Computers set to be more human, stupid

Chatbot bids to fool humans.

A computer program designed to talk like a human is preparing for its biggest test in its bid to be truly “intelligent”..

Looking at the example transcript it reminds me of the sort of idiotic conversations that I used to have on IRC.

Then I saw this: While most others are programmed by rigid sets of rules defining how it communicates, Jabberwacky is more complex and learns from thousands of online conversations with humans.

So they probably let it hang around on IRC, which kind of explains why it comes across as complete moron. 🙂
