In other words, life is about to change. We're about to be able to have AI-driven digital ghosts that interact with living persons and other AI's as a copy of us. These Digital Ghosts, or intelligent avatars will have access to the vast digital archives of everything we did, said, wrote, photgraphed, or recorded while we are alive.

If you think of an on-off switch (Like a light switch) as a digital device, on is represented by a "1," and off is represented by a "0."

Binary numbers are used by computers. They have only the digits 1 and 0. In digital electronics, 1 represents on, and 0 represents off.

If you think of us living beings and our digital ghosts, we are the 1, and when we go to our 0, the digital ghost goes active. The digital ghosts are our zeroes.

So how would you name your digital ghost?

I think the convention should be based on our names. A living person should be named:

Firstname. Middlename.Lastname.1.Birthlocation.Birthyear. 

Our digital ghost should then be named:


So our digital ghost becomes our "dot zero."

Most people would probably rather have a fairly accurate representation of who they were as a person in their .0. So how do you have a great .0 ? Most things that get done well are done with some kind of planning. So there will be a new field of consulting in the near future; Planning for your Dot Zero.

This concept was originally conceived as a Halloween podcast special episode for the Midwestern Geek In Cali podcast. That episode (EP-021) will be available on the morning of Halloween 2017, or 10/31/2017 at 05:00 am Pacific time.

It covers a lot more ground than I have done in this preliminary post.

I'll be back later with a full transcript of the podcast episode and a direct link to the episode audio after it goes hot on Halloween morning.
