A few weeks ago I was introduced to the world of BDSM scripts: simple sims that replicate the experience of being with a dominatrix.It occurred to me that these scripts had a connection to ELIZA, one of the earliest examples of a natural language processing program.
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.
Say all the right things, and you'll have a good game of adult Simon Says going.
Given her history, ELIZA would be by far the most important thing I'd ever had sex with.
Of course, the ELIZA I was trying to bone was one of many clones, and it's hard to say how close to the original it really comes, but after testing a few different versions, the results were equal parts frustrating and hilarious.
But as the Ashley Madison leaks showed last summer, some chatbots just want you for your money.
reported that Ashley Madison employed "more than 70,000 female bots to send male users millions of fake messages, hoping to create the illusion of a vast playland of available women."The site's philandering users weren't alone in getting duped.
Nearly 50 years later, thousands -- maybe millions -- of chatbots populate the internet.
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.
While my experience with ELIZA was nice and lighthearted, there's a sinister side to chatbots.
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.
Hookup bots have become online dating archetypes, joining ghosts and catfish as 21st century matchmaking anti-heroes.
