Computer synthesis and simulation of all types...

The place for those who find the use of computers useful, or interesting, in anything from music synthesis to designing flight simulators and the like.

Can a computer, or more accurately, a neural net, become sentient? There are some who think Google's new AI technology has. Whatever the case, the fact that the software is so successful at simulating human speech, that it seems to pass the Turing Test, poses fundamental ethical questions, not least in the way that the average human might interact with the technology.

Sentient chatbot?



Google says its chatbot is not sentient.

"Of course, some in the broader AI community are considering the long-term possibility of sentient or general AI, but it doesn't make sense to do so by anthropomorphizing today's conversational models, which are not sentient," said Google spokesman Brian Gabriel.
Personally I think that the Google "Technician", Blake Lemoine, should get out more, find a life, instead of chatting to bots (says he posting on an internet forum at 04:31 in the morning). =))
