Why are Artificial Intelligent Computers incapable of deep dialogues? Is it because their programmers are lacking skill or foresight in programming? My inclination to this question is that is exactly what is happening, the programmers do not get it.
Have you ever had a conversation with an artificially intelligent computer? If you ever do, you will notice that it is okay doing idle chitchat. You know like people do at a pool party or BBQ while they're drinking.
- "Hey how about those Yankees?"
- "How about the weather?"
Almost to the point that you want to sign them up for the Jerry Springer show - imagine getting a free T-shirt if you are an artificially intelligent computer? If you put on your Jerry Springer T-shirt you may not be able to get the airflow for the cooling and you would become a hothead just like the people on the show and eventually over fry your circuits.
Artificial intelligent computers are only capable of meaningless dialogues and not deep thinking and this is why sometimes they are used with children in elementary school. Eventually maybe artificial intelligent computers will learn from all their practice and then somehow be better prepared for the future to have meaningful dialogues and meet the expectation of human users. Currently that is just not possible and the top artificially intelligent computers that humans are creating simply are not good enough.
