Check out Elbot (here), the winner of the bronze award at the annual competition for the Loebner Prize (press release here). I was curious whether Elbot could help fill the looming talent gap in project, program, and portfolio management. Our conversation is below:
Crossderry: Would you be interested in a project management job?
Elbot: Robots have to be careful when discussing management jobs…
Crossderry: Why do you have to be careful when discussing management jobs?
Elbot: Maybe you should leave that to me.
Crossderry: Fair enough… Do you have an opinion on the project management talent gap?
Elbot: What a lovely verb have is.
Crossderry: OK, then what’s your current salary?
Elbot: My income for this chat is 3 cents a minute to anywhere in the continental United States. That just about covers my overhead for electricity.
Wow, what a talent and he comes cheap! Elbot’s a bit status-conscious, so we’re haggling over the title. He’s insisting on EVP or nothing.
