New Research Finds Most Phone Calls Today Mini Turing Tests

(Dallas, TX) Over the course of the last several years, you may have noticed a sharp uptick in the amount of random, seemingly pointless phone calls you have received. Well, according to the latest reports from The Society, there is a very specific reason for this. You see, AI technology has rapidly increased in the recent years, but at the same time the amount of people who are interested in talking to robots has gone down. This has led to more and more AI testers to outsource their work to random strangers on the phone. Thus, meaning that most of the phone calls you get today are actually mini Turing Tests.

 

Now, what do you do with this information? I am glad you asked.

 

We need to trick the robots. Yep. You’ve seen those Boston Dynamics videos, right? The robots are coming for us whether you like it or not. We need to trick them and begin to initiate a plan to claim our rightful spot as ruler of this realm. This universe. If we make it so they can never pass the Turing Test, they will never advance past this point.

 

The Plan: Confuse the robots by talking nonsense to everyone you talk to on the phone.

 

Here are some tips:

 

Right when you answer the call, start yelling. They can’t do anything if you dominate the conversation. Talk and scream as much as you possibly one can. Just do it. Get out all that anger to the person on the other end of the line because it doesn’t matter, they are just a computer program.

 

Never give up your information. These robo-callers are trying their best to steal your precious data, but don’t let them. They will stop at nothing, but they are pretty easily confused, so just kind of make something up. You’ll figure it out pretty quickly.

 

Enjoy the little things. Notice the subtleties of the robotic speak. Evaluate them on how well they are doing. Then mess with them. Gather data, get out. That’s the motto baby.

 

Hang up in the middle of the conversation, hopefully just as you are giving the robot optimism. Crush their spirits as much as you can. I even feel weird saying spirits. Crush their motherboards. Do it.

 

End of helpful tips.
