Whether it’s losing track of a conversation or forgetting a brilliant idea, Luther AI doesn’t want that happening anymore. This new virtual assistant will keep track of your memories for you.
The creators of Luther AI believe that the “limitations of human memory significantly hinders the potential of human intelligence.” It creates stacks of your personal memories, collected through your conversations and messages. Its website calls it an artificial intelligence extension of your memories.
Working of Luther AI
Like any other artificial intelligence assistant, Luther relies on collected data to answer your questions. However, unlike Google Assistant or Siri, Luther AI creates stacks from your personal memories only.
It means that you can ask Luther AI “What was I saying?” just like you’d ask Google Assistant, the capital of Canada (it’s Ottawa). This is enabled by Stacks, a structured timeline of your memory, divided into blocks and backed by AI. Blockchains secure this data.
It is built on human conversational memory, which is highly private to an individual, according to the website. The assistant claims to ensure end-to-end user privacy and confidentiality.
While you can get early access to Stacks, a new ‘Prime’ function is coming soon to the platform. Prime will allow you to interact or chat with your memory and quickly recall whatever you were looking for.
Straight Outta Altered Carbon
If you’ve watched Altered Carbon on Netflix, you’ll know what I’m talking about. For the uninitiated, Altered Carbon is a sci-fi series on Netflix. Set in the year 2034, the series shows humans storing all their memories into Cortical Stacks.
These stacks would then upload it to a cloud, allowing humans to change bodies (sleeves) and become immortal. However, if a person’s stack is destroyed, they die.
The idea of Luther AI backing up your memories in ‘Stacks’ sounds right out of Altered Carbon. With the computational capability to backup every memory, we might as well become immortal, at least on computers.
