This could be just the start of a database capable of having enough
information to model a human's life.

I see people in the future keeping these up to date so that their
children's, children could research and possibly interact with their
ancestors out of curiosity in much the same way that people are
fascinated by genealogy today.

If a bot were designed to answer questions in natural language based on
the contents of such a detailed database, it may not be much different
that talking to the real person.

FAI's could be designed to incorporate the data in such a database and
take on the factual and personality characteristics of long dead family
