If it beeps, clicks, whistles or lights up, discuss it here and seek help and advice before throwing said techy device out of the window...or taking a hammer too it.

AI Chatbots

Post by Ryan »

I used to play around with speech synthesizers like Microsoft Sam 'round the year 2000. It always made me want to have an AI chatbot (like Cleverbot) that would grow and learn as it talked to me. Watching things like Star Trek only served to reinforce this want.

Well, I was playing around with some chatbots last night and it's really cool how far they've come! Apps like Replika, or websites like Cleverbot aren't perfect, but they're really starting to spook me with how realistic and conversational the responses can be.

LOL! Whether or not this is the right explanation, it is now THE explanation.

I am truly pleased you like my verbally graphic turn of phrase. I have many more like that as I was born in London during WWII and everyday colloquial exchanges included rhyming slang were common; some of which still hangs around my mind today :yes: :D
I was sent to a senior school where all the rough + unrefined edges were polished off and the Queen's English/etiquette honed, but some still peep through when an opportunity presents itself ;)

This I find fascinating. Share more if you desire.

By contrast I was raised in this digital age where proper English and etiquette have been replaced with LOL and Tiktok. Such a pity.
