still be able to hear the A.I. driven personality spewing stuff you no longer subscribe to.

yup.gif That would be irritating, but thankfully, nothing lasts forever in this 3d temporary.

Could it be a modern love depression?

maybe the trailer is bait ............... the movie keeps you stuck, like whats' coming next?
But at the end you'll say : what the f**k, it's about a depressed state of a looser. I just wish failure to any attempts for that service to happen.
