I created a Selena Gomez chatbot for my daughter and saw the future.
Josh Bocanegra

I wonder how Selena would feel about this? I guess it’s probably no stranger than fanfic or fanart or the billion fan accounts on Twitter telling her who she can and cannot date. But there’s still something that feels off to me about creating a fake version of someone that responds to you in their voice. I can just picture myself breaking up with a developer someday in the not distant future and later finding out he coped with it by making a chatbot from our text history…. 😶
