Some guys are just not great at relationships. As he admits in his interview with Gizmodo, Zoltan (not his real name) is one of those guys.


This was my favorite part.

I've heard about the ALICE bot before, which I always thought was an IM bot (i.e. SmarterChild) but with a few more AI components written to cover some or many nuances of cybersex.

As sick as it sounds, I'd be pretty impressed if indeed he built an actual bot this sophisticated in about a year's time, but then again, this could be the beginning of Skynet with a deadly mix of Jenna Jameson.

There could be someone really like this and "robot love" isn't a fantasy. It is basically something "we" know will happen. Humans can falls in love with anything they empathize with and when robots can show true reactive emotion, it's going to happen. However, there is something about the story and a lot about his site that is fishy. No major news source that I can find mentions it and "all" of the robot-prototyping articles posted to IBM's AI/robotics boards have been removed by the administrators. And one of the books he points to on his site is available on Amazon but is basically a known fraud.


You are correct with that bolded part, as the concept has been explored before. There are a fair number of popular Japanese animated shows that depict this kind of relationship and they have a fair amount of depth, none of which have very bright endings.

In reality, I'm not sure where to make of it. It's going to be controversial, but whatever floats his boat.

You know that editing the post doesn't really accomplish anything when it's quoted right under you, right? :*)
