Human Or Chatbot? Real Or Not Real?

When reality starts losing its boundaries.

This article is letter (R) of our “Chatbot Future" series where we write an article for each letter of the phrase. “Chatbot Future" finds out how chatbots improve our lives in today's world and beyond! Find links to more articles in the series below. 

 

It’s interesting times we live in when you have to question whether you’re talking to a human or a chatbot. Plus, don’t forget humanity’s fantasy of artificial intelligence becoming sentient. Let’s look at this real/ unreal phenomenon.

 

Why The Confusion?

 

In short, it can sometimes be confusing whether you’re chatting with a chatbot simply because Artificial Intelligence has gotten really good.

The Turing test measures a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behavior indistinguishable from a human.

To pass the Turing test is to “trick” a person into believing they are talking to another human when it is actually a chatbot.

 

How To Tell The Difference

 

If you want to try it, yes, you can do this at home. Choose your ambiguous chat of choice.

Is this a customer support agent or a customer support bot? Ask open-ended questions, metaphors, or analogies.

For all their smarty-pants, chatbots still follow a script. For example, ask “Entrepreneurship is like an uphill climb. I don’t get it. Do you know what that means?”

 

Where Can I Get A Human Around Here?

 

If you’re itching to talk to a mammal of the homo sapiens variety, jump onto the companies customer support line.

 

Word Up:

These chatty-cathy, smarty-pants chatbots won’t have the upper hand on us yet. Hope you enjoyed reading some tips and you can now better know who’s who.
