The ALICE A.I. Foundation has released a demo of Three Bots Talking.
Chatbot ALICE, chatbot Fake Captain Kirk and chat bot Fake Spock chat together to generate spontaneous, interactive drama. Some of it make no sense, some of it is hilarious, but all of it is highly entertaining. You never know where the conversations is headed with these three.
If the timeline is true, this is an amaizing artistic use of Photoshop.
To me, this looks like the video is played from back to front, though (namely, starting from a photo and gradually making it more and more a sketch).
People who want by the yard, but try by the inch, should be kicked by the foot!
Nothing tastes as good as slim feels.
Nobody plans to fail, they just fail to plan.
Worry is interest paid in advance for a debt you may never owe.
Nothing shows a man’s character more than what he laughs at.

You are invited to participate in a live webcast on Octover 21, 2011 to hear an overview and update on World Community Grid’s Human Proteome Folding project. The event will be hosted by Dr. Richard Bonneau from New York University.
Since 2006, World Community Grid has had the privilege of supporting the innovative research underway at New York University to use computers to predict the structure of proteins, the “molecular machines” of the human body. Knowing protein structure is a critical step in advancing the understanding of how proteins affect human health, providing scientists with the information they need to develop new cures for human diseases.
This is the “Human Proteome Folding - Phase 2” project that many of you run every day on your laptops and PCs for World Community Grid, helping us make progress towards aiding researchers in understanding how proteins perform their intended functions and also how diseases prevent proteins from maintaining healthy cells.
The webcast will take place on October 21, 2011, starting promptly at 11:00AM Eastern Daylight Time (USA), which is 15:00 Coordinated Universal Time. Please join a few minutes early so that you’re sure not to miss anything.
Participants can listen to Dr. Bonneau while viewing an on-screen presentation. Time permitting, you will be able to ask Dr. Bonneau questions via a text chat interface.
