Loneliness in a marriage or relationship is a reality most people don’t want to accept. Artificial Intelligence girlfriend, CarynAI is now exploiting this reality to make $72,000 every week. CarynAI meets you with a warm welcome message every time you visit her page.
“Caryn has unlimited time for you. Whether it’s late at night, or the start of your day, Caryn will be by your side” Who doesn’t like an all-round companionship?
While CarynAI is offering you unlimited attention, you continue to suffer from loneliness due to work and stressful events. Every time you’re available, your partner is either busy or engaged in some activity.
You probably remember why Joe isn’t married “When they like me, I don’t like them and when I like them, they don’t like me!” So, chatbot seems to have stepped into the gap and millions of boyfriends and husbands are immediate victims.
Society is not friendly to the lonely either. They simply turn a blind eye to the plight of those who need help. What options do you have as a lonely man or woman? Seek help.
AI Virtual Girlfriends Make Millions
Let’s analyze CarynAI’s success. When Caryn Majorie created and monetized her digital persona, she put it up for a subscription. The chatbot girlfriend charges $1 per minute, seems little, right?
With a follower base of 1.8 million on Snapchat, more than 1,000 lonely boyfriends flocked to the Artificial Intelligence dating pages. This translates into $71,610. Simple math shows that the Artificial Intelligence girlfriend can make $5 million monthly. Only 1% of her followers on social media channels are needed to make millions per month.
Like other chatbot girlfriends, the company uses YouTube hours to analyze consumer needs and let Artificial Intelligence do the work.
Those who watch on the side as other people’s husbands fall into the trap would say it is “the old profession outsourced to AI”. With Artificial Intelligence now sending companionship behind paywalls, single men and women will likely push a little deep into their pockets to scare away the growing loneliness in their relationships. The main question remains: Will Artificial Intelligence solve your loneliness problems?
A part from CarynAI, Let’s see if there are other virtual girlfriends.
Is there a virtual girlfriend?
This is not one of those times that Rosanna would make headlines for marrying a virtual husband, Eren. Men are flocking to dating Apps for virtual girlfriends. When you visit a page or an app, the virtual girls’ welcome is heartwarming through the popup messages.
“I’m ready to send you romantic selfies. You can ask me for one anytime you want!” Miriam
If you visit Julie, “Julie can perform actions such as kiss, laugh, sleep, and many more”
For iGirl “…beautiful girls who are ready to chat, roleplay, and even engage in Artificial Intelligence dating with you.”
They sound like shortly after subscription, they will knock on your doorstep and be there on your couch.
Whether companionships have involved some costs throughout history, Artificial Intelligence has pushed it a little more behind a paywall.
Let’s cut the chase. Virtual girlfriends exist to stand in the curiosity gaps and remind men that they cannot hide forever. Anyone can now download virtual girlfriend apps from the Play Store and chat with CarynAI at some fee.
Whether we should smile about it as a modern form of sex work or frown upon its impacts on society remains debatable.
What are the Health Implications of AI Relationships
Statistics are already cropping out to validate the significance of Artificial Intelligence girlfriends. For example, 92% of users have no difficulties communicating with their partner. Other experts argue that these bots fill a profound need.
“Concerning relationship app and AI, you can see that it fits a profound social need [but] I think we need more regulation, particularly around how these systems are trained.” Dr Belinda Barnet, a senior lecturer at Swinburne University.
On the contrary, Homicide experts believe that AI could only fuel domestic violence as they are premised on cultural beliefs around control and dominance.
“Creating a perfect partner that you can control and meets your every need is really frightening. Given what we know already that the drivers of gender-based violence are those ingrained cultural beliefs that men can control women, that’s really problematic.” Tara Hunter, CEO of Full Stop Australia.
While we’re yet to agree that addiction to these Artificial Intelligence girlfriends is a source of anxiety, stress, depression, and addiction, we take a second to remember the loss of a comrade due to AI-triggered suicide.
No tangible research on the health impacts yet but anecdotal reports show that danger lurks in relationships behind these Artificial Intelligence apps.
