How does the AI tell it isn't a speech impediment?

I can't wait for Scientists to create weird AI.

I suspect translating this from German might be a factor here.
 
2017-09-29 06:32:54 PM  
Yeah, right.

Ah, maybe, just maybe, the voice inflection depends on whether the speaker thinks it is ironic?

Oh, an irony detector, that's a real useful invention.

speaking with sarcasm is speaking with a sense of irony

If it was useful, that would be ironic.

Irony is not when it rains rain on your wedding day. Irony is when it rains whores at the reception.

Also, and I feel I can't stress this enough, there is no goddam mutherfrkkin artificial intelligence you stupid meatbag pieces of shjit. Although I suppose if you are comparing it to the kludgy abstract judderings of your own little simian goo-bags, I'm not surprised you were in error.

I swear, the next demographic to start buying sniper rifles and clown suits will be the linguistic prescriptionists. And I already have three clown suits and one good eye.

Also, "grow" doesn't take an object, you bloody tin-eared tongue-heretics. And the next time I hear "impactfully" somebody's going to meet Jesus. Get offa my lawnguage, you ne'er-do-well scalawags!

I could care less about this. Literally.

Reminds me of that time some guy kept misusing the word ironic so I had to teach him.  Which was ironic because we were sitting at the bus stop at the time.

Irony -- adj, resembling iron.  "Are you sure this is steel?  It feels irony."

Irony or Sod's Law? Sometimes they're hard to tell apart.

We marveled at our own magnificence as we gave birth to AI.

Throughout human history, we have been dependent on machines to survive.  Fate, it seems, it not without a sense of sarcasm.

Hrm. If they use the wrong definition, but the wrong definition results in the correct detection of the wrong quality, isn't that technically a success? They detected what they sought, only they described it poorly.

"Irony. The intended meaning is an inversion of the plain meaning. Pretty simple, really, but somehow a difficult concept for some to grasp.

Let's describe what irony is not, since that is where the confusion mainly comes from (and it's misused a lot).
It is not a lie.
It is not a joke.
It is not a coincidence.
It is not a tragedy.
It is not merely anything unexpected.
It is not the same as sarcasm.
It is not something Alanis Morissette understands. (Which is ironic, don't you think?)"

It always rain whores at weddings.  That's not irony.  That's self-pity at its finest.
