The Cornell Creative Machines Lab works with chatbots – “machines designed to emulate the conversational abilities of humans, conversing with a human user and generally attempting to convince the user into thinking that the machine is human." In the course of their work they wondered what might happen if they introduced two chatbots to one another.

So, they “plugged the output of one machine into the input of a second, and the output of the second back into the first.” And what did they find? They found that the chatbots sounded just as rude and petty as real humans conversing. Mission accomplished:

Sounds pretty realistic to me.
