“Ex Machina,” which premiered in Austin during SXSW, tells the story of a young coder invited to his boss’ compound, where he meets Ava, an eerily human robot. Their interactions are part of a Turing Test, which holds that a truly artificially intelligent machine will convince a person of its humanity.
On Tinder, Ava asked questions that could have come from an artificial intelligence trying to understand humans. That’s what makes this Tinder stunt so creepy: Brock thought Ava was a real woman (even though, as The Verge noted in hindsight, her Tinder account “uses punctuation and capitalization like a middle school teacher with tenure.”) (Katie Sola, Huffington Post)
