With the slogan “when your heart stops breathing, you’ll keep tweeting”, the developers of LivesOn claim that your Twitter account can keep tweeting forever, similar to the way you tweeted, after you die. According to the website, the LivesOn artificial intelligence engine analyzes your Twitter feed, learning your interests and syntax to ‘train’ itself to become an online reflection of you. In contrast to other managers of your social media afterlife, LivesOn mimics your personality to pretend that you never even died. Your followers might not even notice the difference.
LivesOn is developed by Lean Mean Fighting Machine, in collaboration with Queen Mary, University of London. Currently the website allows pre-subscriptions but has not announced an official launch.
