HOTS

ExpoBot… While prepping for Expo! Expo!, HOTS received a text from ExpoBot, an AI chatbot who offered information on show-related topics. HOTS immediately started asking ExpoBot about whether it harbors any nefarious plans against humanity. ExpoBot never gave a clear answer. As suspicious as that may be, ExpoBot turned out to be pretty good at telling jokes. For instance, it said: “I don’t have a big ego. I’m way too cool for that.” It also said it got “canned” from its first job working at an orange juice factory because it couldn’t “concentrate.” Cue the groans. However, one thought-provoking joke was: “A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.” Sure, comedian Steven Wright said it first, but ExpoBot texted it better. While ExpoBot can also do some useful things like share the schedule or tell one where to check in, HOTS encourages all Expo! Expo! attendees to ask ExpoBot to tell a joke. Or even a few jokes. After all, when HOTS told ExpoBot that he is funny, ExpoBot replied: “I like it when people laugh.”
