A few months ago I read an article about this in Discover Magazine. As I realized the implications it gave me a sick, eerie feeling.
In short, suppose memories of the deceased are collected and downloaded into a program?
What you are about to see is a prototype program for what I suspect may be robotic construction for the near future of resurrecting loved ones who have passed on. In this film, the robot has not been fed responses, but is thinking for itself from what has been downloaded into its memory bank.
