VR technology helps a mother reunite with her deceased daughter

AKP STAFF

A viral Youtube video has garnered attention from netizens for its heartbreaking and touching content.

7-year old Nayeon passed away after being diagnosed with leukemiain 2017. However, due to current technology, professionals were able to recreate Nayeon in a VR experience. 

A special segment of the MBC special 'VR Human Documentary' showed a team using deep learning and AI to not only recreate Nayeon's likeness, but also her voice and movements using past videos and recordings of her. What ensued was a touching virtual reunion for Nayeon's mother who was able to finally say goodbye to her child.

Check out the video above.

I have mixed feelings about this. This seems like you would never have any sort of closure about your deceased loved one. On the other hand, I am a mother to a 3 year old and I have no idea what lengths I would go to just to see her or feel her presence again. I can't imagine my life without my daughter. This is sad and heartbreaking. If these brings this woman some peace and joy even for a brief moment. I am happy for her.
