Persona Synthetics Advertisement

Questions of Interest:

– What is a ‘synth’? ‘An advanced robotic servant’ – what does that mean? How are the two terms linked?

– Why is this fake (synthetic) advertisement so very disturbing?

– How does it combine subtlety and fear to become borderline believable?

– Also, it is not ‘synthetic people’ branded here, it is synthetic personas.

About ejpollard

I was awarded my PhD from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK in December 2013. My thesis explored the notions of origin and ellipsis in the writing of contemporary British novelist Hilary Mantel. I want this blog to express the ideas I have in and around my academic writing. View all posts by ejpollard
