Clones used to be purely fictional. A plot device in a sci-fi movie that we probably fell asleep watching. A futuristic concept that never interrupted our reality.
The key part of that statement is used to be, because clones are here. Right now.
Let us introduce you to Caryn Marjorie. She's a 23-year-old social media influencer with nearly two million Snapchat followers – and she is the first person in history to successfully clone herself using Artificial intelligence (AI).
Developed by Forever Voices, using OpenAI's GPT-4 API technology, the chatbot replicates Marjorie's voice, mannerisms, and personality, offering fans an immersive AI experience that feels like interacting with Marjorie herself.
Priced at $1 per minute, the chatbot has gained significant popularity, generating over $100,000 in its first week and accumulating a waiting list of thousands.
Marjorie has essentially hit copy-paste on her own identity. CarynAI has brown hair like Marjorie, sounds exactly the same and allegedly has an identical personality.
The influencer said 'birthing CarynAI' was a necessity because unfortunately, the influencer simply couldn't keep up with the growing demand of men online and their high expectations of her.
Marjorie believes she has created a revolutionary option for lonely men out there, and a copy and paste is all it took. Now all she needs to do is sit back and watch the money pile up.
After all, CarynAI can't complain, doesn't sleep and certainly won't ask for a cut of that pricey cheque at the end of the month. Exactly what Caryn Marjorie had in mind when she thought of hiring some help.
