I have no psychology master, but I can see this going out of hand if done without proper mentoring. Once again, technology push for ethics. Are we ready to deal with this? Will it be the new addiction?

A mother and a dead daughter reunited beyond the grave:

 Will it do more good than harm? I'm puzzled.

I don't imagine the experience in this instance can be healthy or draw any closure but each to there own i suppose.

Since when did humans ever stop to wonder if something will be harmful?

We don't build tools that we do not use, that's just how we roll.

Anything can be harmful if used in the wrong manner all the same.

"I will be able to see my child again!"

No, you'll be able to see a computerized image.

"But..."

No, it's not real. I get wanting to see them, I have friends who have lost children but that's not real, it's not them and it just prolongs the healing process in my opinion. Would I feel different if it were me? I don't know but I know right now I believe it would just extend the pain.

That's what i mean with no closure aspect.

The poor lady is simply opening up a can of worms for herself, repeatably.

As you suggest its not the kid simply a digital facsimile of such, and a poor one at that.

I don't really see how that's a response to what I wrote? We build plenty of things we don't need. We might use everything we build but we don't necessarily need to.

It's quite simple really.

If we can do a thing, we will do that thing, ethics be darned.

Like i said Humans don't create things they dont use.

I don't know anything more devastating than to lose a child... sister died at 22 and still nothing was the same anymore in family. It will be used, and probably abused.

Somewhat reminiscent of "Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead", well, the business Andy Garcia operated.

Minus the gangster violence and inclusion of VR tech i suppose.

Life imitating art, or the other way around?

I'm confused now. LoL

Decades ago I sculpted my father in ZBrush... only because we didn't have many photos of him.

But this, I would say it's going a little to far for me.... I couldn't imagine virtually seeing my father talking and moving... it wouldn't be the same.

I would be afraid it would overwrite my memories of him. 20 years from now, it'll just be memories of some computer graphics.... who wants their memories of a lost loved one lost to Ai?

Technology Will Enslave the Entire World One Day , it has been Destined since it's Inception ............(

The entire world has been enslaved for a while now.

Technology is simply a double-edged sword but the alternative does not really bear thinking about.

Put it this way, without technology and progress we would not be having this discussion in the manner that we now are.

The only issue I see is OTHER people wanting to make choices FOR ME on the basis of "ethics."

Screw your "ethics." Don't make decisions on my behalf based on what you feel.

For the record, I lost my daughter at age 47 a few months ago. I'm not asking for sympathy. I'm telling you to leave me alone and if I want to use this technology, it's really none of your damn business.

Sorry for your loss schuyler.

You do what makes you feel right, it's the only way to travel.

There is a black mirror episode for that too...

I don’t see what the problem is. My father died when I was 20 and whenever I have a dream about him I feel like I have spent time with him again.

To me, that is what the afterlife is, my brain bringing him back so we spend time together occasionally. I used to wake up and be really sad and miss him more, now I wake up thankful I spent time with him again.

We keep pictures and videos, this is no different.

If you are the type of person who watches videos 24/7 of your dead loved one then this is just another media type of media, it won’t change anything but might make it more real.

If you occasionally want to have a beer with your old man in virtual reality and a bit of a cry, this is awesome.

My mate took his own life, I think it would be a bit creepy but perhaps a good way to remember him if I could put one of our videos in VR and we could all be in that room with him one more time....

Ethics don't exist. We made them up because we know that without them (and a collective enforcement of them), the human mind is a monster.
