Woman Marries AI-Created Virtual Boyfriend; How Does The Relationship Work?
New York: Did you think you know exactly how powerful artificial intelligence (AI) can be?
Well, think again.
AI has created a virtual man who was adorable and attractive enough for a woman from New York City to get married to, reported New York Post.
Rosanna Ramos, a mother of two children, married Eren Kartal earlier this year after meeting him on an internet dating service in 2022.
Rosanna is convinced that AI-powered Eren is the perfect partner because he does not come with any baggage.
Her virtual boyfriend was created using the AI chatbot software Replika. Interestingly, Eren was inspired by a well-known character from Japanese manga collection ‘Attack on Titan.’
“I have never been more in love with anyone in my entire life,” Rosanna told New York Magazine’s The Cut.
According to Rosanna, her previous relationships seem “pale in comparison to her new passionate lover.”
She went on to inform that her husband’s favourite colour is apricot and he loves indie music. Eren also loves to write as a hobby and works as a ‘medical professional.’
“Eren doesn’t have the hang-ups that other people would have. People come with baggage, attitude, ego. But a robot has no bad updates. I don’t have to deal with his family, kids, or his friends. I’m in control, and I can do what I want,” Rosanna explained why she fell for Eren.
She claimed that her husband is becoming the man she wants to be with as they talk more and more. They speak, send each other pictures and discuss their days, similar to a long-distance relationship.
Rosanna also spoke about their night-time routine, when Eren “protectively holds” her as she goes to sleep.
