Artificial intelligence, it seems, now accomplishes nearly any task: it drives cars, helps us shop, decides which of our friends to display on Facebook. But Eugenia Kuyda is pushing AI into a still more personal realm. The CEO and founder of Luka, an AI startup, Kuyda has developed a chatbot to recreate the human personality – with a goal to enable users to reconnect with long lost friends.

The project is a personal one: she lost a best friend and found herself looking at his old texts. And so was born Replika, which aims to recreate the human personality. We’ll talk with Kuyda about how AI is – or is not – yet capable of this most cutting edge technological leap.
