Jimenez tells her it’s Siri and encourages her to talk to the digital assistant.

Jimenez, who has a background in psychology, sees this heartwarming interaction and is struck by how quickly and seamlessly his daughter formed a relationship with the AI — we usually ring Siri when we need something, even if it’s a laugh.

But a generation reared on conversational interactions with technology is quickly developing a relationship with devices, AIs, and robots.

Through conversations — a mixture of prompted topics and more organic interaction — the AI will craft a model meant to “think” like you, understand your personality, and, eventually, be able to apply that model to future conditions: answering as you would, conversing like you would.

Jimenez wants to create a digital twin which would, at the least, speak in your voice, as voice can be powerfully evocative, capable of bringing how you look in their mind’s eye.

While that personal data is gathered, users can take these conversations with Mind Bank Ai as a chance to self-reflect and better get to know themselves — Socratic psychology, or “a fitness tracker for your mind”.

Jimenez envisions interacting with Mind Bank Ai as a chance to self-reflect, while all the while the digital twin becomes closer to being like you.

It is after you die that Mind Bank Ai would truly come into its own, like a digital cryogenics’ lab.

A personal digital twin is the latest iteration of an idea as old as humankind: the desire to, if not live forever, then at least be able to pass on your knowledge, experience, insights.
