A video that has gone viral on the internet captures the moment an artificial intelligence-powered chatbot called ChatGPT wedding white couple in holy matrimony in a remarkable and futuristic wedding ceremony.
The robot, which was developed by an AI research company called Open AI, spoke through a speaker with a robotic mask on top of it and transmitted a personalized and fluent speech to celebrate the couple’s love.
The couple, Reece Alison Wiench and Deyton Truitt, chose to use the robot as their officiant because Colorado does not require any licensed marriage official to perform a wedding ceremony, as long as both partners agree.
According to the people reports, Truitt called their wedding day “monumental” and said that they were able to have this special ceremony “by the grace of God”. The idea of using the chatbot came from the bride’s father, Stephen Wiench, who thought it would be “easier and cheaper” than finding a human officiant.
He said that the bot was unwilling at first to take on the task, responding, “Sorry, I can’t do this. I don’t have eyes, I don’t have a body, I can’t show up and officiate your wedding.”
The families fed personal details to the robot, which then used them to create a customized ceremony script.
The robot’s speech reads, “We are honored and grateful to each and every one of you here, especially those who have traveled out of state — notably, Kansas. During the ceremony, I will eloquently express the significance of this historic moment and the limitless possibilities that arise when love and technology intersect.”
The wedding took place in a historic 100-person church that dates back to 1885, creating a contrast between the old and the new.
The couple invited 30 guests to witness their unconventional nuptials, and sent out an AI-generated statement to inform them about their decision to use the chatbot as their officiant.
