Extreme sex chat bot
Last year I blogged about the creepy phenomenon of cyranoids. To meet an echoborg is to meet chat-bot, in other words – but without knowing it.A cyranoid is a person who speaks the words of another person. The researcher then reads this response into a microphone, and the shadower listens to the response via a hidden earpiece. As Corti and Gillespie put it, echoborgs So the authors conducted a study in which 41 adult volunteers met and conversed with a stranger.only 3 of 20 participants (15%) in the Echoborg condition stated this.Others thought that the study was about people with autism or a speech impairment.They paused before speaking, due to the time required for the researcher to type what they heard into the chat-bot and then speak the response out-loud to the shadower.The mean ‘audio latency’ was around 5 seconds per statement.
