Grandma passed away last year, but she's coming back for Thanksgiving dinner this year.
This may sound like a horror story, but it could be the future of family reunions if you ask some of these panelists. And, if we can bring Tupac back to do a show w/ Dre and Snoop, then why can't we bring Grandma?
A lot of technology has to jive in order to do this well though - and of course, great attention to ethics must be paid. But no one can argue that we are living at an exciting time when video technology, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and predictive software are coming together making it possible to ‘reconstruct Grandma’: to put together all the personal data we have – videos, photos, the sound of her voice, her Facebook feed, etc. – and create a hologram of her or a virtual world we can visit whenever we want to see and talk to her.
In this session, learn from experts in the areas of virtual reality, social data, and memory what the future may look like.
