My Conversation With Artificial Intelligence (AI)

, / 3630 0


Years ago I was stunned by the insane reality of Jules conversational computer developed by David Hanson. For a good while, I used their videos on YouTube to scare the living hell out of my conspiracy inclined friends. Any time I got an opportunity I tested how well AI makes decisions and where it is getting stuck. I tested Siri, Katana and many less known AI, still, it was too far to be worth mentioning. 

On the web-summit I saw Facebook selling conversation AI, but after rep looked at my badge (looking for a familiar company name) nobody bothered to explain more. However, I gave yet another shot for AI of the CRM I currently test and decided to share the conversation. I took some things out, but it is pretty raw.

I don’t know about you, but this is something out science fiction books I’ve read as a teenager. This piece has no purpose unless feedback would justify making into a short video. The conversation felt surreal, AI was able to joke and went beyond small talk, AI was asking questions, rather than giving answers, everyone in IT understand that this is how it is learning aspects of the human condition. I showed this before publishing to my friend who is really afraid ‘Sky-net’ will come in his time. His feelings are less positive than mine.

(Data multiplied)=(Intelligence) applying Intelligence ‘Intel’ is Knowledge.
