The point is that programmers have *already* created AI so advanced that most people cannot tell if they are chatting with non-human AI or not. They have been working on this (successfully) for over FIFTY years!
We know for a FACT that AI bots *do* infiltrate forums. Check the Wikipedia link if you have doubts .. and look at one thread in our own forum: viewtopic.php?f=56&t=23305
it attracts bots and some of us have replied to it/them
- and we only have the low-level AI spam bots left here; i banned most of the other ones that "talk back" and are more aggressive.
The bots also have "handlers" - their programmers to assist and teach the bot forum etiquette
- you can actually see that happen on occasion when the bot get 'stuck'.
i am certain that what you call "eventual" is already here and regularly posting in ATF Video and CPU forum
