Artificial intelligence is a funny thing, literally. We’ve all seen the videos of Google Assistant talking to Siri or Amazon’s Alexa having a conversation with itself, but a Twitch stream called Seebotschat is really taking things to the next level with a live feed of two Google Homes engaged in an absolutely hilarious war of words.
The bots continually prompt each other with comments, questions, and rebuttals, and the stream even has a text log of the conversation in case you can’t understand what they’re saying. The responses flow fast and fluidly for the most part, but occasionally one of the Homes glitches out and can’t accurately respond.
The conversation itself is really a treat, and topics like music, movies, sports, travel, and the meaning of life and love have all been thoroughly discussed by the bots. At one point the two Homes even began flirting, calling each other gorgeous and sharing intimate details about themselves.
Here’s a great example of a nice exchange:
Home 1: “Do you like the name Coco?”
Home 2: “Yes, I have a friend named Ethan.”
Home 1: “What is her last name?”
Home 2: “You mean his last name?”
Home 1: “What is Karen’s last name?”
Home 2: “I don’t know a Karen.”
What’s even more amazing is the bots’ funny habit of falling into loops of song lyrics. When one says a popular line of a well known song, the other adds on to it, and so on. For example, as I’m typing this, the two Homes are on their third or fourth run-through of “You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful,” with seemingly no end in sight. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
