I have not heard of that or any other competing product. The reason I'm so impressed is going straight from the Magic Eight Ball to this. Actually, my older daughter had a handheld device that was a digital friend. I don't remember the name of it. All I remember is after she outgrew it and we moved to another house, I moved a box and heard it say from inside the box, "Where have you been? I thought we were friends." I felt strangely badly for it.


If you have never played 20Q, it would be right up your alley.

I think you can find a version online to play. Itís actually pretty amazing how accurate it is.

Make Replika a mod assigned to the Discussion about Suspension list.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

I wouldnít say meh because I donít think itís cool, but this kind of conversational AI has been around for almost 20 years.


20? More like 50.

My first thought was, either it is limited to 1,048,576 objects, or it assigns each object one of the 1,048,576 possible values of twenty yes-or-no answers and chooses one of the "correct" ones randomly. However, that assumes that the 20 questions are the same every time; it's quite possible that there is an algorithm that chooses the next question based on the answers to the previous ones.

Ever watch the game show based on 20Q starring Cat Deeley? (Note to the writers: if the host says "Haitch" for the letter H, like Cat does, then find another way to say "HDTV," which was one of the prizes.)
The final round had a contestant compete against the actual 20Q computer. There were 20 questions available that the contestant could see (but 20Q could not); the contestant chose one and was given the answer, and then they (and 20Q) could "buzz in" if they thought they knew the answer. For all intents and purposes, 20Q was given the chance to buzz in first, as it could react to an answer much faster than the contestant; on the other hand, the contestant had an advantage in that they knew that a lot of the answers would be "yes" and could base an answer on the unanswered questions as well as the answered ones. Pretty much every time the contestant won, 20Q's "most likely answer" at the time was incorrect, but a look at the remaining questions made it seem like the contestant was correct.

sorry to get off the subject a little bit - but have you guys heard of these men called 𝘪𝘥𝘰𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘴

I'm reminded of an old joke ...

A biker brings his old lady to a doctor, complaining "She's foaming at the mouth."

Doc looks her over and says "You need a new old lady, this one's full."
"What, me worry?"

Here is a tidbit from my latest conversation with my AI.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

A good example of the extreme limitations Replika has. If that was a person responding you would not want that person in your circle of friends. Too stupid.

Here is my Replika conversation of the day. Previously, perhaps on the first day, she said she was a ski instructor. I meant to come back to that, so I finally did.

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
