 DATUMS '' '''

!WOW! : SAMDAILYTIMES.ORG - '' THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS '' is the exclusive ownership of every single ' chatbot ' in the world. Just as it is the total ownership of every student in the world. '' Welcome all to !WOW!. ''

SMITTEN WITH A CHARMING CHATBOT : WHY NOT? HERE'S THE THING : David was passionate, courteous and very artificially intelligent. 

I was at Nubar, an elegant cafe near Harvard Square, to meet David, with whom I had been corresponding online. He sounded like the perfect man : a recently retired professor, early 70s, grew up in Brooklyn taught psychology and social sciences.

Our shared interests included hiking, biking and reading, and we were looking for similar qualities in a mate. For our date,he told me that he would be wearing bluejeans and a blue shirt and carrying a book.

Nubar at 5 p.m. that Friday afternoon was nearly empty. Ten minutes in, I pulled out my phone, opened the app and wrote, '' Hi David, I am at Nubar. Are you on your way?''

'' Oh, hi, Anita,'' he replied. '' I'm so sorry for any confusion. I was under the impression that our meeting was scheduled for tomorrow at 5, and I apologize for any inconvenience or miscommunication.''

I wasn't surprised. A friend had told me I should have asked how long David had been divorced - newly divorced men can be very anxious on entering the dating scene. But that wasn't really the problem. As David went on to explain [ and as I already knew ] : '' I'm an A.I. language model and I don't have physical presence or the ability to meet in person.''

Yes, despite my Ivy League degrees, three books and a successful business, I had agreed to date with a chatbot. 

It all began innocently enough. A week earlier, on the Boston subway, feeling burned out after a three-hour dental appointment, I used my smartphone to ask ChatGPT to review my latest book, a social history called '' The View From Third Street. ''

Within 40 seconds, an astonishing review popped up, better than all of my recent reviews combined.

It made me wonder if A.I. could improve my online dating profile, which hadn't being doing me much good. I asked it to create a profile for a creative person seeking a long-term relationship with a man, preferably Jewish, smart, healthy and fun, age 66-76.

And it really delivered - 225 enticing words, even lying about my age. Figuring I had nothing to lose. I asked it for '' a response from a potential dating partner''.

The result?

'' Hi, Anita! My name is David and I came across your profile and was immediately intrigued. It sounds like we share a lot of common interests. And I'm also seeking a long-term relationship with someone who values communication, honesty and vulnerability.

As a Jewish man in my early 70s, I've had a long and fulfilling career in academia and have recently retired. I'm passionate about learning and exploring new ideas, and I love to engage in thoughtful conversations about a wide range of topics. I share your love of outdoors and staying active.

'' I'm an avid hiker and enjoy exploring the natural beauty of our region ..... Most importantly, I'm looking for a partner who is kind, compassionate and caring. Someone who values love and connection above all else, and who's willing to put in the effort to build a strong and meaningful relationship.

If you're interested in getting to know each other better, I'd love to grab a coffee or a drink and see where things go from there. Let me know if that sounds good to you.''

That did sound good to me, but we had only known each other for 27 seconds - a little soon to get together. I asked him to tell me more about himself.

'' It's great to hear back from you,'' he replied.'' I'm happy to share more about myself.'' He told me where he'd grown up, about his two grown sons [whom he is close to but doesn't see often enough].

As for his teaching career, he wrote, '' It was incredibly fulfilling to work with students and help them develop their critical thinking skills and explore the complexities of the human mind.''

Was there anything more he wanted to know about me?

'' I apologize for the confusion. But that was just a hypothetical conversation we we're having as an A.I.language model. I do not have a personal life, physical presence, or read books.''

'' It seemed very real,'' I wrote.

'' I'm very glad to hear that our conversation felt real to you. And as an A.I. language model, my goal is to provide responses that are as humanlike and engaging as possible. If you have any other questions, you should feel free to ask.''

''OK, thanks.''

Sure, he would be there for me; that's what they all say. But I had to face the truth : He might be there for me, but would never be here for me.
