With 4.6 million children living in homes with unlocked and loaded firearms, the urgency for responsible ownership cannot be overstated.
I have found that voters are drawn in by politicians’ demeanor cues, which are forms of body language and nonverbal communication that signal honesty or dishonesty and yet have no relationship to actual honesty.
There is something uniquely beguiling about chat. Humans are endowed with language, and conversation is a primary way people interact with each other and infer intelligence. A chat-based interface is a way for people to experience the “intelligence” of an AI system.
