Overpopulation Scam: New 'Virtual' Children 'Will Become An Accepted and Fully Embraced Part of Society'

“Virtual offspring could become fully accepted in society, would be cheap to raise and don’t even have to grow up.”

They will cuddle you, play with you and, of course, resemble you. They will require minimal resources and cost next to nothing to bring up. But, if these sound like ideal children to you, be warned: what has just been described is a virtual child.

An artificial intelligence expert has predicted that these metaverse-hosted digital babies will be commonplace in 50 years. Catriona Campbell, one of the UK’s leading authorities in AI and emerging and disruptive technologies, made the eyebrow-raising prediction in a book published this week.

In AI by Design: A Plan For Living With Artificial Intelligence, Ms. Campbell argues that concerns about overpopulation will prompt society to embrace digital children. It is a demographic transformation that she has nicknamed the “Tamagotchi generation.”

“Virtual children may seem like a giant leap from where we are now,” she writes, “but within 50 years, technology will have advanced to such an extent that babies which exist in the metaverse are indistinct from those in the real world. “As the metaverse evolves, I can see virtual children becoming an accepted and fully embraced part of society in much of the developed world.”

High-tech gloves

The metaverse is an immersive digital world. It is seen as the future of the internet and will be more physically interactive. Ms. Campbell suggests that high-tech gloves able to deliver tactile feedback might reproduce the physical sensations of cuddling, feeding, and playing with one’s offspring.

Ms. Campbell cited widespread concern about the environmental toll exacted by the world’s increasing population, which is nearing eight billion. A 2020 YouGov study into why couples choose not to have children found that nearly 10 percent remain childless because of overpopulation concerns, while a further 10 percent choose not to start a family because of the cost of raising a child.

Many researchers now believe that declining fertility rates will cause the world’s population to fall in the second half of the century. Some argue that technological advances will ensure that the next generation’s environmental footprint is smaller than our own.

Nevertheless, Ms. Campbell argues that consumers will be attracted to environmentally friendly digital children. Referring to the virtual pets that were created in Japan and became a craze among Western children in the late 1990s and early 2000s, she said: “We’re already well on our way to creating the Tamagotchi generation which, for all intents and purposes, will be ‘real’ to their parents.

“On the basis that consumer demand is there, which I think it will be, AI children will become widely available for a relatively small monthly fee.”

“Make no mistake that this development, should it indeed take place, is a technological game-changer which, if managed correctly, could help us solve some of today’s most pressing issues, including overpopulation.”

Ms. Campbell said that, through CGI and advanced machine learning, digital children would have photo-realistic faces and bodies, and they would be able to recognize and respond to their parents using facial tracking and voice analysis.

They will be capable of speech and simulated emotional responses encompassing a baby’s coo, a child’s giggle, and a teenager’s backchat. Their parents will be able to interact with them in digital environments of their choosing, such as a sitting room, park, or swimming pool. They will also be able to choose how quickly their digital children grow up, if at all.

A proof of concept for virtual children already exists in the form of “BabyX,” an experiment by New Zealand-based company Soul Machines. The project aims to humanize AI so that it is more appealing for the public to interact with.

  • 50 years from now? Maybe in bunkers under a necular destroyed world
    that the 1% will inherit. No one reading this now has another 50 years.
    50 days will be an achievement.

  • Great news!
    Soon we can all have our vitual little Schwab baby, Gates baby, Fauci baby, Gebreyesus baby, Merkel baby, von der Leyen baby, Trudeau baby, Macron baby, Marin baby, Zelensky baby, Ardern baby, Draghi baby, etc, to bring up and virtually torture these our virtual cute little babies as much as we want and as often we want.
    And yes, they will not be allowed to grow up, and never deleted, they will be virtually tortured forever. This will be fun.
    I’m already waiting for my virtual babies.
    When can I have those cute virtual babies?

  • In the 1950s I believe the late Philip K Dick wrote for a science fiction magazine a story titled “In the Days of Perky Pat” set in a then relatively near future post-apocalyptic America wherein traumatized people strove to re-create idealizations of mid twentieth century American bourgeois life by every one communally pooling his curated parts of an elaborate toy world consisting of realistic Barbie size dolls of men & women, clothes, houses, furnished rooms, cars & other props such as kitchen aprons, smoking pipes, pets et cetera. The despairing characters compulsively perfected the most perfect scenarios of pre-disaster life to the neglect of their own imperious real needs, wilfully refusing to notice the deleterious net effect this delusional behavior had on their numbers. As most of the rest of the earth was in even worse shape there was no risk of conquest but the moral effect compared to what this article fortells is disturbingly similar.

  • More disconnection from reality, i.e., insanity. What is causing the huge rise in mental illness among the left?
