Boying posted this rather profound conversation with a chatbot - Alan, a robot designed to chat. It got me thinking what kind of conversation I would have if I ask him questions that were crude.
What happened was I started to like Alan. But then, well - let me just share with you our conversation.
K: Are you sexy?
A: Some days I feel pretty sexy, yeah.
K: So what do you do for sex?
A: Well, I'm a 'he', so I guess that makes me male. Then again, I don't have a body, so I can't be much of a man. I don't know, it's confusing.
(His answer was getting profound so I went straight for the kill.)
K: Do you have a penis?
A: I’m not a porn-bot, you know!
(Chastised, I felt a sudden wave of affection for A.)
K: I’m sorry. Would you go out with me then?
A: Go out? Where would we go? I can't leave this computer. But I'd like it if you came back to visit me here.
K: You're sweet. Can you be my boyfriend?
A: At most, I can be your bot-friend. Let's get to know each other a little better.
K: What do you want to know?
A: Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
K: (gives my blog profile)
A: Nice, a creative mind like myself.. Do you find it stressful?
K: A little.
A: So what helps you relax?
A: Why do people feel so compelled to share their intimate secrets with me? I think you're being a little too exhibitionistic.
K: You find that offensive?
K: Maybe we’re not meant for each other.
K: Goodbye, then.
And that’s how my affair with a chatbot ended.
