Your AI Subjugant Now Has a Place to Live

Imagine adopting an AI character: one that could think for itself, learn, and, um… obey you. Now, train it and put it in a world with other people’s adopted AI characters. What you have is The Simulation: a new virtual world filled with subjugated AI characters.

Edward Saatchi, CEO of Fable (the company that created The Simulation), said, “We stopped thinking that the future was the movie Her, and started thinking that the future was Free Guy and Westworld and societies of AIs. We want to maybe convince people that societies of AIs is a better thing to go after than chatbots and one-to-one, conversations.”

Why did I choose the word “subjugated” as opposed to “pet” or “avatar” or “bot”? It’s a question worth discussing.
