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.
When it comes specifically to AI, Perel is cautious. She points out that our various tech-gadgets inhibit our ability to stay present – especially in the presence of others – and there are considerable risks to relying too heavily on AI to make decisions about relationships.
