I’ve not completely lost my grip on reality in the face of the surreal horrors coming daily out of D. Last night, a friend clued me in to a curious promotional tool for Fifty Shades Darker that allows you to sext with “Christian Grey.” Okay, so he’s a bot.

” In 1950 mathematician Alan Turing pondered this question and invented an elegant game to answer it: Let a human chat via Teletype with a computer and another human; if the person can’t determine which is the computer, then it meets Turing’s standards for “thinking.” In recent years Turing’s game has taken on a life of its own in cyberspace, thanks to artificial intelligence inventors worldwide who have produced dozens of “chatbots” that anyone can talk to.
Some users have chatted with ALICE and Jabberwacky online for hours, apparently not knowing—or perhaps not caring—that they’re fake. To get each snippet of chat rolling, we seeded it by posing a question from one bot to the other. What follows is the unaltered text of what each said—the sound of two machines talking. Richard Wallace, creator of the top-ranked chatbot ALICE (Artificial Linguistic Internet Computer Entity), has handwritten a database of thousands of possible conversational gambits. Type a comment to ALICE, and it checks the phrase and its key words for a response coded to those words. The link, which activated a few moments later, turned out to be my profile picture. Still, I was underwhelmed by our first Tete-a-text. And if you want to play with Christian Grey Chatbot yourself, go here.
