Justin Harrison on Virtual Posthumous Communications

In this episode of Data Driven, Frank and Andy interview Justin Harrison, the founder and CEO of YOV, You Only Virtual.

YOV aims to develop means to provide posthumous communications, or being able to converse with the dead.

This is not done via paranormal communications, seances, or ouija boards, this is using AI to preserve a person’s communications style in order to out live them.

This is quite the interesting talk that touches upon philosophy, theology, ethics, and mathematics.
