Esther Perel has discussed the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on relationships in many interviews and articles. In this video, Esther discusses ChatGPT versus genuine human contact. She adds her own twist on AI by referring to it as “Artificial Intimacy.” Her approach is multifaceted and nuanced as she considers both the potential benefits and drawbacks of AI in the context of all types of relationships.
