As you may already know, a chatbot is a computer program that can stimulate conversation with humans. There is even an annual competition, the Loebner prize, that awards a 100,000 dollars to the robot that best passes for a human. But what would happen if two bots talk to each other? This very experiment was tested by students at the Cornell Creative Machines Lab. The result is somewhere between surrealist and comical. Wouldn’t you know, when two robots meet– they end up talking about God!
