Prompt: “Virtual girlfriend avatar" | Art by Rui Alves with Gen-AI

As I sat in my bedroom, scrolling through Instagram, I couldn’t help but feel like something was missing.

Sure, I have hundreds of thousands of fans who adore my every move, but I can’t connect with them all on a personal level.

I longed to have deep, meaningful conversations with every one of them, to truly be their friend and confidant.

That’s when it hit me.

Why not create a virtual copy of myself, an avatar who could fill that gap and be there for my followers whenever they needed me? And so, I began the long process of designing and coding my very own AI chatbot.

The words are mine, but from what I’ve read so far on the creator’s Twitter, these thoughts could well have been on the “first influencer transformed into AI” mind during her eureka moment.

In recent years, the rise of artificial intelligence has paved the way for new and innovative ways for people to connect and communicate with one another.

Recently, I’ve witnessed the emergence of “AI girlfriends,” digital companions that offer conversation, companionship, and even intimacy to users.

These days, anyone with the right know-how or adequate resources can create a digital companion. However, on the high-end side of this trend stands a 23-year-old who has created a virtual copy of herself to serve as a “virtual girlfriend” for her fans.

She has not only generated significant revenue but also sparked a new conversation about the role of technology in our personal lives.

Her virtual girlfriend allegedly required an immense amount of time and effort to bring to life.

Reading her tweets, I can guess the influencer’s thoughts about the creative process behind her avatar:

It wasn’t easy — over 2,000 hours of work went into creating her voice, behaviors, and personality, but it was worth it. And before I knew it, the AI had taken on a life of her own, with over 1,000 paying subscribers eagerly awaiting her every word.
