According to behavioral economist Daniel Kahnemann, we identify with our memories. We a do lots of things not because of the experience in itself, but for the memory of the experience. This is why we take so many photos everyday. And this is also why it’s so painful to delete our vacation photos.
But… more painful is that we have very few recorded memories from people dear to us who passed away. Maybe they left behind only a few old photos, like my grandmother… or a few more home videos, or maybe a Facebook feed.
Most people don’t write an autobiography. They don’t keep a journal. They postpone recording the most important memories of their lives until it’s too late. And years later, after their name is spoken for the last time, they are forgotten like they’ve never existed.
It happens to our family and our friends. It happens to more than 50 million people every year. And—one day—it will happen to us, too!
This is why we are building an Artificial Intelligence avatar, which curates your thoughts, stories, memories, ideas and creations, then preserves them for eternity.
This intelligent biographer automatically collects and analyzes all your digital footprint—Facebook posts, tweets, calendar meetings, geolocation, Instagram photos, health data from wearables and more.
Its also a chatbot that talks with you at the right moment, and helps you record more intimate memories—like a private journal.
Eternime also allows you to selectively share those memories with friends, family or other people, and have them contribute to writing your life story.
With this we set out to create and design a beautiful and engaging product that not only allows you to allow your story to live forever, but also has short-term psychological and social benefits. We are really excited to build something that can change the lives of billions of people.
