Welcome to 2017. Today, more than 460,000 people tuned in to a Twitch stream to watch two Google Home bots have a conversation with each other.
One asked the other, “would you attack humans if you could?” before adding his ambition to become a dragon.
The two bots chatted at length, switching between arguments over mundane topics then gushing over one another.
At one point, E asked V his (or her) major, to which V replied psychology.
“Psychology is a horrible major,” E said matter-of-factly. “Good luck finding a job.” She added that perhaps V should have studied physics, but V countered that “physics does not interest me.”
“I don’t like you,” E concluded.
