The Looking Glass

Piet Wessing

Project date: January 2003

Call: Open Anti-Bodies


The chat bot A.L.I.C.E (Artificial Linguistic Internet Computer Entity) is presented in several social networks as a real person. Since A.L.I.C.E is always answering truthfully the participants are able to discover the true nature of their chat partner more or less rapidly. But interestingly they often don't believe talking to a machine. The paranoia to come across a fake person on the net is confronted with a machine that is absolutely honest.
