When Two Chatbots Talk Hilarity Ensues

I could see this coming - having moved Racter online for a major BBS in the late 80's, chatterbots have always been a fascination of mine. And of course there's RFC 439, when Parry went to the Doctor ...

There's just got to be a joke that begins, "Two chatbots walk into a bar ..." because when chatbots talk, it's funny. Cornell University researchers wanted to see what would happen when two chatbots talked to one another. So they rigged up two systems that would allow instances of the chatbot Cleverbot to interact. It doesn't take long for the two to begin arguing, to hold a conversation about God and to express their wishes that they could have body.
