Microsoft has developed technology that allows you to create a virtual copy of a particular person.
An application for such technology was published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
As noted, based on data about a certain person collected in social networks, a special chat-bot will be able to generate his messages, photos and even voice recordings.
The developers will collect all available data about the person: photos, videos and voice recordings, publications, emails, handwritten materials – and based on this data will create a special personality index, which will “train” his chat-bot to respond to messages as if that person did it.
With the necessary data, the technology will even be able to generate new images of the person in 2D and 3D and record his voice.
