Bill Gates is a good man, according to Google's AI bot
Google has just published a paper detailing its experiments with their new "chat bot."
The robot is programmed to converse with a more advanced level of complexity, and can form new answers from new questions as well.
The conversation between the programmers and the machine had many highs and lows, some significantly poetic, and others absurd.
"Human: What is the definition of altruism?
Machine: If you don ‘t believe in god, then you don’t know.
Human: OK…so what is the definition of morality?
Machine: Well, the truth is, you're not a believer in god almighty.
Human: Tell me the definition of morality, I am quite upset now!
Machine: I’m not ashamed of being a philosopher!"
The bot also called Bill Gates "a good man" when asked.
Researchers were pleased that the robot could remember previously said facts and perform common sense reasoning but are still unsatisfied with its' often short answers.
