While more sophisticated methods of machine learning are in development, many of today's chatbots are still built on a similar coded call-and-response formula as ELIZA.
Personal and Professional applications for such uses as Customer Service Agents and On-Line Assistance.
With big names like Google in the game, we're getting ever closer to human-like AI.
Chatbots hold an important place in the evolution of Artificial Intelligence. So as humans do, we've found a way to turn them into receptacles for our basest desires.
To the trained eye, they're easy to spot, with little if any information in their profiles, a single photo displaying an incredible body and a flawless face and a whole lot of "lolz ;)."In my experience, the conversations usually goes something like this: It doesn't matter what you say next or really at any point in the conversation, the bot will inevitably send you a link to a camsite where you'll promptly be asked to hand over your credit card information.
(Pro tip: Next time a bot tells you how big its dick is, do yourself a favor and ask for its mother's ambrosia salad recipe.)Of course, not all of ELIZA's progeny are nefarious gold diggers.
