I hope you are not hallucinating and/or having conversations with those who have passed on from this earthly life. This article and podcast episode by Daniel Lopez are in reference to this topic (that is talking to the dead) that has become popular in AI in Ed circles. He spoke with Google Trainer and ed consultant Tom Mullaney regarding his strong opions on the topic.

My thoughts on this idea of using Generative AI chat to have conversations with historical figures are swirling, but mostly centered around Tom's caution. Let's hold on just a second and really think about what we are doing and teaching.
