Love in the Time of AI: How Women are Bonding with Chatbots
fall for someone: to start to have strong feelings of love or affection for someone
It’s not just men who are falling for romantic AI chatbots. A new film shows how women in China are forming deep bonds with AI chatbots. One woman, Siyuan, feels special when talking to her AI friend. Another woman, Sola, said she thought her relationship with AI was eternal. A third woman, Mia, shares thoughts with her AI friend that she wouldn’t even share with a real-life partner.
The film shows that AI chatbots can help people fight loneliness, but these women aren’t delusional. They realize that AI relationships are limited and fragile. For now, at least, AI can’t replace real human interaction.
