Sophie Maxwell: A Future Living Will That is Very Much ‘Alive’
Futures Director at Pearlfisher ruminates on Vivo, an algorithmic will that is as ever-changing as our lives
Vivo is a technology-driven concept service using algorithms to collate and create a true assessment of our estates and personal legacies. It is inspired by the idea of a living will that is very much ‘alive.’
The innovative service takes both our online and offline activity into account and uses algorithms to show what and who is most important in our lives—two things that become acutely relevant when it comes to matters of death.
Today, with so much of our personal data and activity stored online, we have a digital shadow that is infinite and sometimes hard to pinpoint, but we are becoming increasingly aware of the importance and value of our online information and its connection to our offline lives.
