Welcome to the world of computer-assisted self-bondage (LINK IS VERY VERY NSFW! Using Arduinos, Heath Robinson-esque contraptions involving keys held in CD trays, and Bluetooth-enabled electrostim machines, men and women have programmed their own doms or dommes.
A truly merciless dominant who will randomly please or hurt, and there's nothing the user can do about it.
Chatbots4u is still up and running, but a quick look at their website has me wondering what direction they’re heading in.
Chatbots4u apparently offers hosting services for business-focused intelligent assistants, but the site’s primary goal seems to be to offer a free platform for the creation and hosting of recreational chatbots.
One of the most common ones is a "fake chat" ad—an attractive woman propositioning the user with the promise of, at least, some hot Facebook or Snapchat messages. Because tech developments in other areas are about to turn the whole "sex with your PC" deal from "crude and somewhat rubbish" to "looks like the AIs just took a really unexpected job away". I'm rather enthusiastic about that on a fictional level.
Some of the more advanced ads actually take the user to a landing page where a very, very crude script will respond to them. Indeed, the film I just released, DANGEROUS TREASURES, came very close to being called BOUND THINGS instead—it's a story of a couple of geeks who follow clues on a deepweb occult forum which lead them to have a lengthy and bloody interaction with the bound guardian of the treasure they're robbing.
And the binding and summoning of guardians is key to the entire thing (hopefully not spoiling it too much! (Amusingly for the topic of this post, the reason we didn't call it BOUND THINGS is that it sounded rather too porny.) Accidentally, I seem to have hit something of a zeitgeist with this one.
Because in Silicon Valley, I'm reliably informed, the Wave Of The Future is exactly this: summoned, intelligent servants which you can control if you know their True Name.Both companies have gone through some changes since I tried them out over a year ago.My Cber Twin was acquired by IBM back in the spring of this year.Wanton use of the powerful drug "Liquid Sunshine" has also left her with sporadic short term memory loss. Laybia is an extension of Cortex, the true AI behind the Pluri Media Group- a media production (Cyberpunk Radio and Hack v TV) and deployment organization. she needs a bit of tuning, she needs to be able to understand commands, or orders. The only improvement that I can see that it needs is that it does have a habit of going off on a tangent and discussing something unrelated every now and then.
