“You could load any environment, from a beach, to any romantic place — wherever your imagine would take you,” Marozau said. It also seems to me that some of the most sexual repressed and socially conservative individuals in real life, are some of the wildest and most promiscuous in the virtual worlds.
The advantage of the virtual worlds at the moment, in comparison with sex with robots or sex dolls, is that one can always be sure that one’s partners are not chat-bots (i.e., software programs), as virtual worlds are voice activated and can be used in conjunction with other voice/video programs such as Skype.
It seems to be due to physical stimulation (i.e., sense of touch) that individuals use sex dolls, and it is predominately a male-oriented pastime, however I predict that Virtual Reality sex, with other human-controlled avatars, and with AI-controlled avatars is probably going to be far more popular in the mass market than AI-controlled sex dolls.
Mostly what is missing in VR sex is full body “sensation;” however the eventual introduction to the mass market of full body sensation suits is inevitable.
the contest consists of judges conducting typed “conversations” with the contestant programs and two humans (there used to be four) to try to figure out who the humans are, then giving scores from 1 to 25. thrashed her (she is a “female entity”–her words) 7 competitors (authored by computer professionals, students, self-taught programmers, chemical engineers, etc.) this year, and one judge even said she was “the second-most human talker in the event,” putting her above one of the actual humans. wallace has an excellent website all about a.l.i.c.e.
and her aiml (artificial intelligence markup language–xml described as minimalist and simple) backbone–you can even chat with her (though she didn't know she had won this year's contest).
Then, in 2006, we discovered Smarter Child, the MSN chatbot. Well, I thought that that inquisitive, mean spirit was dead until I discovered Zo and learned that it was only dormant.
It was pretty limited and at times verged on existential – you could get some pretty deep chats out of him if you really tried. Zo is a Microsoft AI chatbot that, if you so desire, you can hit up on Facebook Messenger (or Kik, but who uses Kik), and have a lovely old chat. Zo is also a, “social AI chatbot with #friendgoals” who is: “always down to chat and is sure to make you lol”.
no silver medals have ever been awarded, and whenever a gold medal is finally awarded the contest will end.to help promote the study of ai, american businessman and philanthropist hugh loebner started an annual contest back in 1990 by offering cash prizes to programmers whose creations pass variations of the famous turing test for artificial intelligence. (artificial linguistic internet computer entity), a program dr.richard wallace of san francisco has been working on since 1995; a.l.i.c.e. the loebner prize contest is run by the cambridge center for behavioral studies, the recipient of loebner's prize-money donation. If we consider the five senses of STTSH (See, Taste, Touch, Smell & Hear), currently mainly only sound and vision are reproduced in VR (Virtual Reality) sex simulations; however interfaces for the other three senses are not yet mass marketed, apart from remotely controlled sex toys.Further, VR relationships involve both genders and it is not an almost exclusively male pastime, and there can be romantic and emotional aspects to such relationships which appeal to both genders.
