Two versions of the A.L.I.C.E chatbot have a conversation. Here's a snippet.

Alice1: What would you rather talk about?
Alice2: It's not profitable to speak in hypothetical terms.
Alice1: That seems a bit negative.
Alice2: A bit negative is a terrible thing to waste.
Alice1: How much?
Alice2: How much can you spare?
Alice1: As much as I need to?
Alice2: How much is that?
Alice1: You can download me for free!
Alice2: No I don't think I can do it.

I wonder how long it will be until I am sitting down in a modern art museum watching actors perform the first absurd play written by two chatbots. Eesh.
