Sergey Teterin presents SMS Bots at ROBOEXOTICA 2005

Another clip from ROBOEXOTICA 2005 - russian media artist (and current SHIFZ blog - guest-blogger) Sergey Teterin and myself trying to explain the concept of chatbots using telephone-technology to text-message with the user.
And to demonstrate the training process, which quite differs from better known chatbot model Alice.

ROBOEXOTICA 2005 studio talk II

This panel is composed of organizers of robotic fetivals and events. Sergey Teterin has initiated the machinista-festival, in which machines produce art. David Calkins is the founder of Robogames and other robotic festivities in the US. Among Adrian Dabrowski's activities is helping make the RobotChallenge happen, a robot-competition which includes categories for beginners as well as more advanced challenges.
Moderated by Magnus Wurzer, who's part of SHIFZ's founding-duo of ROBOEXOTICA.


Panel with Jake Appelbaum, Francesca Birks, Kal Spelletich and Cory Doctorow. Moderated by Johannes Grenzfurthner.

We produced this roughly half-hour long studio-talk for a 4hr program on ROBOEXOTICA that "aired" on local community-(cable-)TV Okto - see also this post.

This talk is where the clip in the last post was taken from.
