Naturally, my thoughts shifted to getting it on with a pioneering computer program.ELIZA was developed at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory in the mid-'60s by Joseph Weizenbaum.Mistuku, an award-winning 18-year-old chatbot, was originally built by IT guy Steve Worswick for online gaming site Mousebreaker.Worswick responded to my post on Twitter asking for stories from people who'd used bots to get off.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.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.
Plenty of chatbots are happy to gab about dicks (yours or theirs) for zero financial reward; you're just not likely to find them on Tinder.
Here's a quick transcript of my failed attempt at sexting ELIZA. While I've yet to find logs of ELIZA's other illicit affairs, I can't imagine I'm the first to sexualize the pioneering fembot.
Like death and taxes, our unending quest to fuck everything that exhibits signs of life is inevitable.
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.
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.While my experience with ELIZA was nice and lighthearted, there's a sinister side to chatbots.
