Have you heard of the AI (artificial intelligence) takeover?
In recent years, whispers of AI - and its immeasurable potential - have been steadily becoming louder. As of 2023, AI has seemingly taken over the Internet and indeed the whole world. It's generally considered be a good technological innovation; AI can reduce workloads, promote efficiency in business, and perform tasks with lightning speed, often for little to no investment, or even error. It can be used for fun, too, just check out all the new apps that have come out this year utilizing it. However, there are some downsides to the takeover of AI.
As a eulogy writer, one of the most glaring downsides is this: the lack of real human connection. In a time of mourning, over the loss of someone you deeply loved, the human touch is still desperately needed. AI is not sentient in this way (not yet, anyway), and a robot can't really understand what you are feeling.
I do appreciate how accessible AI is, to everyone. It's no secret that AI can literally write a one-of-a-kind speech for you, using just a few prompts. That includes a eulogy. There's no denying that this can be a wonderful thing for so many people, and if you are one of them, more power to you! I believe that every loved one deserves a quality eulogy, and I love to see it happen, even if it's with help from AI. As I continue to learn more about this application and the many positive ways it can be utilized, also know that I am still here for you with any questions you may have concerning your speech.
Keeping that in mind, I do want to assure you that Eulogies by Aubrey has never, and will never, use AI in this way. Every single eulogy order I receive is responded to and written by my own hand, using the beautiful thoughts you provide through my online eulogy order form (found here). And every single email or message you send to me, is thoughtfully responded by myself as quickly as possible. I may never be as quick or expedient as a robot, but I promise you, my heart is real : )
