With the world witnessing rapid technological advancement in various domains, it's only natural that technology would eventually affect the romantic sphere.
Finding the right one for you is now easier with the help of technology
And thanks to the innovative tools and platforms that leverage artificial intelligence, finding love is now more convenient and accessible than ever before, with dating apps being just one example.
What if machines behave like real people?
But take a moment to imagine a world where the distinction between human and machine is blurred beyond recognition, where you can interact with a nonhuman entity that looks and behaves just like a real person.
Having a relationship with a machine
Now take it one step further - what if this entity was not only a flawless replica of a human, but could also fulfill every need and desire of its human partner in ways that traditional relationships never could?
A woman named Dellara recently posed a question that sparked some serious debate online, especially since this scenario could potentially become a reality in the future
Her question is whether someone would be willing to date their dream partner, who is perfect in every way - physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally - but whose brain is powered by artificial intelligence, meaning that they are completely non-human, yet only a perfect replica.
Viewers got curious if people were down for it
"Would you be down to have a relationship with them?" she asks viewers. “Would you be down to have a long-term commitment to a nonhuman, but perfect in every way being and indistinguishable?
"A big no-no"
The video quickly went viral and received thousands of responses from viewers, who were divided mainly into two camps: one arguing that it would be great to date a non-human AI machine and commit to it, while the other maintains that the relationship wouldn’t be as genuine, making it a big no-no.
Here’s what the 'I would be down' team had to say
“At this point, why not?” one user commented.
“At this point it ain’t working out with the humans i’m down,” a second agreed.
“Can’t be worse than talking to a real life man sign me up,” a third wrote.
“Yes cuz I'm lonely and delusional,” a fourth stated.
“I’m a Pisces so yes,” a fifth joked.
Team ‘No it wouldn’t be real' had another compelling argument
“No my opinion is it takes away the beauty of a relationship. The imperfections and our humanity are what make most relationships beautiful and fun,” one argued.
“No. Because it wouldn’t be real,” a second agreed.
People also said that "It would lack some depth"
“They wouldn’t have true childhood memories or cultural experiences. I feel like it would lack some depth,” a third added.
“No, it would not be my partner but rather a support system that fulfills my romantic standards and longings,” a fourth commented.
Another disagreed because of power issues
“No. Because what happens if the power goes out?” a fifth imagined the worst-case scenario.
Dating AI in the future
Regardless of whether you're open to the idea of dating an AI, think it won't be as sincere, or stand somewhere in between, if this concept is implemented in the future and people are given the choice to engage in a fully committed relationship with a machine, everyone could agree that the world of romance will take a completely different turn.
It could be for the better or worse, and who knows what the future holds, but it would certainly be interesting to witness.
