The engineers at Cornell University’s Creative Machines Lab wanted to know what a conversation between two "chatbots" would be like. So they hooked up "Cleverbot" to itself and the following, somewhat testy, exchange took place: (Source)

How It Works:
The system depicted was created by combining three components: a chatbot, a text-to-speech synthesizer, and an avatar renderer.
Chatbots are machines designed to emulate the conversational abilities of humans, conversing with a human user and generally attempting to convince the user into thinking that the machine is human. In such a scenario, if a sufficiently adept human on one end is fooled into thinking the machine is another human, the machine would be credited as passing the famous Turing Test for intelligence. Over 60 years after its proposal by Alan Turing, there are arguably still no machines capable of passing this test. The chatbot we initially used was Eliza, a prominent early milestone from AI’s infancy in the 1960’s. This tended to produce fairly boring conversations, so we switched to a much smarter, more modern chatbot: Cleverbot. Publicly available on Cleverbot.com, this state of the art chat engine was created by AI researcher Rollo Carpenter, who can be contacted via his company, Existor.

Trump Goes #Cuckservative on Immigration 2015-08-01 1:28
For weeks, the media have trumpeted the supposed death of the Trump campaign. First, they claimed, Trump’s campaign imploded on launch thanks to his comments about illegal immigration.
