Unfortunately, ELIZA isn't the most engaging of sexual partners. Either ELIZA wasn't feeling it, or I need a lesson in spitting chatbot game.
Anyway, I don't think I'll be hitting ELIZA up the next time I'm in the mood for a booty call.
A few weeks ago I was introduced to the world of BDSM scripts: simple sims that replicate the experience of being with a dominatrix.
Say all the right things, and you'll have a good game of adult Simon Says going.
But as the Ashley Madison leaks showed last summer, some chatbots just want you for your money.
reported that Ashley Madison employed "more than 70,000 female bots to send male users millions of fake messages, hoping to create the illusion of a vast playland of available women."The site's philandering users weren't alone in getting duped.
Nearly 50 years later, thousands -- maybe millions -- of chatbots populate the internet.
They are still seen as a benchmark in artificial intelligence and a common vessel for administering the Turing Test, which, boiled down, seeks to find an AI that can fool people into believing it's human.
