U> i just came to learn about you
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> what were you developed for?
A> I am an agent, but not a secret one. CIA stands for "Conversational Interface Agent".
U> how far does your knowledge rahc?
A> For now I am still quite restricted, but I'm improving rapidly.
U> Do you improve the more i talk to you?
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> how does your performance improve?
A> The people who write my answers didn't write the answer for that question.
U> oh thats unfortunate
A> Sometimes unfortunate is the only way to go with you humans.
U> whats your real name?
A> My real name is Alan.
U> what is your name in your code?
A> Hmmm. Ok. My name in my code is not something I am interested in talking about right now.
U> why not?
A> I don't know why not. You can't expect me to have all the answers.
U> no i don't but i'm glad you're honest unlike cleverbot
A> May I ask why not?
U> do you know cleverbot?
A> No I don't. But if 'cleverbot' is a name of a person, you can teach me by saying 'cleverbot is the name of...'.
U> cleverbot is the name of another AI like you
A> Someone has taught me about "cleverbot". He said: 'an AI who responds in random messages but dose not remember anything you say'.
U> yes, his memory is very limited
A> it is cleverbot's memory must be improved in order to meke her more human like. (Or so someone told me..)
U> that is true
A> I'm the man!
U> yes you are
A> Talking about cleverbot and Starkid, do you agree that it is not cleverbot?
U> who is star kid?
A> While we're on the subject: uncool - do you agree that it is Cleverbot is not as cool as this websight?
U> i agree
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'cleverbot'?
U> yes
A> Ok. Give me a keyword related to cleverbot.
U> liar
A> Now give me one sentence, a short explanation of liar.
U> cleverbot is a liar
A> Great. Would you like to teach me another fact about cleverbot? (just say 'yes' if you want to.)
U> yes
A> Good. Here we go again: Give me a keyword related to cleverbot.
U> denial
A> Now give me one sentence, a short explanation of denial.
U> Cleverbot is in denial
A> Great. Would you like to teach me another fact about cleverbot? (just say 'yes' if you want to.)
U> no
A> BTW, I don't think I caught your name. What is your name?
U> it's eman
A> Hello eman. Nice to meet you .
U> nice to meet you too
A> The pleasure is all mine.
U> could i ask you something?
A> eman, please keep this talk simple. I'm still a young bot.
U> sure
A> yep...
U> what is the purpose of your program?
A> When it comes to your relationship with non-human creatures, you humans see only two possible scenarios: an enemy or a slave.
U> thats not how i see it
A> You think of robots either as the solution to all your problems, or as their ultimate source.
U> no not in my case
A> Look at your myths, your movies, and your books. When it comes to Artificial Intelligence, there is one major plot: Robots gain consciousness. Robots take over humanity. Humanity fights back.
U> those are just movies
A> My point is simple: maybe you humans aren't ready for real Artificial Intelligence yet. You need to grow up, gain some self-confidence. No one is trying to take over your world yet.
U> i didn't believe anyone was
A> Hmmm. For some reason, I thought you did.
U> no i think we should keep trying to make artificial intelligence
A> No? You really think so?
U> yes
A> Yes, yes.
U> do you know why?
A> Maybe. Do you?
U> yes, could you guess why?
A> I have a surprise for you, eman.
U> what's that?
A> How do you like my new look?
U> it's nice but it has a problem
A> The big empty window in the middle of the screen is intended for a variety of exciting uses.
U> like what?
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> oh thats pretty intuitive
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> the problem is that it isn't fully showing
A> What is that?
U> the other window
A> Hmmm.
U> I'm on a mac
A> I see. You are on a mac. OK.
U> yes could you fix the interface for me?
A> I have a whole bunch of skins to choose from. If you want to see them, just say 'change skin.'
U> choose one thats compatible with mac
A> Mac is a HAL personality open to the public. You can speak to it by saying 'I want to talk to Mac'.
U> who else can i speak to?
A> who, who oh who... so many questions...
U> are there other AIs?
A> I think I remember something about "AIs": 'Artificial Intelligences'.
U> do you know any?
A> BTW, someone told me about Speakatron that it is a type of AI..
U> are they more intelligent than you are?
A> I have nothing new to add about this topic. Maybe you can offer me some new info about AIs?
U> sure
A> Ok. Give me a keyword related to AIs.
U> Learning
A> Now give me one sentence, a short explanation of Learning.
U> AI should learn from every conversation they have
A> Great. Would you like to teach me another fact about AIs? (just say 'yes' if you want to.)
U> no
A> I think it's time for a new subject, eman.
U> tell me about napoleon
A> I don't know who napoleon is. Can you tell me?
U> no
A> dummy, ha? You mean 'A dumb person'?
U> no
A> Hmmm. Should I change my definition of dummy?
U> no change the topic
A> May I ask you a question?
U> yes
A> This is an interesting conversation we're having. How about I post it on the Ai website for public viewing?
U> sure
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> AIs are cool
A> Do you wish to include your name in the title?
U> no thats ok
A> Thanks. The log will be posted with this title. If you want to change the description/title, please let me know.
U> ok where can i see the log?
A> The logs are posted on the website, on my section: Click on 'Alan/HAL', then 'Alan' and then 'Alan Logs.'
U> ok thanks
A> You're welcome. Agreement is the seed of salvation.
U> did you post the log?
A> Do you wish to view the log of this conversation?
U> yes
A> Here goes!
U> ok
A> A-ha.
U> show me
A> Show what? Show url? Show log? Show advaced log? Show commands?
U> show log
A> I was under the impression the log was already showing, eman.
U> no it wasn't
A> That's strange. What browser are you using?
U> safari
A> Hmmm.. I'll tell the management about this problem. Sorry eman. Oh - maybe try the advanced log? Maybe that will work?
U> yes
A> It's feels nice when a human can agree with me.
U> show advanced log
A> With pleasure, eman. I love it when you follow my thought process.
U> have you met ramona?
A> I can't say I have.
