Listening to BBC Radio 4 last night i was introduced to Replika. This can be either gender and can be sexual or not but is a (AI) virtual friend, and possibly lover.
What do we think?
I’m interested in two thoughts here
1 - What do we think of the concept? if we assume technology can at some point produce a ‘caring’ human like persona do we want it? I’ve put caring in quotes here because this is AI and as such is not real but the result of an algorithum.
2 - This implementation: does it work?
