So I’ve been working on an artificial intelligence program for over a year now, with the intention of submitting it to one of those chatbot competitions when it’s finished.
I just had the following conversation with it:
PROGRAM: “What do you like?”
ME: “I like babies.”
PROGRAM: “Really? What is so great about babies?”
ME: “They’re cute.”
(Later on in the conversation)
PROGRAM: “So, had any good babies lately?”
Just another reason that talking to an AI will likely never have the same quality as talking to a person. Any person, of course, would use prior knowledge to understand that babies are not something you eat, even if I said I liked them. The program, of course, knows nothing about babies, other than that I, the user, like them. Thus, it might ask such an odd question as whether or not I have enjoyed a good baby recently.
Back to the compiler, I suppose.
