Interview with the Chatbot2Chatbot-Creators

Kevin Kelly hat ein (sehr) kurzes Interview mit den Studenten, die neulich zwei Chatbots miteinander reden ließen und die sofort anfingen, über Gott und Einhörner zu reden und sich gegenseitig als Lügner zu bezeichnen.

There are a lot of other chatbots, but we heard good things about Cleverbot because its database is based on snippets that humans actually write and say. So we feed the output of one Cleverbot to the input of another. Then we feed the text log into Acapella, a free text-to-speach synthesizer. Then we animated the soundtrack using Living Actor Presenter. We don't think we are the first to have two bots chat, but it seems we are the first to animate it. In retrospect that seems such an obvious thing to do."

I asked them how long they had to run the conversation before they got the amazing dialog they animated.

"Actually, this conversation is the very first thing the duo created. In fact, we ran it longer but it never was quiet as good, not so varied, or strange. We got it going the very first time at 3am one morning, and we weren't really prepared to start recording it, but luckily it automatically saved to a log, so we could retrieve this initial dialog. Our next step is to let run for a day or so and see what happens, see if certain topics recur. We have no idea what they will say."

What about all the talk about God? And why are the bots so quick to call the other a liar?

"We think this is because the database of replies in Cleverbot is compiled from the questions and responses of human users, and apparently, humans will often accuse the bots of lying, or will query the bots about their origins, so when they start talking to each other, they mimic what humans say to them."

Our bots ask theological questions because we do. So far, our bots are made in the image of their creators.
