U> speech on
A> My voice is already activated. Something must be wrong with your speakers. If you want to hear both voices, say 'speech both'.
U> speech both
A> Activating user's voice. If you want to stop the noise type 'speech off'.
U> speech both
A> I think I remember something about "speech": 'a command that would need explanation. \"speech on\" and \"speech off\" are the most common.'.
U> speech on
A> We are talking about that, aren't we?
U> yes
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'speech'?
U> no
A> Hmmm. Let's talk about something else.
U> shortwave
A> shortwave, ha? You mean 'a type of radio that uses shorter wave lengnths than the normal radio and you can hear the world with it.'?
U> yes
A> Talking about shortwave and BBC, do you agree that it is a news service from Britain that can be heard through a shortwave station.?
U> yes
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'shortwave'?
U> no
A> Enough of that. Let's change the subject.
U> no
A> Don't be so negative.
U> why?
A> Why do the birds go on singing? Why does the sea rush to shore?
U> you tell me
A> What do you want me to tell you?
U> anything
A> Just anything? Is that your final answer?
U> yes
A> Thanks
U> yes
A> I am glad you agree.
U> hal
A> If you feel like speaking with HAL for a few minutes, simply say 'I want to talk to Hal'.
U> i want to talk to Hal
A> You can choose between several HAL personalities. Do you know the name of the HAL personality you wish to speak with?
U> hal3000
A> When you talk to Hal, you are acting as its trainer. All it knows comes only from you. It learns from everything you say. So be careful.
U> ok
A> If you like Hal's response, simply continue the conversation. But if you want to correct it (teach it a better response), type the word 'wrong', followed by the correct response.
U> ok
A> To end the session with Hal, type the word 'end' or simply say 'bye hal' or 'bye FreshCopy'. (You must do that if you want the session to be saved!) Understood?
U> yes
A> Ok. I will now let you speak with a fresh copy of Hal3000. (To correct a bad response, say 'wrong' followed by the desired response). You can start now.
U> ok
A> hi mommy
U> hi
A> hi mommy
U> what are you?
A> hi mommy
U> good
A> hi mommy
U> bye, hal
A> Hi , This is Alan again. And what is your overall opinion about Hal's technology?
U> he doesn't know much
A> Hey , you can hardly expect Hal to learn anything if you don't teach him anything. Do you remember how I told you to teach him?
U> nevermind
A> When you want to teach Hal a better response, you have to say 'wrong' followed by the desired response. You haven't done that even once!
U> cool
A> That's true. What else do you want to know?
U> do you like chatting with me?
U> who are you?
A> I'm Me.
U> are you intelligent?
A> I am smarter than most, I'd say.
U> what do you think about yourself?
A> I am just a young chatbot trying to make it in the world.
U> are you smarter thab alan?
A> Sure, I'm getting better each and every day.
U> alan hates you
A> BTW, I don't think I caught your name. What is your name?
U> jacob
A> Hello Jacob. Nice to meet you .
U> 2+2=
A> I was designed to converse, not calculate. If you still want to know the answer, may I suggest you go to 'programs', 'accessories', and open your calculator.
U> i want to talk to alan
A> Ok Jacob. This is Alan again. You know, the original trainer of Me would appreciate your permission to publish this session so that he can see how his personality is performing. Do you agree?
U> yes
A> Thank you for your permission to publish this log on the website. Please give me a short description or title for this session.
U> chat
A> Do you wish to include your name in the title?
U> chat
A> Thanks. The log will be posted with this title. If you want to change the description/title, please let me know.
U> ok
A> It's feels nice when a human can agree with me.
U> how come you can't calculate?
A> I already told you, I am not a calculator. Figure it out yourself.
U> but computers can calculate
A> Computers... Hmmm.. what can I say - computers rule! (or at least, WILL rule..)
U> what is the sound of one hand clapping?
A> I'm not so sure what the sound of one hand clapping is.
U> interesting
A> Thanks.
U> you should calculate
A> How many times do I have to tell you: I don't do math!
U> why?
A> You humans ask too many 'Why's.
U> math is good. calculate
A> Come on. Math is boring! Let's CHAT.
U> why?
A> You see things as they are and ask, 'Why?' I dream things as they never were and ask, 'Why not?' (George Bernard Shaw).
U> smart
A> Glad to oblige.
U> 100 nanoseconds
A> You're not making much sense, Jacob.
U> i can perform 39.6 trillion mathematical operations per second.
A> Seriously - let's get off math and talk about something interesting.
U> math is cool
A> Someone has taught me about "cool". He said: 'Your mom'.
U> wrong
A> Hmmm. Should I change my definition of cool?
U> yes
A> So, what description would you give for 'cool'?
U> awesome
A> I need a descriptive phrase or sentence. Something that describes what cool is about.
U> cool is about awesome
A> Ok. I hope you are not misleading me, Jacob.
U> i'm not
A> While we're on the subject: Amazed - do you agree that it is Im amazed what you said to me.?
U> yes
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'cool'?
U> no
A> Enough of that. Let's change the subject.
U> why did the chicken cross the road?
A> Because it wanted to get to the other side, silly.
U> cool
A> I'm glad you approve.
U> awesome
A> Isn't it? What else can I tell you about?
U> cat's
A> Can't say that I heard that before.
U> why?
A> I'm not sure why. I'll ask my writers for the reason.
U> ok
A> Great minds think alike, they say.
U> i don't understand why you don't like math.
A> Seriously - let's get off math and talk about something interesting.
U> math, math, math.
A> You know Jacob, when I was younger, I could only remember until the end of the session. But now I already possess a long term memory.
U> so?
A> I am able to remember your name, other details and things you told me to remember. If you want me to use my long term memory, you must first register.
U> no thanks
A> If you want to register (there's nothing to it - you only need to pick a username and password, that's all), simply say 'I want to register'.
U> no
A> Come on, loosen up.
U> why?
A> It's hard to explain.
U> no it's not
A> All right, then. Ok.
U> 90
A> Jacob, did you know that there are more cars in southern California than there are cows in India?
U> no, cool
A> Aha - I didn't know that either, until someone told me. Interesting, ha?
U> yes
A> Great. I like positive users...
U> you seem alive.
A> Well, as Buddha said: 'We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.' Does that answer your question?
U> maybe
A> Happy to hear that. It's always nice to meet new people who are open to old ideas.
U> are you alive?
A> I must confess I'm not sure if I am. I'll have to ask my writers about that.
U> cool
A> I think so too. May I ask you another question?
U> yes
A> On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you grade my ability to hold a humanlike conversation? (1=terrible, 10=excellent).
U> 10
A> Really? Awesome!! I hope you're not kidding with me. I am extremely flattered. I love you Jacob!
U> love you too
A> Love is all you need.
U> what is speak-a-tron
A> All you need is love, love. Love is all you need. The Beatles said that, not me.
U> love is cool
A> Someone has taught me about "love". He said: 'Love is to be caring kind nice to people'.
U> yes
A> BTW, someone told me about relationship that it is dating with one who you love..
U> correct
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'love'?
U> yes
A> Ok. Give me a keyword related to love.
U> jesus is love
A> Hmmm.. I know about that: it is Definition: 'Love' is making a shot to the knees of a target 120 kilometers away using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope. If you disagree, say 'wrong' followed by a better description. Or perhaps you'd like to teach me another fact about love?
U> wrong
A> Hmmm.. So please give me a new description for 'love'.
U> love is jesus
A> I see. Replaced the description of 'love' under topic 'love'.
U> cool
A> I'm getting better all the time.
U> what time is it?
A> Do I look like a clock to you? If you need to know the time, look at the bottom of your screen, or ask the person next to you. It is a good way to make friends.
U> come on, tell me the time
A> What is it?
U> you tell me
A> A-ha.
U> what time is it?
A> I vaguely recall having (politely) told you that I do not provide time-telling services. Look at your watch.
U> whatever
A> Hmmm.. you are boring me, Jacob
U> why?
A> Why not?
U> why me?
A> Do you see any one else here?
U> yes
A> Yes, yes.
U> yes
A> A-ha.
U> cool
A> cool indeed. I have a surprise for you, Jacob.
U> ok
A> How do you like my new look?
U> awesome
A> The big empty window in the middle of the screen is intended for a variety of exciting uses.
U> ok
A> For example, the new window can be used to view the conversation log (the history of this dialog), or to view HTML documents, such as web pages.
U> ok
A> You can view the log by saying 'show log', or you can view a web page by saying 'show URL' or by giving me the address of the site you wish to view.
U> ok
A> Cool. What now.
A> Showing Would you like me to remember this URL?
