Anyone feel like reviewing my chatbot, A.I. Alex? It’s at http://ai-alex.propercomfy.co.uk. The bot is available for download, or you can talk to it online.
If anyone does do a review of it, can you drop me a line as well (email@example.com). That way I can put a link on my site to the review - or just post the text there if you want.
Oh, and Alex is entered in this year’s ChatterBox Challange (http://web.infoave.net/~kbcowart/), so feel free to vote for it there ;)]]>
Yes, onward and upward indeed! I should make this clear now that you’re all welcome to email Mark, Jeremy or myself with reviews of bots. We’ll post them for you.]]>
Well-written reviews of any media are sometimes more interesting than the piece itself! A case in point: Anthony Lane’s film reviews in “The New Yorker.”
Lewis laCook’s review of ada1852 was good. I had my first successful chat with her just now. There were always some unexplained technical problems before. Because of this, I have never yet been able to view the art in the database. Rhizome’s arrangement of making Friday a free day and asking for a modest membership fee to cover other days sounds eminently fair.
Jill Walker’s review of Online Caroline was excellent. She brought out the queasy, uneasy elements of interactive theater in general. A lot of people I know don’t want to chat with bots, but can’t articulate why; they might just say it’s “creepy.” Walker’s review helps to examine this.
I like seeing bots/interactive theater taken seriously as art forms. Onward and upward!]]>
