Raising “Virtual Babies” in Metavers should be an option for couples who want to have children but don’t want or can’t raise them in the real world. Artificial intelligence expert Catriona Campbell defends this in her new book, AI by Design: A Plan for Living with Artificial Intelligence. In the work, the author compares these future children to Tamagochi, a Japanese virtual pet who needed constant care to survive and had a fever in the 90s.

For Campbell, these “digital children” will be a reality in about 50 years and will replace the problem of overpopulation on the planet, which is one reason couples choose not to have children, according to a study published by Market Research. YouGov company in 2020. “In 50 years, technology will be so advanced that the babies that exist in Metavers will be different from the real world,” the expert told a London newspaper. Telegraph Last Monday (30).

There will also be digital children, Campbell argues, is a more viable option for people who want to have children but can’t afford to raise them. This is because, according to YouGov’s data, 10% of the population does not have children because the cost of raising them is high. “Because of the potential for consumer demand, AI Baby will be widely available for a small monthly fee,” Campbell says in his book.
However, while the cost of caring for a virtual child is much lower than the actual cost of creating it, the parenting experience will require the same basic care, such as affection, bathing, and food.
What do “virtual kids” look like?
The realistic faces and bodies of the “children of Tamago” will be advanced Machine learning And computer graphics (CGI). They will be able to recognize and respond to parents through facial expressions and voices. Babies will also have emotional responses such as crying and laughing and caregivers will be able to choose how they interact with their children.
In fact, since Metavers aims to provide an immersive online experience involving touch and movement, Campbell suggests that babies with artificial intelligence will be able to reproduce physical sensations and provide tactile “reactions” with a kind of technical glove. In this way, parents, for example, will be able to hug and care for their digital children, which will meet the emotional demands of the parent relationship.
Unlike in real life, however, adults will be able to control the growth rate of children. That way, they will be able to choose how fast to raise their babies – or let them stay forever.
