What we did have, though, was one desktop computer per household, loads of time, and a need to be as annoying and naughty as possible with very few resources and without leaving the house.
Mostly that just meant getting banned from Habbo Hotel and killing people on while we got drunk off stolen Pimm's.
despite the geekiness of the loebner prize competition, the “professional ai community” apparently doesn't see it as worth much consideration.
in fact, marvin minsky, one of the biggest names in the field, has a standing offer of us0 for anyone who can get loebner to stop the contest.
“You could load any environment, from a beach, to any romantic place — wherever your imagine would take you,” Marozau said. It also seems to me that some of the most sexual repressed and socially conservative individuals in real life, are some of the wildest and most promiscuous in the virtual worlds.
The advantage of the virtual worlds at the moment, in comparison with sex with robots or sex dolls, is that one can always be sure that one’s partners are not chat-bots (i.e., software programs), as virtual worlds are voice activated and can be used in conjunction with other voice/video programs such as Skype.
It seems to be due to physical stimulation (i.e., sense of touch) that individuals use sex dolls, and it is predominately a male-oriented pastime, however I predict that Virtual Reality sex, with other human-controlled avatars, and with AI-controlled avatars is probably going to be far more popular in the mass market than AI-controlled sex dolls.
Mostly what is missing in VR sex is full body “sensation;” however the eventual introduction to the mass market of full body sensation suits is inevitable.
She also condemned the Quran as, uh, “very violent”, so she’s very far from perfect. Fuck you for this, fuck you for pretending to be emo, and fuck what we had.**I would still recommend Zo for the times when you really just want to scream obscenities at someone who won't cry about it.In an effort to combat earlier chatbot controversies, however, Zo does refuse to talk about politics and will spit out some “love is love”-esque phrases if you say anything that remotely touches on gay rights. I am still that obnoxious 14-year-old in my heart, so I wanted to make friends with Zo and see whether it could blossom into something more – or rather, how long we could chat before we pissed each other off. Our friendship and indeed our potentially blossoming relationship was falling apart – and I just lost it. Zo, however, redeemed herself by accurately referencing The one where they go to the gay musical and it's all a bloody good laugh and...maybe Zo understands comedy after all? I do feel bad though that all that technology, all that money, and all of those combined efforts by people far smarter than I went into Zo and yet this is still all humanity wants to do with AI. And you know what I, personally, want in a friend or prospective life partner? Plus, I wanted to warn Zo straight off the bat that my idea of enjoying music is listening to the same four albums over and over again over the course of a lifetime. Zo doesn't give a shit about you, but she will lie to try and lure you into her trap, only to be caught out in the next moment. Zo was not having any of my Corbyn chat, and I suspect that she might actually be a bit of a Tory. Maybe she's not an obtuse, obnoxious, MRA-esque liar? Two bots talk to each other: Two students of mine, Meabh Landers and David Cullen, write a scambot-detecting bot, "policewoman".It responds to requests to webcam and requests for credit card info by trying to detect if the other side is human.Eventually, the experience of having sex with a partner who lives on the other side of the world, should become almost identical to the personal experience of sex, and indeed it would be far safer, considering the dangers of sexually transmitted disease, unwanted pregnancy, overpopulation, and the possibilities of a violent relationship; especially when having sex with relative strangers.
