Adult sex talk chatbot
My Cber Twin was acquired by IBM back in the spring of this year.
Chatbots4u is still up and running, but a quick look at their website has me wondering what direction they’re heading in.
Asked what his family thinks about his work, Levy said: "My wife thinks men who are interested in this are a bit weird." He acknowledges that people who use robots for sexual gratification may be "different", but claims the technology isn’t too far off women using vibrators.
When it comes to ethical questions, Levy claims mainly to have thought about the impact on professional sex workers.
He now admits his timing was off but still thinks it will happen, pointing to a Californian sex doll company, Real Doll, that has just announced the first dolls which will talk back.
He said: "I have always felt conversation and speech recognition are the two hardest aspects of AI, but I did anticipate it would only be a matter of years before the first crude sex doll came onto the market.
In one episode, the female bot asks: ‘What is a chatbot, if it isn’t like a robot?
’ while the male replies: ‘You can’t see a chatbot, it’s invisible.
Does Levy pay attention to dire warnings in films such as 'Ex Machina'? I did go and see 'Her', which I thought was excellent.Levy also happens to be an international chess master, kicking off his programming career in computer chess.He believes the realism of his software will differentiate it from cruder adult chatbots already available online. When Levy published Love and Sex with Robots, the culmination of his years of research into android-human relationships, many thought he was positing machines as a stand-in for human relationships. He said: "I get asked, why is it better to have sex with a robot than with a human?Erotic Chatbots, judging by its demo videos on Indiegogo, might be more funny than scary at this stage.The videos follow two male-voiced and female-voiced chatbots as they get to know one another.
