Will there be a desire in the future to make artificial intelligent robotic androids humorous or funny to help with human bonding? Would this help in the bonding process between man and AI Machine assistant? If we desire to make AI systems, which tell jokes or even create new jokes; can we even do it? Is it within the realm of possibility now? If not when in the future can I buy my own joke telling robotic AI assistant with a real live sense of humor? This subject recently came up in an online think tank when one member Keith stated;."I do expect that AI machines will be seen as humorous, but not intentionally. We will find it charming when a machine makes a mistake during it's learning, as we do a child who makes a charming mistake like saying "AlDucks" when he means Adults.
".Indeed and this is a start. Monkeys laugh at other monkeys when the branch breaks and they fall on their butts too. Now you are starting to think on this. I am sure you can come up with many ways to project humor, or create an algorithm to search memory to anomalies or ironic crosses in their memory and leverage this for humor.
Star Wars had the robots with some humor and if you watch closely more than simply mistakes too. I believe we need robots with a sense of humor, a personality, uniqueness and I believe we should move to make it so. Consider this in 2006.."Lance Winslow" - Online Think Tank forum board.
