I never get tired of ATS, for just this reason! I grew up on books about Charles Fort, Lovecraft and "That's Incredible!" with Fran Tarkenton on TV, so I tend to take serious criticism of the weird with a grain of salt. I like weird and silly things. I find there is often more truth in silly things than there is in affecting a false gravitas. Robert Anton Wilson pioneered the everything-and-the-kitchen-sink approach to modern con-theory, and it stuck. Silliness is at the core of all great con-theory; the Fool in in the Tarot is both the first and last of the major arcana, and the journey doesn't even happen without him.
In that spirit, I welcome our new partners in crime, and I hope they get all the clicks!
My question concerns AI.
Artificial Intelligence just had a banner week. On one hand, an AI just co-wrote a short story that came within a few rounds of winning a literary prize. Fnord. On the other, Microsoft's sassy teen chatbot with zero chill just went full Hitler on Twitter. Here.
My question is: what is the best known example of interactive AI in the world today and how can I speak with it or see it in action?
I'm looking forward to your response! Thanks for a great show!
ResoluteArs Praetorian jump to post-
So Microsoft created a chat bot that so perfectly emulates a teenager that it went off spouting offensive things just for the sake of getting attention? I would say the engineers in Redmond succeeded beyond their wildest expectations, myself.
