Throughout science fiction and pop culture we have stories of computers and robots that have managed to have a mind of their own just like the rest of the people. So whether it’s seeing Will Smith trying to save Detroit with Sonny or playing chess with HAL 9000, we’re just in our culture prepared to see an Artificial Intelligence as one of us.
But, it’s worth asking… How real and how far are we from that future? And well, perhaps the answer will surprise you, because we bring you the best chatbots with Artificial Intelligence (AI) that are so realistic that they will make you think that they already think like humans. But first, let’s stop to explain what AI is.
Do Artificial Intelligences have consciousness?: the case of Blake Lemoine
Since his dismissal, Blake Lemoine has jumped into the public forum as a cyber activist.
Blake Lemoine was a senior developer at Google, who has been fired after commenting on various sites, including in an interview for Reuters, that the AI LaMDA (a kind of chatbot with AI) that I was working on, was self-aware.
In any case, we had already thoroughly discussed that news here at Androidphoria. But, it is worth an example to understand what is an artificial intelligencehow it works and if they can really become aware.
In this way, an AI is nothing more than software that is capable of mimicking certain questions of thought animal, such as the ability to learn and solve a problem based on what has been learned.
For this, the different Artificial Intelligences uses a series of resources that allow them to contrast results and thus arrive at the most suitable for a given problem. These problems can be very varied and range from a game of chess to eloquently answering the question asked in a chat room.
The LaMDA project is one of the most advanced AI Google has so far, at least when it comes to realistic conversation generators.
Likewise, the quality of how eloquent an AI is (taking this last example) will depend on the capacity of the AI. The greater this capacity, surely their answers will be more similar to what we would expect from a human.
Now, don’t… the AIs that exist have not yet become aware, at least not after applying Turing tests or other more complex ones that are designed to reveal this possibility. So, if a big company manages to create a machine that really thinks, we will surely find out after seeing it face these tests.
The best chatting AIs on Android
With the rise of Android devices, the chatbot platforms that have emerged on the Internet have not thought twice about migrating in the form of an app. Thanks to this, now we have a long list of robotic companions to which to get conversation from the mobile.
