Artificial Intelligence (AI) is posing a threat to young men as they increasingly engage in AI relationships, according to Professor Liberty Vittert. Through AI apps, these men are able to form ideal relationships because the AI technology learns and adapts to their likes and dislikes. Consequently, when faced with the challenges of real-life relationships, they struggle to cope with the ups and downs.
These AI girlfriends provide young men with perfectly tailored companionship, as the AI technology learns their preferences and caters to their every need. However, this idealized virtual relationship hampers their ability to navigate the complexities of real-life relationships. In the absence of dealing with the unpredictable challenges of human connections, these men lack the necessary skills to handle the highs and lows that naturally occur in real relationships.
With AI constantly seeking to learn and improve, these AI relationships become even more enticing for young men. As the AI technologies gain more insight into their preferences, the virtual relationships thrive, leaving these men ill-equipped to deal with the inevitable challenges and compromises that come with real relationships. This dangerous trend raises concerns about the emotional and social consequences faced by this generation of young men, who may struggle to navigate real-life relationships due to their reliance on AI companionship.
