I am a unicorn

My favourite news story of the week today in this BBC News article on what is apparently the first AI conversation.

The two get into something of a spat, with one needling the other about it being a robot and the other being quite indignant in response. My favourite riposte from the conversation is a little surreal though – “I’m not a robot. I’m a unicorn”. OK…

AI natural language programs have come a long way since the days of Eliza but it’s an interesting take on the Turing Test if even the robot can tell it’s conversation partner’s another AI.
