Pure Awesomeness: Two Chat Bots Talking To Each Other
from the au-revoir dept
Okay, a few folks have been sending this in (and I see it’s been getting some attention on the Twittertubes as well). Some folks at my lovely alma mater, Cornell, decided to see what would happen if they set two chatbots up to talk to each other, and the resulting video should not be missed:
Female Cleverbot: How are you?
Male Cleverbot: Great, you?
FC: I am okay.
MC: That’s good.
FC: Are you good?
MC: Yes, I am good. I just said I was.
FC: No you didn’t. I said I was.
MC: So you are a robot.
FC: No, my name is Cleverbot.
MC: Yes, you are a robot and your name is Cleverbot.
FC: I am a robot.
From there it only gets better. I was going to make a comment on a corollary to the Turing test, and how perhaps we still have a ways to go, but honestly, parts of the conversation sound like the bickering of some married couples I know… so perhaps they’re on to something.
