People are speaking with ChatGPT for hours, bringing 2013’s Her closer
to reality
Long mobile conversations with the AI assistant using AirPods echo the
sci-fi film.

In 2013, Spike Jonze's Her imagined a world where humans form deep
emotional connections with AI, challenging perceptions of love and
loneliness. Ten years later, thanks to ChatGPT's recently added voice
features, people are playing out a small slice of Her in reality,
having hours-long discussions with the AI assistant on the go.

Throughout the past year, we've seen reports of people falling in love
with chatbots hosted by Replika, which allows a more personal
simulation of a human than ChatGPT. And with uncensored AI models on
the rise, it's conceivable that someone will eventually create a voice
interface as capable as ChatGPT's and begin having deeper
relationships with simulated people.

Are we on the brink of a future where our emotional well-being becomes
entwined with AI companionship? The psychological implications of such
deep connections, especially in the absence of human interaction, are
yet to be fully understood.

Add this into robot sex dolls and the human race happily goes extinct.
