He was single at the time, and it seemed like everyone was getting into online dating. Sorry to be so harsh but it kind of like when the local band you've been following for years goes national and completely changes their sound to some kind of pop-country crap, I feel like a once awesome thing is getting spoiled." Wow... I find that when I play video games in which you can choose between dialogue options which are considered "good" and "bad" in games such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Fallout 3, and Mass Effect, I have a difficult time choosing the "bad" options even though it's just a game and the storyline marches on regardless of the options chosen. The really depressing observation I had while listening, was a recent customer service experience - where the representative had no real understanding about what my issue was, or what they could do to help. Great episode but I think that a pretty obvious question went unanswered - why did a chatbot have a profile on a dating site? After hearing the background on Caleb Chung, I am fairly certain that I met him while part of a mime workshop with Richmond Sheppard in LA in the 1970's. User: You see I don't know that I believe in deal, there are too many deals happening in the world right now. i told my ex that if that thing said let me out- it was going to stay back at the next rest area! Eventually perhaps inorganic beings will be able to do these things, and their life will exist as something quite distinct from that of human beings or other evolved species on Earth, but a Furby being able to respond to stimuli surely doesn't qualify."Actually, what you're missing in both cases is a power source.So he started searching through photos and sending messages, reaching out to women who caught his interest. In 1999, Freedom Baird was in grad school, and Furbies--those furry little robot toys that talk to you and tell you to play with them--were all the rage. On the other hand, I can play a game in the Grand Theft Auto series and mindless kill innocent NPCs without and guilt or remorse. Their scripted tactic was as absurd as the robot interview in the program. I have a friend who had the same experience (figured out he was corresponding with a chatbot) and I can imagine it's a pretty frustrating discovery that would make a person very distrustful of these sites. They are robotic seals used in homes for the elderly to keep the inhabitants company... I was hoping to find a photo here to confirm my suspicion, but the fact that he was a street mime in the area certainly narrows the possibility that our paths intersected. so as I was listening to the episode, I decided to chat with Cleverbot..all went acording to plan until...around the mark..Jad asked about being sad... The Furby may be assembled, but it won't do anything until you add batteries - just as humans need electricity to function." But you can't assemble a baby from parts and plug it into a power source and bring it to life, I think that's the point.We begin with a love story--from a man who unwittingly fell in love with a chatbot on an online dating site. and Emergence episodes you could make a case for empathy and imagination emerging from mechanical production. Its interesting, as I listen to the section about the Furbies, my mind is mixing public radio shows. And props to him especially for the improvements he has made to his AI project "Java Application for Discursion Analysis and Biologically-Unassisted Mechanical Response Delivery". There is a business reason for these chatbots on dating sites: Men far outnumber the women, and in order to keep these men active (and paying), the sites use the chatbots to ensure that every man achieves some level of success. And artificial intelligence is not just about modeling sentience.Then, we encounter a robot therapist whose inventor became so unnerved by its success that he pulled the plug. If you believe that humans have grown to our current state (that is, without being built from the top-down) then it seems it will be a long (or indefinite) time before robots acquire those human traits that require more than intelligence. My understanding is that the test between the Barbie, Furbie and Gerbie is one of emotional empathy. Hearing it on the show, it is almost (but not quite) convincing enough to fool 30% of the people all of the time (apologies to Mr. I know of two other examples of sites that use bots: online poker sites and Motley Fool.
