And we talk to the man who coded Cleverbot, a software program that learns from every new line of conversation it receives..that's chatting with more than 3 million humans each month. It seems questionable that a machine could approach the potency of being human without at least two substitutions: 1. Wow, listening to this show I started wondering if one day soon a computer would be more human than a person with autism. Are telling me you've not even read a Ray Kurzweil book?? Lately the show has been on a downwards slide scientifically. I feel sorry for you, that you will never know what that tastes like.

Its great that you guys delve deeper into topics that wow freshman philosophy classes, but I wish you wouldn't ruin the show by assuming that these are utterly new and staggeringly breakthrough ideas that you must devote 10 minutes of remedial backstory to-- so there was this guy named Descarte--you've probably never heard of him--he had this radical idea about the ontology of consciousness... You are incapable of having anything important to say. Cleverbot: Too bad that hasn't improved your furby part especially reminds me of the twilight zone episode #7 "the lonely" where a prisoner on an asteroid in the future is given a beautiful android woman as a companion.
Then, we encounter a robot therapist whose inventor became so unnerved by its success that he pulled the plug. That wouldn't make sense, but it's one of the only things I can think of. Intelligence is like the scaffolding of a much richer experience. Cleverbot: Exactly, who is he, all I know is that he has a frozen cat! " What do you think WE are if not just extraordinarily complex mechanical machines? I know you traditionally play the role of the ignorant elder generation guy who's never "seen the movie," or apparently ever even picked up a copy of scientific American or watched a TED talk; you play the part of the guy who pretends to be incredulous about scientific concepts and has the sort of, religious-traditionalist, dualistic, non-materialist kind of world view, but you guys have been going way too far and playing way too 'dumb' lately.
And we were one of the first to show up (but we were fashionably early).
That’s when we first started making lifelong relationships happen. Read more Few scenes are as serene as watching a kayaker glide across a lake.
