Participants include patients with terminal illnesses who have given permission for their social media posting to be analyzed. This will allow you to train neural networks so that they imitate the behavior of people.

According to the researchers, this will allow digital copies to preserve the legacy of the originals and communicate with relatives in the future. The fact is that among the participants there are high-class specialists who want to be “digitized” in this way.

At the same time, so far, scientists recognize that it is impossible to fully copy the style of behavior of a deceased person. The neural network will not be able to duplicate it completely.
