Would You Accept A Robot As Your Pastor, Priest Or Vicar? - With artificial intelligence and robots taking over jobs from bank teller to carpet cleaner, I decided to see whether something called the Cleverbot could take over mine. The Cleverbot is a kind of artificial intelligence application that chats with humans using sentences from previous conversations. It is the consummate copycat. I, on the other hand, am an Episcopalian priest. I teach people about faith, guide them through difficult spiritual moments and assist with sacraments. I like to think I'm irreplaceable – or, at least, irreplaceable as far as machines are concerned –but perhaps my assumption is incorrect. Let's say you wanted the Cleverbot to be your priest or pastor. How would it fare? I decided to start by asking it some basic questions about Christianity.
