As a sci-fi buff, I particularly enjoy movies about man vs. artificial intelligence – especially when it’s well-executed. Whether it is in the form of a robot or a computer screen, it’s fascinating and sometimes quite scary to consider how artificial intelligence works and thinks.
Some of the good films that pop to mind are I, Robot, The Matrix (with its immortal line “Never send a human to do a machine’s job”), The Terminator, RoboCop, Blade Runner, and of course, classics such as Star Wars and Star Trek. Among the most recent ones I loved include superhero blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron and Pixar’s hopeful and adorable Wall-E.
But how do artificial intelligence bots interact with each other in real life? Well, we can get an idea by watching the video below.
In this short video, we see two chatbots conversing with one another:
Originally uploaded back in August 2011 by Cornell Creative Machines Lab, this 1-minute video recently resurfaced back on the web as it has been shared by several viral news websites. Currently, it already has 4,694,527 views.
The video begins by describing the scenario:
“We wanted to find out what would happen when you let two chatbots talk to each other. So we hooked up Cleverbot to itself and watched what happened…”
The conversation then began and that’s when stuff started to take a disturbing spin. At one point, you’ll hear the lady A.I. asking “Don’t you want to have a body?” which really sounds creepy, to be honest. It is, however, undeniably funny when the guy claimed “I am not a robot. I am a unicorn.”
