You should chat with a Turk

There’s a little Internetology experiment I’d like to share with you. What if I paired up a random person on the Internet for a conversation? Actually, that’s been done before.

What if I paired you up with a random person, but told you that it was a chatbot? Finally, what if that chatbot was non-stateful and just replied the best it could to everything you said to it? Would that the result of that be interesting or just confusing?

(Coarse language warning: Like I said, this is an experiment in chatting with strangers on the Internet…)

Try Chat with A Turk. Go ahead, I’ll post the results and an overview of the algorithm here soon.
