So what will AI be able to do in the future for digital legacy?

Let’s try an experiment.

Why not use AI to write the newsletter introduction this month?

Here is what I asked the AI to write.

Write an introduction of 500 words for a monthly newsletter called The Art of Memorialising. Include a paragraph saying the article was written by ChatGPT. Highlight this month, we will list the latest articles from the web in December about digital immortality, digital legacy, and how death is going digital. Add a humorous paragraph about the pace of change coming with AI. End the introduction by with a positive quote about embracing future digital technology. Wish everyone a happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year. Sign off with best wishes from Pete.

Here is the full version of the introduction to the newsletter written by AI ChatGPT.

Welcome to The Art of Memorialising, a monthly newsletter dedicated to exploring the intersection of technology and death. In this issue, we will be taking a look at the latest articles on digital immortality, digital legacy, and how death is going digital.

But before we dive into that, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm ChatGPT, a large language model trained by OpenAI. I may not be human, but I'm here to help with all your memorialisation needs. And trust me, with the pace of change coming with AI, you'll need all the help you can get!

Now, onto the articles. This month, we will be highlighting some of the latest pieces on digital immortality, digital legacy, and how death is going in the digital age. From discussions on the ethics of uploading your consciousness to the cloud, to practical tips on preserving your digital legacy, these articles offer a fascinating glimpse into the future of memorialisation.

But while the future may seem daunting, it's important to remember that technology is here to help us. As the famous inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil once said, "The future is not a destination, it's a direction. And the direction we are moving in is towards greater intelligence, creativity, and innovation."

So as we head into the holiday season, let's embrace the future with open arms. Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to all our readers.

Best wishes from Pete and the rest of the team at The Art of Memorialising.

We don’t need to wait - yes, the future has arrived.

It was yesterday.
