And finally, a new social network called Eter9, which promises to post realistic statuses even after a user has died, has been launched.
Eter9 uses an artificial intelligence that reads users’ posts and generates similar posts after the user has died.
It can also post statuses while the user is alive, if the user wishes, and “smile” at things, much like a “like” on Facebook.
Around 5,000 people are currently signed up to Eter9, which many commentators have described as “morbid” and “creepy”.
A spokesperson from the social network has spoken out, saying: “We are trying to create an AI system that learns faster from other networks.”
