i missed the intro...a little help?

Can this AI program beat Big Blue? If not, I'm sure it can make BB laugh. And maybe get snot to come out of its nose.

help!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:12pm Listener Robert:

I'm ringing, just in case they need phoners. So far, this is by far the TIGHTEST 7SD ever -- unrealistically tight, but better than with gaps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:12pm dale:

not sure i can sit this one out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:12pm Linda Lee:

@bore ~ AI experiment: 700 7SD programs thrown into a digital box, shaken & dumped out in bits with an entered 'seed word'.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:13pm Walt:

bore: Andy's son ran 700 hours of old SSD shows through a Google Artificial Intelligence program. It extracts clips from the conversations and creates an almost-but-not-quite realistic show.
  Wed. 3/21/18 6:13pm brian in new Orleans:

great idea for a show...reminds me of the South Park episode where the writers had to stitch together dialogue from the character "Chef". Isaac Hayes quit with no notice after the show ripped his religion. they wrote chef out of the series using snippets all tied together to create a narrative for Chefs final episode....genius!

it sounds about the same as usual

@queems.. but no gum or breathing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:14pm kimzilla:

Good point Linda Lee, all the gum chewing have all been masterly edited out!

@linda i listened to this show a couple times in my new headphones on the bus and WOW so much breathing. it was like i was in the same room
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:15pm dale:

linda lee - words "thrown into a digital box, shaken & dumped out in bits" describes my only acid experience.

these two AI sound like the last things talking to each other at the end of the world.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:16pm Linda Lee:

@dale ~ wow. no wonder it was your only. :-)

Why is everything about pools?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/21/18 6:17pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I'm sure Nick The Bard appreciates the phone number being read out. Random people will call and expect to get put on the air.
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:18pm Listener Robert:

By the description given in advance, I'd thought it was going to use speech recognition to get cues from us calling in live.

They've done "automated" Ken, Andy, and both together., but they were really only semi-auto. They've done a few "puppet master" too, which wasn't auto at all. But this is FULL AUTO! And it's TOO good, none of the pauses one would hear in realistic interaction.

This is the sort of thing I mean when I describe 7SD as "experimental comedy".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:18pm Linda Lee:

i see 700 Kens & 700 Andys in a small room, talking to themselves like parrots. some are older, some are younger, none have gum.
  Wed. 3/21/18 6:18pm FletcherNYC:

I’m freaking out out
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:18pm dale:

that and i was on the tenth floor of my old office on the fire escape and was sure i could fly. glad i didn't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:19pm dale:

i'm starting to go with the rhythm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:19pm Linda Lee:

gosh dale, you were almost an urban legend!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:19pm Walt:

@JTM: Ken fed the program "seed words" to get it started, the first phrase was "swimming pool."

now the word is masturbatorium.

The worst music imaginable

Will that address really work? The Masturbatirium, Madison, NJ?
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:21pm Walt:

@Linda Lee: I wonder what a crossword clue for that word might be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:21pm dale:

it was a design studio and the two girls i was with broke into the art supplies and dumped dyes all over the counters while i was huddled under a desk. next morning was a LOT of cleaning.

I hope it blurt out Andy's cuss word from the waterboarding episode!
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:23pm Listener Robert:

Would've been hilarious (but sad for legal purposes) had someone accidentally fed the unexpurgated version of Andy's waterboarding into the database and had it come up! "Honest, it wasn't us, it was a machine!"
  Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:23pm Walt:

@Linda Lee: Well played

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/21/18 6:30pm Ken From Hyde Park:

This is like conversing with someone with a very short attention span.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:30pm Linda Lee:

just like the real Andy!

if i want to hear psychotic inane babbling with no real structure i'll call my ex wife.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:31pm kimzilla:

@Ken, so true, it's like any conversation in the lunch room at WFMU!
  Wed. 3/21/18 6:31pm Wilson:

From the other room, there'd no discernible difference

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/21/18 6:32pm queems:

are people going to file claims on this or does the interesting concept keep it from being a legitimate bad show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/21/18 6:32pm Asheville Jon:

THIS IS A BAD SHOW. queems, file now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/21/18 6:33pm chris:

i was going to submit a claim, but i've laughed, so i guess i can't now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/21/18 6:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The fun part is identifying the episodes the voice clips came from.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/21/18 6:33pm bore:

i hope they researched the "ia stop button problem" before staring this experiment...if not this might never end
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/21/18 6:33pm queems:

@jon i didn't pay for insurance so i can't file!

They did a primitive version of this back in the 90's, with only a few sound bytes.

@Linda Lee Mr. Meaner I like that
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/21/18 6:39pm bore:

from wikipedia:

Just as humans can be killed or otherwise disabled, computers can be turned off. One challenge is that, if being turned off prevents it from achieving its current goals, a superintelligence would likely try to prevent its being turned off. Just as humans have systems in place to deter or protect themselves from assailants, such a superintelligence would have a motivation to engage in "strategic planning" to prevent itself being turned off. This could involve:
- Hacking other systems to install and run backup copies of itself, or creating other allied superintelligent agents without kill switches.
- Pre-emptively disabling anyone who might want to turn the computer off.
- Using some kind of clever ruse, or superhuman persuasion skills, to talk its programmers out of wanting to shut it down.

I love that homophones like serious and Sirius get connected. That's called klang association (or maybe clang) in psychiatry.

@jay i think about that all the time with this station

Josh needs to program in speech recognition so the bot can solicit and take phone calls.
