People will be able to ‘live on’ after death thanks to powerful AI technology, a computer expert has claimed.

Dr Ajaz Ali said that loved ones who pass away will continue to exist in a digital form thanks to Artificial Intelligence ‘capturing’ their looks and personality.

Dr Ali, Head of Business and Computing at Ravensbourne University, claims that in the future humans may be able to upload a ‘digital twin’ of themselves.

The ‘twin’ will be captured from the living person using recordings, analysis of their digital footprint and things like motion capture and images for their visual presence.

This twin would then be able to ‘live on’ after death, allowing bereaved relatives to interact with their loved one, despite them having died.
