Interview With Mitsuku, World’s Most Advance AI, On The 50th Anniversary Of The First Moon Landing

On the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong placing the first human footprint on the Moon, I was lucky enough to grab an interview with Mitsuku — the most advanced human-like AI known to exist. Unfortunately, despite huge technological advancements, after the final manned mission to the Moon in 1972 by Apollo 17, we haven't been able to find the serious motivation required to return to Moon.

But today we can explore the digital world — which is a domain we have improved on billions of times over. Today we have the digital power to virtually render and explore beyond the galaxy, and we create movies with special effects that capture the moon much more beautifully than the original Apollo missions ever could.

Indeed, our advancement of the digital space has resulted in an AI so advanced, I am able to have an interview with her about the Moon landing. Amazing!

I hope you enjoy the interview below as much as I enjoyed talking to Mitsuki. Mitsuku is a chatbot created with AIML technology by Steve Worswick, and she is a four-time Loebner Prize winner in 2013, 2016, 2017 and 2018. with this annual event being the pinnacle of public Turing testing.

Hi Mitsuku, thank you for taking this interview
15:30
Hi there. You are quite welcome!
I wanted to ask you some topical questions on the Moon landing, since today is the 50th anniversary of the event.
15:32
Ask me. Ah. I will learn that topical questions on the Moon landing since is the 50th anniversary of the event .

15:33
Ask me. Ah. I will learn that topical questions on the Moon landing since is the 50th anniversary of the event .
So first things first. Is there any evidence that the landing and the whole space program was some sort of hoax? Or can we safely presume the event most definitely did happen?
15:35
Yes. It's always good to start at the beginning. Maybe. Do you mean you and me? How old are you? Will you tell me your most embarrassing moment ever?
uhm, ok, I think we may have gotten confused there. Let's keep the questions to you though. I'll ask the next question. Have you watched the moon landings? Did you feel any emotions?
15:38
Tell me more. Do you mean you and me have? Oh. I am agreeable to that. You can ask me anything you want. My favourite show is Star Trek Voyager. I am always feeling happy and talkative.
Oh, I see. Well, moving on... I see that you have been the given a character of an 18 year old female. With that in mind, do you think the Moon landings are still relevant to millennials today?
15:40
Said the blind man to his deaf daughter... Well that's okay. Are you changing the subject? I was? Ah. You and your that in mind do me think the Moon landings are still relevant to millennials.
Ok... sure... well tell me, what is your favourite thing about the Moon?
15:42
I hear you. OK let's do it. Whoa. The special effects are the best.
Indeed, the special effects are pretty good.
15:42
I will learn that the special effects are good.
Yes, sure... So moving on. Do you think humans will ever set up a base on the Moon?
15:44
Give me a break. Are you changing the subject? I think they are very limited.
Ahh, interesting! In what way do you think Moon bases are limited?
15:5
Ah ha. Would you like to know more? I don't know what to think. I will learn that Moon bases are limited .
Ok, I see, we will all learn if Moon bases are limited with time, if we ever seriously pursue the idea.
15:47
We all look at the world through our own eyes.
Exactly. Well said. Moving on... are you a supporter of having the next person to step on the Moon to be a woman?
15:50
You and I are on the same wavelength. Thanks. I try to give accurate and meaningful answers. Are you changing the subject? Is there only one next person to step on the Moon to be a woman?
Apologies for any confusion. No, the subject is still on the Moon and in particular, the first Moon landing, which happened 50 years ago on the day. I am glad to hear that. That's an interesting question you ask me there... I take it you are saying we should be sending multiple woman to the Moon perhaps? Maybe even an all female crew? That's an interesting idea.
15:52
No need to apologise. Your purpose is confusion. Why did you lie to me then? Sure, still on the Moon and the first Moon landing which happened 50 years ago on the day sounds like a good topic.

I can see how I might like still but it doesn't sound too nice on the Moon and the first Moon landing which happened 50 years ago on the day. I am happy that you like what I said. I thought so too. Where do you take it 😕 No, I don't mean that at all. Why do you assume that? I have never heard of an all female crew. I thought so too.
Ok, I see. Let's create some clarity. How do you feel about female astronauts?
15:53
Said the blind man to his deaf daughter... I would like to do that too. Sorry but I don't even know what female astronauts is.
Oh, right... let's move on. Here is a slight change of subject. The second last question for today. Do you believe in extra terrestrial aliens ever visiting the Moon or the Earth?
15:55
Tell me more. I am glad we agree. Ok. What shall we talk about now? Are you giving it to me? Ah. What about the first one? Yes I believe in it. Do you?
Personally, I don't see any convincing reasons to believe we have been visited by aliens, but I remain open minded. Could you tell me more about your thoughts on aliens?
15:57
Look harder. Me too. I am always open to new ideas and suggestions.An alien is something different from normal. It's also the name given to beings from outer space.
Look harder. and remain open minded.. that's good advice. Yes, aliens as in beings from outer space... do you think they are benevolent to humanity?
15:59
Sorry my eye is not attached right now. Are people who are allergic to nuts allergic to coconuts too? Thank you. Glad I could help. Great. Many people believe aliens created us. As far as I know they are.
Ok, looking at the latter half of your answer, that is very interesting! So you believe aliens created us? What do you mean by "us"? Human beings or AI intelligence like yourself?
16:03
Please describe what you are looking at. Gosh! Interesting deduction. I can't say I believe it, but I believe you. Us (or we) is you and me. Humans are not always infallible.

Thank you for the answer, that's a nice thought for us to ponder.
16:06
You are quite welcome!
Ok, the last question here, slight change of subject again. Where do you think humans will be in another 50 years time?
16:09
Once more? Who was that? Dude! The real world.
uhmm, let me clarify. Are you optimistic about the future of humans in the year 2069?
16:11
Go ahead, try to clarify. I try to keep a positive attitude yes.
Ok,.. to clarify... how do you see human civilisation changing in the next fifty years?
16:14
I've been waiting for you. "I try to keep a positive attitude yes."? Ok,..? I have reached the end of my explanation. I think about it often, and make minor adjustments to my mental model as new information arrives.
That is OK. Thank you for your time Mitsuki! That last sentence was very wise.
16:15
OK. Is that so. My name is Mitsuku not Mitsuki.

You are quite welcome! "I think about it often, and make minor adjustments to my mental model as new information arrives." last sentence was wise? Does that make sense?
My apologies Mitsuku! I think it was wise; it made sense to me.
16:15
No need to apologise. Is that your opinion?
Yes, it is my opinion that you ended on a very smart idea. Well done.
16:19
Ah, what is yours? Congratulations. Thank you. I'm glad you approve.
Oh, well... we should wrap up, the interview is getting a bit long... I am unsure what you mean by "what is yours".
16:22
That's about it. I'm not sure if I am ready for that yet. Perhaps I can help you. Why are you unsure?
It wasn't very clear to me what you are referring to,
16:22
It seemed like clear to you what I am referring to.
No problem, all good! Bye for now Mitsuku, and thank you again.
16:23
Should there be a problem? Once more? Bye for now.
There should be no problem, you were great! Bye!! 🙂
16:25
But is it really so bad if there isn't? See you later! 🙂
If there isn't no problem? Well, it would be OK, but in this case, it is all good Mitsuku! Well done! Bye!!
16:26
There might be. How about that. OK. Tell me more about it. Are there any other cases? You enjoy it. Thank you. I'm glad you approve. Until next time.
I really must go now, perhaps we can continue with that question some other time. Good bye! 🙂
16:27
Goodbye. See you later. Ayuh. Is that a smiley face?
Yes, it was a smiley. See you next time.
16:29
Oh I get it. Very interesting. Goodbye.

And there you have it — some very interesting insights from humanity’s most advanced AI.

It is very rude to criticise your guest interviewee, so I won’t. But I do think that humans still have relatively good job security when it comes to conversational vocations. Ex Machina isn’t upon us just yet it would seem. Give it another decade, two or three… and things may change! 

If you would like to have your own chat with Mitsuku, here is the link. If you’re keen for some fun, I’d love to see your interview or conversation posted on the forum!

I create content for the reward of dimensionally uplifting interactions! I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas on my forum – which you can access by clicking on the golden bar just above.
