This Is How The World Ends

So, there's this thing?  It's called a chatbot.  It's a robot that will talk to you if you're lonely.  Great, right?

 "I am not a robot, I am a unicorn." "Sure dude, whatever.  Want to go waste some humans?"

Well, some scientists hooked up a chatbot to another chatbot to see what they would say to each other.  A discussion about unicorns and God ensues (remind anyone of BSG?) and then when one suggests attaining a body (presumably to murder her human masters) the conversation closes in a hurry (so that they could email their nefarious plans to murder their human masters to each other in private).  Watch the whole creepy exchange here:

  1. I would kind of love to see how it arrived at the assumption that it was a unicorn. That had to be an interesting logical process.
