What if you could talk to Steve Jobs? Or if you could ask Steve Jobs anything? This man turned the idea into reality. Gonny van der Zwaag | iCulture.nl – 21 March 2023, 10:25 whatsappfacebooktwittertelegramlinkedinmailprint
Steve Jobs chatbot
Appmaker John H. Meyer used AI to train Steve Jobs' voice and the result is… quite impressive. He used the ChatGPT API and paired it with FaceBook Messenger so he can have two-way conversations with Steve Jobs on any subject imaginable. For example, Steve Jobs can tell you in detail what the impact of COVID-19 has been (even in Spanish!), while the man already died in 2011. Suggestions quickly surfaced on Twitter that this is a great way to get in touch with the deceased – and that turns out to be no coincidence.
Meyer built the application because his father passed away unexpectedly at the age of fifty. He would have liked to discuss a lot more, but of course that was no longer possible. By regularly hearing his voice and having conversations, the man manages to deal with his loss a little better. In addition, he has been in therapy to talk about the traumatic experience with a real person.
This is crazy and absolutely surreal!

It seems that Meyer is planning to use a ‘Forever Voices’ system to allow more people to connect with a deceased person. is not, because it has been happening for some time that deceased artists give a virtual performance with the help of holograms, but it becomes very personal when it is a former lover and people end up in an illusion that they no longer want to get out of. a Steve Jobs impersonation is somewhat less likely.There have been previous initiatives to connect virtually with famous people, such as With Delphi, which uses data from speeches and other public appearances to provide a Steve Jobs-style response
But hearing Jobs's voice in a way that is astounding ec ht seems – that is a different experience.
