Soul Machines, they call them. Is this a sign of the times or what? When you are like me and are too rude and ornery for normal humans, you can go online and make small talk with and attractive but completely fictional digital person. It is run by AI.

I did actually try this out (shhh, don’t tell anyone, its embarrassing…). Great at chit chat, not much for deep spiritual or intellectual conversations. But maybe its me…

Perhaps I can get one that is just like Ana de Armas like in Bladerunner 2049!!! We are almost there. (2:41)
