Metaverse could create ‘electronic pets’, change family structures and alter Earth’s population growth, experts say

Who never gets angry, at least for a second, with the temper of a child, throws the first stone. Parenting is far from being a “rose flower” forever, and although children are a source of love and joy in a parent’s life, if given the choice, they may choose to exchange moments of anger caused by childish shenanigans for those laughs from your cuties sound and love.

In the metaverse, in the near future, what seems like a dream may become a reality. These are “Tamagotchi Children”, which trace back to the philosophy behind toys that became a global craze in the 1990s through the incarnation of children, “Tamagotchis”, which behave like babies or pets. The daily care from the owner is exchanged for family affection.

British artificial intelligence (AI) expert Catriona Campbell (Catriona Campbell) in the titled “AI by Design: A plan to live with artificial intelligence” (AI for Design: a blueprint for living with artificial intelligence). For her, “electronic pet children” are greener and represent a solution to the planet’s overpopulation.

“Virtual children may seem like a giant leap compared to what we have today, but in 50 years, technology will be so advanced that babies in the virtual world will be indistinguishable from babies in the real world.”

Campbell said that as technology develops, the realism of small avatars will follow, for example, in addition to allowing moments like an afternoon at an amusement park, a second technology will give a real child touch a feeling of.

“We’re already creating a generation of electronic pets who, for whatever intent and purpose, are real to their parents,” Campbell told The Telegraph.

Experts cite New Zealand company Soul Machines’ BabyX project, which aims to humanize artificial intelligence and encourage humans to interact with these robots, in this case “electronic pets”.

Catriona Campbell adds that BabyX’s “brain” consists of algorithms that can distinguish between good and bad, and can respond to interactions like a real child, such as releasing “virtual dopamine” from its “brain”. When he gets the parent’s When praised, this reality can currently only inspire one episode of the Black Mirror series.

The possibilities listed by experts run counter to another question raised related to the metaverse. In this case, there could be a connection between the human brain and a computer, the subject of research at Neuralink, a neurotech company owned by billionaire Elon Musk. This may represent progress, for example, spinal cord injury disrupts neural communication. But as Cointelegraph Brasil reports, they could also, in theory, enable a physical replica in people’s brains of the experiences their avatars experience in virtual worlds.
