On average we have about 6000 thoughts everyday. What if we could record, track and classify all those thoughts. And feed it into a giant neural network to make a virtual version of yourself.
Writing, speaking, drawing, tweets, vlogs and all other forms of “content” we create are conscious to some extent. However our thoughts are a constant stream. Like a fire hose. Mixed with both conscious and serendipitous thoughts.
Could this virtual self be more objective and less susceptible to emotions. Or will it also have your biases built into it. Could you have this virtual self answer calls for you. Reply to messages?
Could we use this set of thoughts to spawn other forms of virtual interactions. Perhaps chatbots. Imagine a customer support chatbot modelled after Gordon Ramsay. Hilarious.
