The new site Character.AI lets users chat with authors, eminent scholars who may have contributed to their field a century ago. Users can even chat with contemporary artists and politicians.

Character.AI is a neural language model chatbox created by Noam Shazeer and Daniel De Freitas, former developers at Google's language model called LaMDa. The site was launched on September 16, last year and is based on advanced deep learning and offers users a chance to even create characters within set parameters.

Users can summon or have a fictional conversation with any great mind in history. The data for the site was derived from normal dialogues in articles, news stories, books and other digital texts. The systems included a vast collection of bots that mimic several well known personalities.

If users want to chat with philosophers they can with Socrates and Thomas Hobbes, in science the site has Albert Einstein and Marie Curie, similarly in politics users can chat with Karl Marx and Margaret Thatcher. Users can clearly see the sign "Remember: everything the character says is made up" while using the site.
