Replika AI, the app created by Russian programmer Euginia Kuyda, uses a person’s digital conversations and history to create a AI-powered chatbot that replicates their communication patterns. In their study, the researchers applied Replika AI to deceased individuals through the collection of digital memories and accounts from this person’s friends and close ones.
The AI system they proposed would be a 3-D digital avatar that looks and sounds like a deceased loved one. This avatar would access digital data directly from the cloud.
This is how the characters in my novels were created.
