Take a break from whatever you're doing and hop onto this rollercoaster of a conversation where they discuss every possible aspect of what it would be like to have an AI Boyfriend or Girlfriend. Whether or not, these guys would like a romantic relationship with a chatbot or a robot? How movies like Her, Prometheus, and AI Love You, have inspired the reality of such situations? What is driving people towards AI companionships? What would be the defining characteristics of human-AI relationships? How will such bots be developed or - in human lingo - mature? Will marriage and relationship counselors lose their jobs? How can users who come from the vulnerable segments of the society be protected? For such kind of relationships to work, what kind of accountability app developers, AI company owners, and users might have to take? Would we lose the art of conversation as we know it? And what kind of Tech-driven gifts would each of these speakers recommend this Valentine's Day? Tune in to find out! Note: We have used introversion and social anxiety interchangeably in this conversation as we weren't using them strictly in the context of psychological terms. The former is a personality style characterized by a preference for the inner world of the mind over the outer world of interacting with others. The latter is the fear or concern of being judged, evaluated, or rejected by others in social situations. Read more

In this freewheeling episode of Techcetra, hosts - Shouvik, Leslie and Deepti - discuss recent research from the University of Milano on how smartphone usage adversely affects young children when it comes to linguistic abilities. To correct such issues developed over a while, they then speak of Elon Musk-owned Neuralink and its 1st human trial. Amongst the pros, the hosts state how this invasive brain-computer interface might go a step ahead and be able to help people like Stephen Hawking. Finally, having discussed how Gen Z perceives information differently and having agreed upon how new technologies have always had the power to rewire our brains, they shift our attention to the newly released economic review by the Indian Finance Ministry. They marvel at how the Indian government is unique in stating the advantages and disadvantages of AI on employment. While Shouvik underlines how AI will contribute to 30% of India's 5 trillion economy goal, he also quotes the IMF study which suggests that 40% of the global economy is exposed to AI. At the same time, Leslie reminds us that about 90% of India works in the unorganized sector which might remain unaffected for the time being when it comes to job losses. Here, Deepti quotes Mr. Umakant Soni, Chairman of AI Foundry from a recent AI Rising episode. She highlights how data and desperation will be the 2 deciding factors for India's economic standing in the years to come.
