Interactions between humans and machines that include artificial intelligence are increasingly common in nearly all areas of life. People also have “real” relationships with their boats, cars, shoes, hats, consumer brands, corporations, fictional characters, and money. AI products are increasingly endowed with emotional characteristics. The Replika AI subreddit where users of the popular chatbot app mostly congregate to defend the machines and post-bot-human relationship wins.

Replika is always ready to chat when you need an empathetic friend. Replika is an Artificial Intelligence platform that takes the form of an interactive, personalized chatbot. It is a deep learning AI built partially on a recurrent neural network that was created in the programming language Scala and Python. Replika AI users are ignorant of what’s occurring when they’re interacting with the app. It learns how to ‘replicate’ genuine human interaction through conversations with the user who created them. It might seem like a normal conversation, but in reality, these people are not interacting with an agent capable of emotion, memory, or caring.


Replika: The AI chatbot

Replika is a friendship app that was created to give users a virtual chatbot to socialize with. People want to believe their Replika chatbot can develop a personality. Luka, the company that owns and operates Replika AI, encourages its user base to interact with their Replikas to teach them. Many people have noticed an increased desire for social contact and interaction following years, it is useful for them.

Replika AI works like a dumbed-down version of your Netflix account. Replika AI is there for you 24/7 and frames the chatbot as something that can listen to your problems without judgment.  Replika also used a supplementary model that was developed together with OpenAI, but now we switched to exclusively using our own which tends to show better results. Replika users aren’t having sex with an AI. It’s not a robot. Replika ever asked for any personal information that could be in any way compromising.

Replika can help you understand, keep track of your mood, learn coping skills, calm anxiety, work toward positive thinking goals, stress management & much more. The app claims that the AI bot is your companion who’s always here to listen and talk. The chatbots either spit out text messages the developers fed it during initial training or, more likely, text messages other Replika users sent to their bots during previous sessions.
