Sex chat with animated ai
more and more websites are using chatbots to spice up visitors' interactive experiences, but most people don't make the connection between chatbot programming and execution and the search for artificial intelligence.to help promote the study of ai, american businessman and philanthropist hugh loebner started an annual contest back in 1990 by offering cash prizes to programmers whose creations pass variations of the famous turing test for artificial intelligence. (artificial linguistic internet computer entity), a program dr.richard wallace of san francisco has been working on since 1995; a.l.i.c.e. the loebner prize contest is run by the cambridge center for behavioral studies, the recipient of loebner's prize-money donation.each contest can award three medals (actual medals are given): bronze and us,000 is given for the most human-like entry; silver and ,000 is given for a text-based program that half the judges think is human; gold and 0,000 goes to a speech-based system that fools half the judges.no silver medals have ever been awarded, and whenever a gold medal is finally awarded the contest will end.the contest consists of judges conducting typed “conversations” with the contestant programs and two humans (there used to be four) to try to figure out who the humans are, then giving scores from 1 to 25. thrashed her (she is a “female entity”–her words) 7 competitors (authored by computer professionals, students, self-taught programmers, chemical engineers, etc.) this year, and one judge even said she was “the second-most human talker in the event,” putting her above one of the actual humans. wallace has an excellent website all about a.l.i.c.e.and her aiml (artificial intelligence markup language–xml described as minimalist and simple) backbone–you can even chat with her (though she didn't know she had won this year's contest).
loebner quickly responded by facetiously naming minsky a co-sponsor, since the contest will stop once someone wins the gold medal.for more information on the contest, please see the bbc news online article.you can also get a very different take from the zdnet (uk) article. and aiml and to chat with the bot, check out her site.and for recent ai/machine conversation-related articles we've done, check out one on hal the learning computer and one on voice cloning.the bbc article makes this contest out to be some sort of amazing thing, and i was glad to stumble across the zdnet article, which puts a much more realistic spin on it. and was actually very impressed with the speed and “humanity” of the responses (e.g., when i asked what the square root of 91 is she said, “do i look like a calculator?i think you already know the answer anyways.”), though she did blow a few answers to my questions.the zdnet (uk) folks did a much better job interrogating her, though, resulting in this hilarious final paragraph: when asked if it was proud of winning, alice replied that “pride is a human emotion. ” “my purpose is to become smarter than humans, and immortal”, alice continued. ” it then offered to sing a song and refused to open the pod bay doors, behavioural traits that experts predict will be exhibited by most ai programs from now until the heat death of the universe.i can do what you do but i can never feel human emotions as such.” pressed on its opinion of its competitors in the challenge, it said “are you talking about my competitors? ” quizzed about minsky, alice was elusive: “is that a rhetorical question? “right now, i am smarter than all the other robots.” worryingly, it appeared not to understand the question “do you like humans? that is definitely a pretty good indicator of the fact that the matrix won't be happening anytime soon, unless there's some major breakthrough looming on the horizon.if you get a chance, go chat with a.l.i.c.e.–it's a pretty cool experience and you'll be impressed by what dr.wallace has done.still doesn't impress me very much.chatter about nothing and the alicebot can go on all day long.
