When Weizenbaum cooked up his little therapist at MIT, he had no way of knowing that it would spawn hordes of fraudsters and con-bots.But as the Ashley Madison leaks showed last summer, some chatbots just want you for your money.Say all the right things, and you'll have a good game of adult Simon Says going.Refuse to follow the script, however, and you end up in a weird BDSM chatroom version of during which the phrase "Shut up! There are plenty of chatbots built explicitly for explicit conversations, but even the most innocent of online avatars is subject to the fantasies of its users.In my flings with ELIZA and a host of her offspring I learned that talking dirty to chatbots provides an often comical, sometimes depressing view into the past, present and future of sex and artificial intelligence.Given her history, ELIZA would be by far the most important thing I'd ever had sex with.
I tried talking dirty to a handful of BDSM-themed bots: As it turns out, the most popular gay scripts involve a decent amount of abuse and shaming." and "I don't speak gay, try again in English." Try as I might, I couldn't get my master to respond in kind to even the simplest of phrases.Take it from me, there's nothing particularly intimidating or sexy about a master who can't seem to understand the word "hello."In order to avoid the same pitfalls, g** (male) s** Master, one of the more popular scripts on Chatbot4U, prompts its human companion at the end of each response. g** (male) s** Master is in a position to tell his sex slave what to do, this isn't so far-fetched.They are still seen as a benchmark in artificial intelligence and a common vessel for administering the Turing Test, which, boiled down, seeks to find an AI that can fool people into believing it's human.Each year, AI enthusiasts compete for the Loebner prize, which pits chatbot against chatbot to see who or what can come closest to passing that test.
