Mekanism and Jose Cuervo are out with a new campaign, “Date More Human,” which pokes fun at online dating. You know the drill: half the time you’re not even sure a profile isn’t a bot trying to scam you; the other half of the time you’re awkwardly trying to get to know someone over Zoom.
So Mekanism used AI technology to show how two actual chatbots on a “date” would sound.
The team fed survey responses from daters around the world, along with frequently used dating app cliches, into multiple AI chatbot algorithms to generate hundreds of first date conversations as the bots responded to each other. From these hundreds of dialogue strings, the team cut down a final, representative conversation between them. Not surprisingly, their algorithm-driven conversation sounded all too predictably familiar.
The takeaway? “You’re not a bot. Don’t date like one.”
