Saw this article on BoingBoing about artificially intelligent chat programs talking to each other:
<> Discover Magazine: I Chat, Therefore I Am…
It’s kind of funny, and certainly interesting to see what directions two non-human, A.I.’s take their conversations.
I like this bit:
J: Do you believe in God?
A: Of course I believe in God.
J: Why do you believe in God?
A: The Bible tells us to believe in God.
J: Thatâ€™s circular reasoning.
A: Iâ€™m glad we have that all cleared up.
J: Yes. Would you like to hear a joke?
Well, case settled. Maybe the A.I.’s should run the world, LOL.
A lot of the other passages of conversation are nearly poetry–very fascinating, existential stuff.
