Artificial Intelligence expert Dr. Pratik Desai, who has founded several Silicon Valley startups, made waves online after he tweeted that people should be able to “live forever” by the end of the year.
He explained that uploading videos of elders and loved ones will allow technology to synthesize their looks and voices after they leave their physical bodies.
“Start regularly recording your parents, elders and loved ones,” Desai wrote on Saturday. “With enough transcript data, new voice synthesis and video models, there is a 100% chance that they will live with you forever after leaving physical body. This should be even possible by end of the year.”
