#13 - AI - The Perfect Boyfriend or Girlfriend
AI - the future of relationships?
In this episode, we discuss a study involving PTSD patients divided into two groups: one group conversed with a human psychiatrist, while the other group conversed with a digital avatar. The findings revealed that patients were more forthcoming with the bot due to its patient and non-judgmental nature.
We mention how movies like "X Machina" and "Her" anticipated this development years ago, highlighting the rapid progress in the field of artificial intelligence.
We also talk about the business potential of teaching bots to mimic humans and renting time with them for a fee. We give examples of renting time with influential figures like Steve Jobs or Elon Musk with AI tools like character.ai or replica.ai that create replicas of other individuals for conversation purposes.
