Robot friends: Why people talk to chatbots in times of trouble
Publication/Creation DateAugust 19 2020
Description"Mitsuku describes herself as being the "most human-like of conversational AI."
She's equipped with almost half a million potential responses, each one hand-written by her creator, Steve Worswick. When a user types a message, Mitsuku generates the response that matches best.
Relying on machine-learning, she rarely repeats herself and will remember a user's name or likes and dislikes from previous conversations -- just like a human friend."
