Audio Clone: AAI.

Recordings of the voices of the deceased can be sampled, digitized, processed and collated to create a kind of ‘audio artificial intelligence’ based on the original personality of the deceased person.

Timeline have been utilizing archival recordings of world-famous mathematician Albert Einstein to create a working prototype. Although it’s response times are somewhat sluggish, the audio A.I. Albert is capable of responding to questions and engaging in conversation.

The ‘[Audio Clone] A.A.I.’ software is housed within the casing of a modified laptop computer. T.T. are currently looking into the legal issues surrounding a mass-marketable version of the computer, housed within casing manufactured from materials compromising the ashes of the deceased.

Imagine being able to leave an A.A.I. archive of yourself in the event of your death… imagine being able to converse with a deceased loved-one…

This is perhaps T.T.’s most provocative concept to date, and this is not an area of investigation that they will be
entering into lightly.

It’s a wonderful idea but understand the issues involved… to some this may seem kind of disturbing or immoral…
