What Happens When Two Chat-Bots Talk?

Anyone seen Rise of the Planet of the Apes? Same thing.

Researchers at Cornell University have rigged together two chat-bots in a bid to see how one would respond to the other, with interesting outcomes.
In essence, a chat-bot is a computer program which is designed to simulate intelligent conversation with it’s user. The general aim to mimic that of human communication, to an extent where the user can’t tell the difference. Terminator anyone?

The outcome of two talking together is incredibly interesting and makes you realise how close we are to artificial communication, and almost intelligence. In fact, when you contact the likes of Lloyds TSB or The Royal Bank of Scotland, you’ll be put through to a chatbot to identify your query.

Have a look.
