Alchanand GONta are funny robots developed by a laboratory at Konan University in Japan that use an AI program to tell jokes. The joke-telling robots work together to servemanzai-style stand up comedy act from Japanese culture involving a straight man (tsukkomi) and funny man (boke) who trade jokes based on mutual understanding, gags and wordplay.
The robotic duo use AI program to search online for information on a particular theme or subject and create spontaneous comedy routines which people may find funny. Human stand-up comedians should probably not just begin to worry about their profession. (via)
