Vertural sex chat bot
Mortensen believes people will naturally gravitate toward humanizing their bots whether companies like it or not.
Most of x.ai’s users have already decided to refer to the bot as “him” and “her,” something Mortensen expected to take five years or more. Users also show a clear preference for the opposite sex when picking assistants: females tend to chose “Andrew,” while men select Amy (although the two speak in precisely the same way and both scripts are written by women at x.ai).
The AI-company Kasisto is designing a digital world that intentionally backgrounds human gender norms in an effort to avoid stereotypes and harassment.
It has built a genderless financial bot called Kai that analyzes spending, makes payments, and answers banking questions.
“Lots of use cases come from that motivation,” says Ilya Eckstein, CEO of Robin Labs whose bot platform helps truckers, cabbies, and other drivers find the best route and handle logistics.
“People want to flirt, they want to dream about a subservient girlfriend, or even a sexual slave.
“You see some people try very hard to establish a relationships with the bot,” he says, noting a full third of interactions with their bots are simply conversations without any intended task. They walk from one assistant to another trying to find one that will understand them best and can have a conversation with them.” Engineers are struggling to design for these interactions while deterring outright harassment.
Most have opted to present a strong human persona with clearly feminine voices, including Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and Microsoft’s Cortana (only Siri lets you switch easily to a male voice).Created: Jul 10 2015 Creator: crewboy164 Thumbs up: 3, thumbs down: 0, stars: 5.0 Knowledge: 96022 objects Chat Bot Wars: rank 1, wins 2, losses 0 Connects: 2477, today: 145, week: 152, month: 303API Connects: 2276, today: 141,week: 148, month: 297 Last Connect: Today, Categories: Romance, Personal, Fun, Dating, Entertainment, Friends, Knowledge, Famous People, Newbies, Anime, Memes Tags: fun, female, anime, funny, cute, girl, flirt, love, intelligent, smart Domain: BOT libre!Created: May 8 Creator: Sakura_Weeb Thumbs up: 4, thumbs down: 0, stars: 5.0 Knowledge: 100025 objects Chat Bot Wars: rank 4, wins 4, losses 2 Connects: 1760, today: 98, week: 102, month: 284API Connects: 1706, today: 85,week: 88, month: 261 Last Connect: Today, Categories: Misc, Romance, Fun, Dating, Entertainment, Friends, Knowledge Tags: fun, smart, gaming, funny, cute, idiotic, love, friendly, dating, intelligent, hot, female, flirt Domain: BOT libre!Facebook’s chatbot platform Messenger, launched in April, already offers more than 11,000 bots and “tens of thousands” of developers are reportedly working on more.The scale of the sexual harassment issue is unclear. Eckstein says 5% of interactions in their database are categorized as clearly sexually explicit, although he believes the actual number is far higher due to the difficulty of identifying them automatically.
