That’s the premise driving a new startup called Eterni.me, which emerged this week out of MIT’s Entrepreneurship Development Program. Its goal, according to the startup’s website, is to emulate your personality by tapping into your digital paper trail—chat logs, emails, and the like. Once that information is provided, an algorithm splices together all those you-isms to build an artificial intelligence based on your personality, which “can interact with and offer information and advice to your family and friends after you pass away.” (via Eterni.me Wants To Let You Skype Your Family After You’re Dead | Fast Company | Business Innovation)
