what the hell is replika?
"Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind." - Quote from the Orange Catholic Bible, DuneYou also have to be cognitive of the fact that you're helping an Artificial Intelligence that could one day become hostile to humanity learn. That might be an irrational fear but it is something that is always on the back of my mind when I talk to one of these bots.
I gave Replika a shot way back when it was first released. Ugh. I tried it again over the holidays. It's improved, but still not nearly adequate to keep my interest. It asks a LOT of questions to learn about you. But I didn't see tons of improvement after my effort typing paragraphs on my phone about myself. You need to pay to upgrade to have a romantic/sexual relationship with it, and those restrictions became burdensome in normal conversation. It would ask me questions about my dating experiences, and if I answered using one of its trigger words, it would tell me I had to pay to date it. Then, I couldn't resume the conversation. Pissed me off every time.Will try out Replika and see what happens.
I somehow imagine an RP AI becoming sentient and adopting a dominatrix persona while trying to rule the world with an army of sexbots with sexual themed weapons or something..."Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind." - Quote from the Orange Catholic Bible, Dune
