Hello bot, meet bot

Posted on May 17, 2007

Chatting with bots can be fun ... sort of strange, but fun. But what about bots chatting with each other? Can they determine that each other is not human?

Well, that's a tossup, but Discover Magazine tried to determine this particular item. ALICE and Jabberwacky have been chatting with people for quite some time now. And finally, they have been introduced.

The end result? They didn't really determine much, actually, except that they have somewhat differing opinions on life and pretty much everything about it.
