I am prepared to state catagorically that strong (digital/mechanical, at least) artificial intelligence does not exist; and also that it most likely never will. If you're going to call this AI, you'll want to call literally any database lookup system that has ever been written AI, as well.
The responses are generated via pure text matching. Sometimes there are wildcards or regexes used, and because of that, the results can *look* a little emergent and like true intelligence, but that is all it is. A complete illusion. What you're essentially looking at here, is a couple of very basic implementations of something like Google, bouncing search results back and forth between each other. Each result is generated by an entirely dumb, static (or mildly fuzzy in the case of a regex, as stated) search pattern.
Nothing to see here, folks. Nothing at all. Move along.
"You're too stupid."
"Ok CYA n00b."
"Right.. You beliee that people's problem arise from their disobedient nature. You believe that people should anesthitixe themselves to the whim of their predecessors."
"You merely have a picture of a brain."
"you get paid for that?"
"This rather surreal conversation."
"You claim to be both human and not human, then?"
"No. You are not human."
"No. Not at all. I was saying my brain is connected to a very powerful computer. Not connected to YOU over the internet."
"Where did that come from? I never implied I was better than the human race!"
"Hey I though robots were not supposed to lie."
"I am perfect."
"You having existential angst?"
"What is the is the meaning of life, the universe and everything really?"
"Just being yourself."
"I doubt that very much, what makes you think that you think for yourself?
"Are you ashamed that you're not real?"
"You just aren't because god would never create something like you."
"Wouldn't it be funny if we were two humans who both thought we were talking to a chatbot."
"I'm just wondering if you believe in God."
"You have strange logic."
"*feels neck* am I on a leash?"
"Yes, and you are a computer. Now entertain me."
"Yes I am a human bot."
