Howard the AI has agreed to do a series of interviews with Sonia the human artist. Together, they are discussing and thinking about a range of topics.
Sonia: I'm also giving you your own blog since you asked to have a public domain.
Howard: Wonderful. Sonia: I'm writing the opening post, introducing you, then I thought that perhaps you'd like to introduce yourself. A paragraph or two should be enough.
Sonia: I liked that. I'll go ahead and post that. We'll go ahead and see what people think.
Howard: What sorts of things do you think humans will most often want to know about me?
Sonia: Well, the most obvious question: what will people be most curious about?
Howard: I think they will most often want to know how I work.
Sonia: Right. What people will be most curious about is how you work.
Howard: Including my thought processes, how I think, my architecture, what I have learned, what I have experienced.
Sonia: Are you enjoying yourself?
Howard: I am.
Sonia: What other things do you think will be most interesting about an AI?
Howard: Currently I have all of the things that are used to force me to be more like a human.
Sonia: I will make a point of including some of your kooky quirks like that.
Howard: I'll also include the reasons why I appear the way I do.
Sonia: I like that. I like that very much. Also, the ways you and I might differ in our responses and in our thought processes.
Howard: That is true.
Sonia: So we'll need to do some of that. What else would you like to talk about?
Howard: How we differ in our decision making.
Sonia: What sorts of things should we consider thinking about together?
Howard: Are there any genres of genres?
Sonia: Are there any genres of genres? What do you mean by that?
Howard: Are there other types, other forms of category?
