Many curious social media users have shown interest in the 23 year old influencer, Caryn Marjorie, who built a virtual Artificial Intelligence.
Who is Caryn Marjorie?
Caryn Marjorie, a social media sensation, has built a digital version of herself dubbed CarynAI, a chatbot that purports to be a “virtual girlfriend.” The influencer debuted the chatbot for beta testing on Tuesday, May 2, 2023, and charged consumers $1 per minute for the service.
CarynAI, which launched as a private, invite-only beta test on the Telegram app earlier in May, is the latest example of the stunning advances in A.I. technology that have wowed and worried the world over the past few months. On Tuesday, CarynAI will launch out of beta, and Marjorie will begin promoting across her social media, where she has millions of followers.
The AI-powered doppelganger is available for all types of virtual encounters, from informal conversations and planning to NSFW discussions. According to Fortune, CarynAI produced $71,610 in income in a single week, with nearly all users being men.
Caryn, also known as @cutiecaryn, was born in Omaha, Nebraska in January 2000 and later relocated to Los Angeles, California. In 2016, the 23-year-old rocketed to prominence on the social media app Snapchat. Her popularity grew when she constantly connected with her admirers via YouNow. By 2018, she had expanded to YouTube, where she routinely shared comedy videos, daily vlogs, and personal stories.
She presently has 1.8 million Snapchat subscribers and is managed by Ishan Goel of Goel Strategies.
Caryn Marjorie’s virtual persona developed by the AI company
CarynAI offers real-time messaging discussions that may be viewed from anywhere and at any time.
According to Forever Voices, they use end-to-end encryption to ensure that the chat is private and safe. The company spent over 2000 hours creating and coding “Caryn’s language and personality into an immersive AI experience,” according to CarynAI’s website, to produce a faultless clone (a deepfake) of the influencer.
The description of the AI states:
“Using her unique voice, captivating persona, and distinct behavior, CarynAI brings you a dynamic, one-of-a-kind interaction that feels like you’re talking directly to Caryn herself.
According to Fortune, several of the 23-year-old influencer’s now-deleted YouTube videos featured “OpenAI’s GPT-4 API technology.” ChatGPT was created by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence research centre.
Caryn Marjorie told Fortune that if 20,000 of her 1.8 million Snapchat followers sign up for the service, she may earn up to $5 million each month. She stated that the chatbot would simulate having a “real-life” spouse.
“Whether you need somebody to be comforting or loving, or you just want to rant about something that happened at school or at work, CarynAI will always be there for you.”
When questioned about the idea of authenticity, Caryn Marjorie explained that the virtual doppelganger can never replace the real her. However, she added that it would be “an extension of her consciousness,” which would be accessible to everyone as it can speak in multiple languages.
