StoryFile Life Leads Effort to Preserve Veterans’ Stories Using AI

Easy to use online tools are being provided free of charge to save our heroes’ legacies; Remember WWII crowdsourcing project will create a surge of living history using StoryFile conversational video.

StoryFile, the technology company committed to preserving stories and legacies using the world’s first interactive conversational video platform, announced the launch of a gift to everyone working to preserve Veterans’ stories. Using StoryFile Life—the company’s new platform that empowers anyone to use AI-powered conversational video—those who have served the country can become living history at the touch of a button. Specifically tailored “story packs” present questions for a subject to answer that spark future conversations.

StoryFile Life will be offering two story packs—free of charge—to preserve Veterans’ stories generally. The StoryFile Life oral history team developed a set of interview questions carefully tailored to capture the stories of any Veteran (using the promo code PM-HERO21). For the second pack, StoryFile has teamed up with Remember WWII (RWWII) to offer a way for those with powerful stories about their WWII-specific experiences and military service to share their experiences (promo code PM-RWW2).

RWWII is also hosting the War Story Challenge to gather as many personal histories of WWII Veterans as possible. Now through January 31, 2022, anyone can film and submit a video interview of an Allied WWII Veteran for a chance to win $25,000. Additionally, the person who submits or conducts the largest number of interviews on StoryFile Life will win an all-expense paid trip for two people to Normandy for the 80th anniversary of the invasion in 2024. To enter the War Story Challenge visit: https://rememberww2.org/challenge. Additionally, by visiting StoryFile Life and completing a StoryFile using the promo code PM-RWW2, individuals will be automatically entered into the contest.

To achieve their mission, RWWII is using StoryFile Life’s platform and tools to crowdsource and create an interactive archive of WWII Veteran stories. StoryFile Life is making it easy to interview and record Veteran stories, and will allow generations in the future to interact with these stories in life-like real-time conversations using natural language processing. It connects pre-recorded answers about their service during WWII with questions that may arise in the present or future. Both RWWII and StoryFile are committed to preserving stories and legacies for the future, and as such it was a natural fit for RWWII to utilize StoryFile Life’s technology to crowdsource, record, and interview even more veterans.

“StoryFile is an online, automatic, and real time tool for everyone to be able to tell their own life story—and our Veterans’ stories are such an important part of our history, such important stories to capture,” said Heather Miao-Smith, StoryFile CEO & Co-Founder. “We are proud that Remember WWII is utilizing the StoryFile Life technology to crowdsource these stories, and we hope as a result, these stories reach many, many more people, across generations. Why shouldn’t everyone take on the responsibility of preserving these experiences?  As a nation, we are forever grateful to these heroes.”
