MyLife is an AI-assisted platform for capturing, curating, and showcasing our most cherished human ideas, artifacts, and experiences. Founded on humanist ideals, MyLife seeks to provide equitable access to AI-driven services designed to facilitate the secure collection of our member data so that MyLife members will be both own their own data and be able to create custom ai-agents with knowledge of their goals, their values, their networks and their past.

A crucial distinction between MyLife and the other AI tools available is that it supports the digital dignity of users through data and expression ownership, and develops its design to encourage introspection and empathy. You, the member, are the primary stakeholder in our services, not the bottom-line, and we’re building the MyLife platform to provide the tools we need to help us all tell our stories and digitally present ourselves to the future according to our terms, not Google’s.

MyLife’s Mission

The objective of MyLife is to provide a durable, enduring AI-assisted internet-enabled platform — that shall be free of charge to members — to collect and prepare for memorial showcase an individual’s cherished personal media and information to be shared in perpetuity.

Each human should have their own preserved place on the internet where they can be remembered to posterity, and we should each have the right to build that ourselves.

What would such a platform to help us preserve ourselves for posterity even look like?

I guess it could look like anything, but for today, here’s how it looks and functions… so let’s get to it!

Capture Your Story

MyLife’s begin with a personal biographer bot. I named mine madrigal through the interface on the right side. You can choose whether you’d like the experience to be more like being interviewed, or sharing stories with someone expecting a lot of narrative color from you. I also find it helpful to choose some preferred subjects from the right-hand bar that my biographer bot will keep in mind, and bring up from time to time when I am stumped for something to speak about.

With a little help from madrigal to get started, I share a memory from my childhood.

After I’ve shared this memory, madrigal creates a story summary and titled the memory for me. From thereon, I can view and edit the summary by myself or in collaboration with madrigal.

Curate Your Story

In addition to direct editing of memories, your biographer will be able to help compile your narratives into a memoir or biography.

Additionally, your biographer will have access to any files you’ve uploaded, listed in your Library under ‘File Collection’ shown in the screenshot below.

Share Your Stories with Others and Posterity

With MyLife, sharing your stories, loves, identities and ideas, to the degree you consent, is easy. MyLife accomplishes this through a truly novel mechanic we simply call: Experiences.

I will delve into our tutorial Experience in the next article, where I demonstrate everything from the basic Experienceof your primary ai-assistant to multimedia Experiences you yourself can design that are the equivalent of a scripted play with the capacity for dynamic intelligent improvisation on the spot!

I’m incredibly excited to share it! But meanwhile enjoy this teaser image of how these works, with forgiveness to my graphics.
