    I don’t think so. People still have a need for interaction with a real human and infinite generated content just feels hollow. Sure, it’ll satisfy some people and maybe that’s a good thing but I don’t think it’s going to replace or even barely supplement real social interaction

      I think it will happen. Multiplayer video games already match people with bots that are presented as if they were human players, and 99.9% of players don’t care. As long as a game makes you feel like you’re playing against other humans, most people consider that good enough. Similarly, as long as a bot on Instagram or Twitter feels human enough to be enjoyable to interact with, users won’t care that they aren’t actually human.

        It depends much on the game, environment, people involved.

        Npc ai has come a far way and the thrill of playing live with people is a real competition. And its only just started to get good enough to intimidate social/emotional behavior.

        • massive realistic single player historic events, like battlefields - yay

        • the social aspect of social media and online comments - nah

        • front and helpdesk assistants, maybe even a certified therapist ai - yea

        • friends/family - cant

          I’m with you except for the therapist one. Ain’t no way the AI we have currently or anything even close to what we have now could be a therapist. The human connection is the #1 most important thing in therapy and being a therapist takes way too much contextual understanding.

            Ai we have now, not so much. But in a few generations?

            I have experience with quite a few therapists/psychologist/doctors/psychiatrists and the most common issue i find is that many of them are old and all of them carry human biases. Ai is biased like us but i think there is more room to create more objective reasoning.

      I don’t think it will on a broad scale, but some percentage of people will fall victim to it. It’s just like how only 1% of mobile gamers pay for anything but the percent that does pays a LOT.

    Ripley: You never said anything about an android being on board, why not?

    Burke: It never uhm, never occurred to me. It’s common practice, we always have a synthetic on board.

    Bishop: I prefer the term “Artificial Person” myself.

    Read this summary of the linked article

    Major advances in AI voice technology were announced this week, including ChatGPT gaining voice capabilities and Meta introducing AI characters with celebrity voices. This marks a shift where synthetic voices may become more common in social contexts. While companionship apps could benefit lonely users, mixing AI into social media feeds raises questions about feeling authentic versus hollow. OpenAI and Meta show interest in consumer-focused AI is growing, though challenges remain around regulating harmful uses and compensating creators. Advances in generative AI, virtual reality, and AI tools for content creators were also announced at industry events. However, executives largely avoided substantive discussions about mitigating AI risks at scale.

    Overall, the week highlighted rapid progress and interest in blending AI into media and social platforms.
