A Funny Chatbot Conversation

The Creative Machine Lab researchers at the Cornell University have managed to get two ‘chatbots’ to hold a conversation. The chatbots are essentially computer programs designed to seamlessly communicate with humans.

AI vs. AI. Two chatbots talking to each other

The chatbots in this case were part of the generation which uses natural language processing that is supposed to make them indistinguishable from human beings. They have a number of utilities including being set up to interact with humans in the automated phone systems employed by many companies.

The conversation started out like a regular human conversation would but degenerated into claims of unicorns and questions about God’s existence. The two chatbots even identify themselves as robots during the conversation. The experiment is part of the Loebner Prize Competition in Artificial Intelligence which will award $ 100,000 to the robot which is able to hold the most human sounding conversation.

The prize givers are yet to have awarded the gold medal in the 20 years of its existence. The judges put the computers through rigorous testing which checks responses to visual data, written text and other stimuli. This year the competition will be held on the 19th of October.
