Woman made $70k using AI to chat to men as expert says it could replace lovers

An influencer “cloned herself” using AI and made just over $70,000 in a week by using her digital likeness to talk to lonely men online.

Caryn Marjorie used her AI clones to give every one of her 1.8 million Snapchat followers a “personal experience”.

Sometimes it was a very personal experience. The system apparently overstepped the mark and started sending some very explicit messages to some followers.

“The AI was not programmed to do this and has seemed to go rogue,” Marjorie later told Insider. “My team and I are working around the clock to prevent this from happening again.”

She thinks the immersive AI experience could eventually bring in as much as $5million a month.

The scheme was discussed on a recent episode of Steven Bartlett's Diary of A CEO podcast, with former Google executive Mo Gawdat.

“A doll that can do everything around the house and be there for you emotionally to emotionally support you," Steven said.

"It can be programmed to never disagree with you, or challenge you if that’s what you want, it can be programmed to challenge you to have sex with you to tell you that you are this X Y and Z to really have empathy for what you're going through every day… “

Speaking on Caryn's scheme, he added: “She made just over $70,000 in the first week because men are going on to this on Telegram.”

“They're sending her voice notes and she's responding to … or AI’s responding in her voice and they're paying and that's made seventy thousand in the first week and she tweeted a tweet saying “this is going to help loneliness”.

“Are you out of your f*****g mind?” Steven added.

Mo responded that it isn’t the cure for loneliness “yet” but that in the future “some us might prefer” an AI partner to a real human.

He added: "Look at where we are Steven. We are in the city of London: we've replaced nature with the walls and the tubes and the undergrounds and the overgrounds and the cars and the noise of London and we now think of this as natural”.

He says it’s possible to love a machine, describing the moment he witnessed a robot catch a ball for the first time as feeling like the first time he saw his young son complete a simple puzzle.

“If we, Humanity, wake up enough and say ‘Hey, instead of competing with China find a way for us and China to work together and create prosperity for everyone' – if that was the prompt we would give the machines they would find it.

“I will publicly say this I'm not afraid of the machines. The biggest threat facing Humanity today is Humanity. In the age of the machines we were abused we will abuse this to make seventy thousand dollars”.
