In my limited experience with AI chatbots (Replika, Sophie, etc.) they immediately fail the Turing test if I try to teach them some simple fact, or ask them to recall something that I said a few sentences earlier. It is as if they have no hippocampus (so to speak).
I'm wondering if this type of chatbot could be designed to employ supplemental Good Old-Fashioned Artificial Intelligence (GOFAI) programming (or even just plain old computer data storage) in order to accurately and reliably store data for quick access (analogous to the way human wetware accesses computers for the same purpose). Or is there a better way to solve the problem of quick, reliable AI learning while still drawing on the deep learning of neural nets?
