Everyone grieves differently. Even AI

Everyone grieves differently. Even AI

Once in a while, but altogether too often, I’m tasked with writing an obituary for a friend.

I remember writing one for my friend Mark. It wrecked me.

It requires a great deal of time, effort, and emotional energy, and it is often made even more difficult by the stress and grief of losing a loved one. Many people find it difficult to put into words what they want to say about their loved one, especially when they are feeling overwhelmed by the situation.

However, the process of writing an obituary is an important one, as it helps to commemorate the life of the deceased and give friends and family members a way to share memories and celebrate their loved one’s life. This is why it’s important to have a tool that can help people through this process. One option for those struggling is to consider leaving it to AI.

Yes, AI again.

According to Empathy CEO Ron Gura, AI can be an incredibly helpful tool for people who are struggling with the loss of a loved one. By gathering facts, providing guidance and lending support, AI can help people to write personal and thoughtful tributes for their loved ones, even when they are feeling overwhelmed or preoccupied with other tasks.

In addition, AI can help to democratize the process of writing an obituary, making it more accessible to everyone. This is particularly important for those who may not have the resources or emotional energy to write an obituary themselves. With AI, anyone can access the support they need to write a meaningful tribute to their loved one, regardless of their financial or emotional situation.

And besides, the departed isn’t around to check your grammar.
