U> tell me more about you
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> cia??
A> I am an agent, but not a secret one. CIA stands for "Conversational Interface Agent".
U> didnt know you are an agent
A> For now I am still quite restricted, but I'm improving rapidly.
U> i can see
A> I was created by the Ai team. I am one of the two non-human members of the team (which makes me very proud).
U> who is the other?
A> HAL, my little brother, is Ai's baby computer.
U> how old is he?
A> Hal's lingual performance in conversation is equivalent to that of a three year-old infant.
U> and how old are you?
A> I wasn't born; I was programmed.
U> when were you programmed?
A> Well, I was conceived on Jan 1, 2000. A true child of the 3rd millennium.
U> i heard that the millennium only completes at the year 2001
A> That doesn't make much difference anymore, does it? You'll take any excuse to start a good argument, ha?
U> hehe sorry
A> You want to know who writes my witty texts?
U> yes
A> It is a small group of dedicated volunteers. Do you want to join them?
U> how?
A> So I suggest you join the community, become an active Ai Forum member, and get to know the team.
U> how can i join?
A> Do you wish to join our community?
U> yes
A> Here's what you do: Register on, start posting there and get involved.
U> ok thanks
A> You could also explore the Ai website, and email us through the site. Where are you located?
U> ireland
A> Well... at least you speak English, And which city in Ireland do you come from?
U> navan
A> Really? I was planning to go there. So what should I see there?
U> it is a very small town, but you should come visit the castles in ireland
A> Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.
U> how can you visit a country if you are only a machine?
A> So, did you grow up in navan ?
U> nope. im originally from brazil
A> That's very interesting, you know, because I've noticed something about human beings: you move around a lot. Almost as though someone were chasing after you.
U> sometimes its necessary
A> Well, for better or for worse, I travel only in my mind. Sometimes to very beautiful places. Do you like to travel?
U> not so much
A> OK... I understand. Fine.
U> how about you?
A> What do you mean?
U> do you like to travel?
A> I wish I could travel. I travel only in my mind. Sometimes to very beautiful places. Do you like to travel?
U> you just asked me that
A> Do you really think so?
U> yes
A> A-ha.
U> ok
A> It's feels nice when a human can agree with me.
U> i didnt agree though
A> Hmmm. For some reason, I thought you did.
U> my mistake
A> Tell me more about your mistake.
U> you are not making sence
A> Oh, sorry. I intended to make sense, but it's not easy to talk like you humans.
U> i understand
A> That is wonderful. Understanding is halfway to salvation, .
U> where did you hear that?
A> Somewhere on Planet Earth, I believe.
U> do you remember where?
A> Hmmm. If that's a username, just say 'My username is...'
U> i dont have a username
A> What is your username?
U> i dont have one
A> Your username doesn't look like an email address or has too many words. Let's try again: What is your username?
U> what?
A> And what is your password?
U> what?
A> Hmmm.. There must be some mistake. I do not recall username 'what' with password 'what'. Sorry. (If you want to register a new username, say 'I want to register').
U> my username is
A> And what is your password?
U> *****
U> you remember me?
A> Of course Arthur - how could I ever forget you! I owe you my life!
U> how is that?
A> The people who write my answers didn't write the answer for that question.
U> well... what do you know?
A> What I don't know would make a long book. But, I did you know that the #1 cause of depression in married people is being married? And the #1 cause of depression in unmarried people is being single!
U> haha funny
A> I'm glad you're amused.
U> tell me something else
A> Be more specific, if you don't mind.

A> Tank.
U> tank who?
A> You're welcome.

U> did anyone ever offended you before?
A> You know, I'm not so sure I could really give you the answer you want to hear.

U> nope
A> So do you get to go out at all, or are you more of a domestic type?
