What if a digital version of yourself could live on after your death? Your face, your voice, as well as memories or anecdotes would be recorded. Is it conceivable that a hundred years from now your great-granddaughter could talk to your avatar about life in 2024? Or that a mother of a deceased toddler can speak to her now "digitally raised" child? And do we want that?

A conversation about the ethical, psychological as well as technical aspects of AI and immortality.
Panel discussion with Prof. Marnix Verduyn (Declarative Languages and Artificial Intelligence, KU Leuven), Katleen Gabriels (moral and technological philosopher, Maastricht University) and Zoë Ghyselinck (postdoctoral researcher modern and contemporary representations of communication with the dead, KU Leuven)
Moderation by Pieter Gordts (journalist De Morgen)


This talk will be in Dutch
