There are already companies engaged in creating facsimiles of deceased people.
HereAfter AI is one of a number of startups promising digital
immortality through chatbots, AI and even holograms like the ones of
Holocaust survivors’ stories. A Japanese project even envisions robots
that look and act like the dead.

The chatbots use recorded speech to imitate the deceased person's speech.
The AI will continue to improve the imitation.
