It’s time to start backing up our brains! According to a recent article in New Scientist, the creating of computer avatars based on your own brain patterns and appearance isn’t as far off as TV Series Caprica would have it. A Santa Monica company named Image Metrics has been able to create staggeringly photo realistic versions of faces that can move with stunning detail.
Once we have the physical appearance ready, we need the interaction to be something other than an upgraded version of a Chatbot (Plenty of NSFW content in this chatbot’s brain). The technology isn’t quite there yet, but even here we’re making big steps.
The technology involved may still be years off, but we’re convinced that it won’t be long before you have to ask yourself if it’s your friend or his simulated avatar you’re talking to.
