AI startup Forever Voices AI has developed a “virtual girlfriend” called CarynAI, an AI clone of social media influencer Caryn Marjorie.
Marjorie has nearly two million followers on Snapchat where she posts videos and photos of herself throughout the day. The 23-year-old’s fans are 98% male and bombard her with requests and messages. Marjorie created a Telegram group where her superfans pay to join and she spends five hours a day interacting with them.
To reach more fans, she worked with Forever Voices to create an AI clone of herself that can talk via 2-way audio with each fan.
Users can chat with her for $1 a minute. In the first week of launch, the influencer made $72,000 per week, according to a tweet by Justine Moore, a partner at venture capital firm A16z.
Marjorie estimates she can earn $5 million each month based on her current subscription growth trajectory. She also has a waiting list of thousands of other fans.
