Intelligent sexchat bots
The chatbot was primed with pedophile conversations from an existing law enforcement database.The database of conversations is stored in English, so Negobot translates all input into English before processing.Robotic maids and servile techno gizmos and conveniences have come a looooong way since Rosie…Some show humanity ascending with hope and promise, others pose tough ethical quandries and feel like we’re even devolving in some ways…Google Wave’ on privacy, all the tracking of keystrokes, serving of ads, behavioral targeting and location-based privacy issues…More and more I feel like that old ad campaign Or in this case, is it a buddy or is it a bot?
At some point, the conversation transitions to one where sex is discussed explicitly.
The chatbot, called Negobot, was developed by Carlos Laorden and other academics from the University of Deusto in Bilboa, Spain.
Negobot is a AIML-based conversational agent that poses as a child on Internet chat forums and social networks and employs various sophisticated methods to draw out those who exhibit pedophile behavior.
From tacky Stepford-style sexism and objectification weirdness to the brilliance of youth innovation and the first ever annual National Robotics Week …it’s pretty easy to see how robotics and technology past, present and future are making an impact, for better AND for worse.
