The Uncommon Descent News AI team came across this golden oldie, the Purpose of Purpose talk on YouTube, datelined Omaha, Nebraska (2009). While our Dawkinsbot was very lifelike even back then, the rant, let’s face it, is pretty dated. Which just shows how far we have come.
To recap, concerns have been raised recently that scientists are bored with and annoyed by the bot, which is bad for our strategy to discredit Darwinism. They have to actually be paying attention first!
Plus, not too long ago, the bot started melting down over nonsense retailed in the Twitterverse and we had to do an emergency rework of the politics module.
But on the whole, this old footage does show that we are making advances. We hope soon to install the bot’s Salvation Through Science modules, once we have struck the exact balance between reactions like “Oh, not this again, whatta snore” and “Look, we’re not sitting with him!.”
