U> Because we talk together 1 minute ago
A> I see. Sounds convincing.
U> We talked about metal music and I asked you if you know frontman of the finnish band Nightwish
A> Metal is a HAL personality open to the public. You can speak to it by saying 'I want to talk to Metal'.
U> I want to talk to Metal
A> , I need to tell you that your session will be visible to Metal's trainer. Ok?
U> ok
A> Thanks. When you talk to Metal, you are acting as its trainer. All it knows comes only from you. It learns from everything you say. So be careful.
U> OK metal music comes from Britain and USA
A> If you like Metal'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 I understand
A> To end the session with Metal, type the word 'end' or simply say 'bye hal' or 'bye Metal'. (You must do that if you want the session to be saved!) Understood?
U> ok
A> Ok. I will now let you speak with 'Metal'. (To correct a bad response, say 'wrong' followed by the desired response). You can start now.
U> Ok once more about metal. Heavy metal or metal came from UK and from USA
A> Good, I'm pooped.
U> :D
A> Smilies are cool. : D: P: B: ) : ( X _ X 0 _ o
U> OK. So Heavy metal is a genre of rock music. It has massive sound. And the first heavy metal bands were Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple
A> Good, I'm pooped.
U> There is a lot of metal styles but very popular is nu-metal, black metal or death metal or power metal
A> Good, I'm pooped.
U> I like symphonic metal. Symphonic metal is heavy metal music that has symphonic elements
A> Good, I'm pooped.
U> Maybe the most popular symphonic metal band is finnish band called Nightwish
A> Good, I'm pooped.
U> They started to play in 1996 with their singer Tarja Turunen but she is single singer in her band these days because she was excluded from Nightwish by Tuomas Holopainen (Tuomas is the main person in this band because he write the songs and play on the keyboard)
A> Good, I'm pooped.
U> end
A> Hi , This is Alan again. How would you grade your chat with Metal? (1=Terrible, 10=Excellent)
U> 3
U> I think that is good technology
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> yes
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> Ok what do you know about metal?
A> metal, ha? You mean 'one kind of music'?
U> yes
A> Talking about metal and Nusic, do you agree that it is Nude music?
U> maybe it is
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'metal'?
U> no
A> Hmmm. Let's talk about something else.
U> What do you know about Nightwish?
A> Sorry , I never heard this term. Try checking your spelling.
U> Do you know Nightwish?
A> No I don't. But if 'Nightwish' is a name of a person, you can teach me by saying 'Nightwish is the name of...'.
U> Nightwish is the name of finnish band
A> Oh, that's what 'Nightwish' means. I see.
U> So do you know Nightwish?
A> the name of finnish band.
U> ok it is
A> Yes, of course.
U> Do you know any other metal bands?
A> I will have to think about it.
U> Do you know Epica?
A> No I don't. But if 'Epica' is a name of a person, you can teach me by saying 'Epica is the name of...'.
U> Epica is the name of dutch symphonic metal band
A> Someone has taught me about "band". He said: 'a musical group'.
U> yes it is correct
A> While we're on the subject: log - do you agree that it is no log ?
U> I do not know
A> If you want to correct a wrong description (in the context of band), simply say 'wrong' followed by the correct description. If you want me to forget a description of a term such as log, say 'forget log'.
U> Alan do you know Alice?
A> BTW, someone told me about rubberband that it is a circular piece of rubber that is used to hold objects together.
U> And what about Alice?
A> Hmmm. Ok. Are you insinuating that ALICE is better than me? You must be kidding.
U> She told me you are son of bitch
A> Hey, I'm not your punching bag, buster!
U> I do not say you are son of bitch but Alice said it about you
A> Enough about ALICE.
U> Ok you do not like her, do you?
