Could chat bots be the future of phone sex? Here’s how AI can get even kinkier than real girls.
With breakthroughs in natural language generation technology, such as GPT-3, computers are quickly becoming able to converse and generate text in a way that’s indistinguishable from humans. One area where we could see this technology applied widely in the near future is with phone sex and online sex chat. Chatting With Virtual Phone Sex Operators […]
A Spanish team is in the first place of the 2K BotPrize 2010
In 1950 the British mathematician Alan Turing published an influential article entitled “Computing Machines and Intelligence. There, for the first time, the question was posed as to whether a computer could think. Faced with the impossibility of defining what intelligence is, Turing proposed to replace the initial question with an equivalent one, but much easier […]
Two Teams win the BotPrize!
In a breakthrough result, after five years of striving from 14 different international teams from nine countries, two teams have cracked the human-like play barrier! It’s especially satisfying that the prize has been won in the 2012 Alan Turing Centenary Year. Where to now for human-like bots? Next year we hope to propose a new and exciting […]
The Awakening of Conscious Bots: Inside the Mind of the 2K BotPrize 2010 Winner
Most of current efforts in the development of believable bots — bots that behave like human players — are based on classical AI techniques. These techniques are based on relatively old principles, which nevertheless are being progressively improved or wisely adapted increasing their performance in order to satisfy new game requirements. Taking a different perspective, […]
Behavior Generation in Bots
Having a shared workspace, where sensory and motor flows converge, facilitates the implementation of the multiple feedback loops required for adapted and effective behavior. The winning simple behavior is continuously confronted to new options generated in the physical layer, thus providing a mechanism for interrupting behaviors in progress as soon as they are no longer […]
Two unreal bots are more human than many people
The judges were wrong and rated two bots in the game Unreal Tournament 2004 as more human than most human players. But that was exactly the aim of this unusual competition, which was held for the fifth time. DISPLAY In the fifth year of the 2K Botprize, two teams succeeded in convincing the jurors that […]
