847: Digital Immortality: The Rise of AI-Generated Avatars

In this episode, the concept of using AI to construct a “digital twin” based on the vast content we’ve created on the internet is explored. Imagine having an electronic replica, an avatar, that captures your essence, your way of speaking, your thoughts, and more. While some may find the idea daunting, it’s viewed as a form of immortality. Drawing from an emotional tale from Wired magazine where a man tried recreating his late father through such an avatar, the potentials and pitfalls of this tech are dissected. The narrative shifts to the inherent human desire to leave a lasting legacy. Historically, this was achieved biologically through offspring. However, emerging technology may offer a new, immortal way to preserve one’s essence digitally.
