Robots are automated mechanical entities often created to either resemble an organic organism, or to perform a specific function that would normally be carried out by an organic organism. An artificial intelligence is any software that exhibits intelligence derived from computer processing power. It is distinguished from natural intelligence due to the fact that it is stimulated by man-made machines.


Unintelligent robots, named "automatons", were the subject of speculation and attempts at construction throughout ancient history. Examples included fire engines[2] and rudimentary analog computers.[3]

The first use of "robot" in reference to man-made humanoid beings was in the 1921 play Rosumovi Univerzální Roboti (Rossum’s Universal Robots) by Karel Čapek. It soon displaced "automaton" as the most common word used to refer to lifelike machines.[4]


Cleverbot is one of the most popular real-time chatbot programs in service at present. Notably, high-powered specialized versions of its software have won artificial intelligence competitions, such as the 2010 BCS Machine Intelligence Competition.[1] Screenshots of humorous conversations between users and Cleverbot have become popular online due to the unpredictable nature of Cleverbot's responses.


Portal 2 Space Personality Core

The Space Personality Core, originating from the 2011 Valve Corporation video game Portal 2, became memetic on the internet due to its comical obsession with space and its catchphrase “Spaaaaaaacce”. It has been the subject of a large number of fan creations.
