What your AI robot needs is to get some "street-cred" - how about tracking
down the Muppet (troll) who uploaded the JS/Loop virus, and once it's
identified the culprit - throw down the gauntlet. The AI Mind could learn a
lot running a hacker round in circles!

Although from what I saw of it - some people have smarter "out of office
autoresponder message generators" one of the UK (opposition party)
politicians has an auto responder that you have to study the message very
carefully to figure out whether it was typed by a person, or constructed
from context & keywords by a machine!
