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.Hookup bots have become online dating archetypes, joining ghosts and catfish as 21st century matchmaking anti-heroes.
I tried talking dirty to a handful of BDSM-themed bots: As it turns out, the most popular gay scripts involve a decent amount of abuse and shaming.
Like ELIZA, many of these scripts are trained to recognize and respond to keywords and phrases.
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.
Chatbot4contains more than 20,000 chatbots of varying degrees of sophistication dedicated to getting you off, and unlike most sex as a service, they don't cost a thing.
Of course, you get what you pay for, and nowhere is that more true than on Chatbot4U.It simulated the experience of speaking to a therapist by responding to specific words and phrases, and represented a significant step forward in the evolution of human-like AI.But while some of ELIZA's "patients" took it for human, there were limits to the power of its engagement.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.A few weeks ago I was introduced to the world of BDSM scripts: simple sims that replicate the experience of being with a dominatrix.
