intelligent chatbots

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a dream for over half a century now. Researchers have been building robots and software to try and mimic the human brain for as long as they possibly could, and are nowhere near building a thinking application than they were when they started. A lot of people will disagree with that, of course, and we don’t mind. A.L.I.C.E. (Artificial Linguistic Internet Computer Entity), can simulate intelligence to an untrained observer, but doesn’t understand the meaning of what’s being said.

Basically, everything to do with computers uses mathematics, and it’s near-impossible to make a computer understand characteristics of human speech or conversation such as wit and sarcasm. And if that’s hard, imagine how impossible it is for a computer to understand the difference between someone telling the truth and someone lying!

See for yourself – some eagerful talkative chatbots – that you might even want to have a chat with: Eliza, Jabberwacky, Ultra Hal Assistant, and Fred.
