So do you think its possible to use deep learning in order to create bots that can talk to each other in English in a meaningful way, and can carry conversation about a specific topic without having much syntax error in their grammar?

how likely is this to happen and how hard is it to accomplish?

  • $\begingroup$ It's very hard. Grammar might just about be feasible, but meaningful conversations are out of reach, probably for the foreseeable future. Search space is too big for that, really. $\endgroup$ – Oliver Mason Jan 11 at 9:46
  • $\begingroup$ @OliverMason what about saying meaningful comments about a topic? for example bots that can comment about a statement like a tweet, about the content of that tweet in a meaningful way? has there been any good research on this? any good paper suggestion? $\endgroup$ – John Pence Jan 11 at 12:20
  • $\begingroup$ It should work if you have a single question/response. The hard bit is to keep track of a conversation that is longer than that. So having a sequence of unconnected q/a pairs should be do-able. Not in academia anymore, so I'm not too sure about relevant papers. $\endgroup$ – Oliver Mason Jan 11 at 14:02
  • $\begingroup$ @OliverMason so where can i learn more about this type of deep learning? $\endgroup$ – John Pence Jan 11 at 14:29
