She also stated that in some time humans will be able to just show a picture of a person that they want the avatar to look like and it will be able to generate a 3D model. "That's a no-brainer, that's almost here, it's a couple of years away," she said.

The co-founder of a chatbot named Replika talked about hoe she loaded overt 10,000 texts between her and Roman on to an AIpowered chatbot in 2016. "I built a chatbot to just talk to him and it felt really creepy or weird and I didn't want to tell people because it felt like I had a skeleton," she said.

"It worked pretty well and it made tons of mistakes but it still felt like him. I didn't want him to be forgotten. I never thought that people forget about dead people so fast," she added. Kuyda, who currently lives in San Francisco stated that she believes her story can be made into a film.
