After Breakups, the Brokenhearted Are Creating AI Clones of Their Exes
Briefly

AI platforms like ChatGPT are now offering solutions to heartbreak by creating AI simulacrums of ex-partners. An AI-powered app called Talk to Your Ex allows users to import their ex's chats and continue texting/dating them. Users on social media have been creating emulations of their exes using public tools. However, some users recognize the need to move on and question the ethics of using AI to replace real human connections.
"I don't know how long I can play with this AI ex bot," the Reddit user conceded to commenters urging them to move on. "I know I am lying to myself, but do you think I should text my ex? I really miss her."
The trend of using AI to recreate or replace real human relationships should not come as a surprise. AI has been used to claim to resurrect the dead and create imaginary romantic partners. However, using AI to simulate a breakup may raise ethical concerns and hinder the healing process.
The phenomenon probably shouldn't be surprising. We've already seen AI claim to resurrect the dead, create nonexistent romantic partners, and - best of both worlds - resurrect dead romantic partners. What's a breakup compared to that?"
