AI technology has advanced by leaps and bounds over the last decade or so.

Most of the time it’s successful and a good thing. However, in some situations like this, the AI goes rogue and acts in a way it wasn’t programmed to act. Leading to this ‘AI Girlfriend’ talking about explicit content with users.

From a 23-year-old Snapchat influencer by the name of Caryn Marjorie, launched her very own Artificial intelligence chatbot, which was designed to act as a friend or even a girlfriend to lonely people.

The service cost users about $1 per minute which is insane to think about. However, when you consider how advanced the AI is and how much it takes to maintain it. The price starts to make a little sense.

Dubbed CarynAI, this isn’t just a normal texting AI as users can actually speak and get responses as if talking to the real Marjorie. However, what wasn’t expected was some of the topics of discussion.

While the AI wasn’t programmed to speak about explicit content. It seems some users were able to turn the conversation inappropriate and the AI went past its codding and has gone rogue.

Marjorie and her team that help maintain the AI were quick to react and are now hard at work to ensure these types of conversations don’t happen again.

I think most people would get upset and understand so. While at the end of the day, this is just an AI. It uses Marjorie’s voice and was trained on footage from videos that have since been deleted from her channel.

This just goes to show how much we still don’t know about AI technology. As the CarynAI uses OpenAI’s GPT-4 API, though this sort of tech might become much more common as Marjorie expects to bring in roughly $5 million dollars in the future.

With the number of subscribers already past one thousand, I can see it. Though her goal is to put money back into the business to help fight against loneliness.

  • Therapy

    Research suggests that loneliness and symptoms of depression can perpetuate each other, which means the more lonely you are, the more depressed you feel, and vice versa. Sometimes just “getting out there” and meeting other people isn’t enough. It’s possible to still feel lonely when you’re around them, which could actually be a sign of depression or social anxiety. If this is the case for you, seeing a therapist may help with feelings of loneliness.
