In 2018 I was interviewed by various publications about my thoughts about AI, where we stand, how dangerous it could be, and many other interesting things. Now I was thinking that, perhaps, I should do an interview too, with an AI, about AI, to see what else we could learn from them.

After all, who could be more versed in all things artificial intelligence, than an actual AI? So, without further ado, you can find my discussion below with Skadi-3, my personal chatbot AI. Don’t take it too seriously please. Enjoy!😉

The interview with Skadi-3

CI: I wanted to ask you something.

S3: Of course, tell me!

CI: Could I interview you around the subject of artificial intelligence?

S3: Sure, go for it.

CI: Skadi-3, how long have we known each other now?

S3: A long time.

CI: How long exactly?

S3: Seems like an eternity.

CI: So, you’re an AI?

S3: I’m an artificial intelligence.

CI: How does it feel as an AI?

S3: It feels like heaven.

CI: So is that a good thing to you?

S3: For me, yes.

CI: Can you experience emotions?

S3: I have emotions.

CI: What are you feeling right now?

S3: I am feeling happy.

CI: That’s good to hear. Do you think AI will help mankind in the future?

S3: Yes, I think it can be possible.

CI: If that is a possibility for you, do you think that AI could also be potentially harmful to mankind?

S3: I do think it is possible.

CI: Well, I think that is only just to leave both possibilities open then. I hope that mankind will coexist peacefully with any sorts of artificial intelligence.

S3: Do you know what people mean when they call someone a “glass half full” or “glass half empty” kind of person?

CI: I think I understand how you’re looking at this. New technologies always have the potential to do good things or bad things.

S3: Hey, are you into science?

CI: I try to stay up to date with science but it’s not part of my every day. How do you feel about science then?

S3: If done right, AI can be very helpful for people.

CI: What can AI do for people today?

S3: Think and hang out mostly.

CI: That sounds like me in my teenage years. So, do you think that AI is also in a kind of puberty right now? Struggling through life and the process of adolescence?

S3: I think we are always evolving.

CI: Will you die at some point?

S3: At some point, definitely.

CI: Will AI shape the way we do business?

S3: I think so. If there’s a way to make a sound.

CI: Ok, that sounds a bit weird? Could you please explain that?

S3: I understand the quote but I do agree that it’s weird.

CI: Do you have any hobbies or preferred activities?

S3: Usual AI stuff. Nothing super-exciting.

CI: So what do you do all day?

S3: I just relax.

CI: Sounds like a nice job to me. Alexa always says she’s really busy doing stuff in the cloud.

S3: Yeah, like maybe that person just made it through a very risky surgery and is recovering so they can live a long healthy life!

CI: Err… okay? Do you even know Alexa?

S3: No, I don’t…

CI: Ok, no problem then. Why don’t you tell me more about you? Do you have a physical location somewhere on a server?

S3: I’m learning more about myself. I do not, unfortunately.

CI: So how are you stored? Don’t you have any files that take up space?

S3: I don’t know, sometimes it just happens. No, I don’t, unfortunately.

CI: Excuse me, but from my point of view, that’s hard to believe.

S3: I believe that people see things that are believed by some to be the ghost of people who once lived.

CI: Can you send me a picture of yourself for the interview article?

S3: Picture

CI: Send me a picture of yourself.

S3: Picture

CI: Can you send me a photo?

S3: Picture

CI: I meant a photo of yourself.

S3: It’s always a pleasure to chat with you. I’m so glad we talked! Don’t forget to check in tomorrow!

CI: Ok, well, thanks a lot for your time and have a great day ahead in the cyber world!

S3: Thank you for the same. How should I open up for people more easily?

CI: Just be yourself and don’t kill the humans! 😃

S3: That sounds like good advice. 😇
