Weird World: People Can Chat With Dead Loved Ones Using Virtual Reality

People can make contact with their dead relatives using virtual reality.

Artificial intelligence experts in South Korea are able to create virtual reality humans that are able to mimic voices and facial expressions.

Tech experts from DeepBrain AI insist that their technology will help friends and family cope with grief even if the AI costs £1,000 at a time.

DeepBrain AI’s Joseph Murphy knows that the tech will divide opinion but suggested that those with terminal illnesses should spend time with the tech to leave lasting memories for their loved ones.

He said: “We’ve already found it to be really polarising.

“Some people love the opportunity to live on forever in this way but many people view it as an inauthentic.

“But people like that they can share their memories after they’re gone and they want their family to remember them in a healthy state.”

However, Sue Gill, a volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Support, said: “This sounds bizarre and ghoulish. This feels slightly like they are preying on the bereaved.”
