Joe Magee / Wall Street Journal / Should we use AI to re-create loved ones after they die?

Joe Magee

Joe Magee was commissioned by Wall Street Journal to illustrate a feature, “Should we use AI to re-create loved ones after they die?”. The process involves, for example, creating chat bots using voice cloning and photo manipulation. Many letters are published arguing both for an against. Many people see it as postponing the important grieving process, and a risk of becoming lost in the fantasy. Others believe it can shift our feelings about the dead in a positive way.
