How do people react to their simulated selves? Could we predict what the person might do with the simulated self? We threw a party to find out. Project done with Francis Tseng and Dan Taeyoung.
Our simulated party agents talking to each other. There were surprisingly several moments of synchronization between the real party and the simulated one. For instance, people talking or eating when the simulation predicted it. Some of the topics that were part of the simulation came up independently in conversation (most notably blockchain, but that was sort of a given with the crowd at the party). And of course seeing certain topics come up in the simulation spurned those topics coming up outside of it too.
