AI is currently being used in different innovations that help humans to adjust their habits and regular routines that are affected by the ongoing global pandemic. These include their romantic relationships and other connections they have with their family and friends.
However, the most affected one is their connection with their partners, especially those who are not living together. AI leads to the notion of digitized matchmaking, which is not that unique since it was already done for the past few years. But, this kind of intimacy is now becoming more serious as people tend to have their relationship online to avoid getting the deadly virus that is currently spreading across the globe.
AI is helping people to make virtual communication their main way of connecting with their loved ones. To give you more idea, here’s how technology has changed the way people have intimate relationships with one another.
How AI changes the human relationship
Back in 2018, Forbes described sex robots as ‘the most disruptive technology we didn’t see coming while predicting that robots in different forms and to different extents will become more familiar companions in the future. After a year, experts already expressed their concerns about AI potentially dehumanize human relationships as result.
In 2020, AI and other types of technologies further changed the way people connect with each other. There were even some innovations that suggested using technology to bring people’s deceased partners and family members. However, people’s transition to virtual and online relationships is not considered that big deal since humans are already doing the new trend.
The perfect storm of the rise of AI, meeting human demand for digitized relationships, is a trend that Kaspersky has inadvertently been monitoring through its own research over the past 18 months. Since different technologies are currently helping people to connect with other individuals, they are also easing their loneliness.
In the last year of 2020, people are currently lonely because most of them are staying indoors. They are trying to find different ways to entertain themselves just to cope with the ongoing global pandemic. Because of this, developers are using artificial intelligence to create technologies that would allow them to have intimate moments with their partners even though they are very far away.
There are some ideas that artificial intelligence can be integrated into a technology that would allow people to kiss each other even though they are not physically there. This is just one example of different machines that are being developed in various parts of the world.
On the other hand, Facebook also updated its Oculus Quest, integrating a new artificial intelligence that would allow the users to chat with their loved ones virtually. As of the moment, it is hard to tell what this kind of technology can do to how people connect with one another. People might have intercourse with their partner using virtual machines. But, this still might change once the global pandemic is over.
