Almost

In one of the episodes of the TV series "Black Mirror" was a story about how a young girl, worrying about a dead young man, ordered him a "copy" based on artificial intelligence technologies. Repeatedly "Black Mirror" was a prophetic series and something similar happened today: in Japan, represented by robots, which mimic the voice and behavior of the deceased person. These robots even made masks of the faces of dead people.

Immediately it is worth noting that the use of such robots, the inhabitants of the land of the rising sun can only 49 days. This number of days is a period of mourning after the funeral of a relative. And the developers believe that this way will be easier to survive the loss.

At the same time the creation of such a robot is better to think in advance. The person needs to meet with a number of specialists, who will find out the features of the individual, will record the speech and gestures, and also scan the face for printing on a 3D printer. Based on these results, the program is created, which after death is set in the robot together with the face. The robot mimics the personality and movements of the hands, head, speech and all other data received from the deceased.

Responsible For the development of Etsuko Ichihara and her company Digital Shaman. Ichihara said she came up with the concept of such a robot after the death of his grandmother.

"I remember some things from the funeral. Makeup was applied to the face of my dead grandmother. We put flowers in her casket. After she was cremated, our family scattered her ashes. It was a shocking ritual."

Then Minato felt that after death the departed person very quickly becomes "far". So she came to the idea of creating a robot. After someone dies, the family can spend 49 days with the car before they can accept the death of their loved one.

"I think it how to write a will. Users can write any message they want. I think this will seriously help those who can't move on after tragic events."
