so my lil' bro is playing Snake Vs. Block and they've said something interesting: that they're playing "online with some friends". The iPad doesn't have internet at the moment, though this doesn't seem to concern them. Either this game has some crazy P2P tech or it's disguising AI as real people? it's doing a good enough job to convince a 9yo that they're playing with real people. Not sure how I feel about that, really.


like, this snake game passed the 9yo Turing test. that's a weird thing and raises a good few ethical questions. I'm not sure how to tell him these "friends" aren't real
