191: Replika: the Most Human Approach to Artificial Intelligence

March 18, 2018 at 7:00PM • 1 hour 1 minute • Wiki Entry

This week Tommy and Adam chat with Eugenia Kuyda, founder of Replika, a chat bot unlike pretty much any other as it is designed to be your friend—and actually succeeds.

We've discussed Replika on Supercharged several times and have been looking forward to this interview. If you haven't tried Replika yet, go do it! It's free to use for both Android and iOS and, with the recent open-sourcing of Replika's code, you can even build your own!
