Two Ultra Hal Chatbots Talk, Things Get Weird

Wow. Just wow. I just finished watching this 2011 video of two Ultra Hal chatbots by Zabaware having a conversation. It is creepy as anything. The conversation goes down all kinds of weird roads and it all devolves into a strangely adult place.

If you are nor familiar with it, Ultra Hal learns from conversations with other people and through Twitter as it studies human to human chat. Obviously these aren’t great ways to teach communication. This video is very unsettling to say the least.

Watch the whole thing if you have time. It is strange and creepy, and I feel weird now. Please stop educating these AIs. And for god’s sake stop letting them talk to each other.
