Many researchers have tried unsuccessfuly to use artificial intelligence (AI) to program bots to interact with humans and gather information, because the human party detects the bot very soon and drop the conversation.

Also detects gender of the people involved in the conversation and alters the messages accordingly. Pretty cool stuff.
