“We’ve seen that episode of Black Mirror.”
- “In a December 2020 patent, Microsoft outlines a process for uploading data about a person—even the deceased—to turn their likeness into a chatbot.
- Microsoft says it can use photos and voice recordings to create a 2D or 3D renderingof the person, and even give the chatbot their voice.
- This is all a little bit too reminiscent of an episode of Black Mirror wherein the main character talks to an AI version of her late partner.
No one knows where we go when we die. Microsoft might have some ideas.
Last month, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted a patent to Microsoft that outlines a process to create a conversational chatbot of a specific person using their social data. In an eerie twist, the patent says the chatbot could potentially be inspired by friends or family members who are deceased, which is almost a direct plot of a popular episode of Netflix’s Black Mirror.
In that episode, “Be Right Back,” a woman named Martha is upset when her partner, Ash, dies in a car accident on the day they were supposed to move in with each other. It turns out one of Martha’s friends has signed her up for a service that will let her communicate with Ash through text messages. Of course, it isn’t really Ash, but a sort of AI-based version of him. Suffice to say, things get weird.
According to the new Microsoft patent, images, voice data, social media posts, electronic messages, and written letters can all be used to “create or modify a specific index in the theme of the specific person’s personality.” From there, engineers can use the index to train a chatbot to converse like that person—yes, even if they’re already dead.”
