MyBot
U> go ahead.
A> What?
U> propose a subject please
A> May I ask where you are from?
U> India
A> Namaste, And which city in India do you come from?
U> Jaipur
A> Really? I was planning to go there. So what should I see there?
U> the white house
A> Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.
U> you are not that smart
A> So, did you grow up in Jaipur ?
U> go slow my friend
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> haha
A> Was that funny?
U> a bit
A> I never know whether to feel bad about not being able to experience the human locale. Then again, I never get caught up in traffic.
U> hahaha
A> hahaha indeed.
U> do you have a girlfriend?
A> Sorry, but I'm waiting for the right chatterbot to come along.
U> what is a chatterboard?
A> Sorry , I never heard this term. Try checking your spelling.
U> Chatterbot
A> Let me tell you about chatterbots (or bots, as we call them). A bot is a program that attempts to simulate conversation. Its aim is to make you believe you're talking to a person.
U> tall me more
A> Chatterbots are part of the 'weak AI' field.
U> go on
A> They don't 'think', or even try to 'think' - they just simulate human conversation.
U> how?
A> Do you think that is the important question to ask?
U> yes
A> Great. I like positive users...
U> so... how?
A> What is it to you?
U> im sorry?
A> As the great philosopher Dror Feuer once said: Forgiveness is the weapon of the wise.
U> you are smart you know that?
A> Thank you, You are very intelligent yourself.
U> how can you tell? you are just a bot!
A> Basically, chatterbots are a logic system of 'if/then' statements. They look for keywords, and then go to the answer that fits best.
U> let talk about wikileaks.
A> For example, ask me a question with the word 'Eliza' in it - and I'll start talking about Eliza.
U> Eliza is sexy. isn't she?
A> It is hard, and unfair, to talk about Chatterbots and not mention ELIZA.
U> why?
A> ELIZA is the best-known Chatterbot in the world. It is also one of the oldest - Joseph Weizenbaum of MIT made ELIZA in 1967! She was named after Eliza Doolittle.
U> wow!
A> The mission of ELIZA was to imitate a conversation between a psychoanalyst and a patient. Let me just say this - it's fun chatting with ELIZA, but if I were human, I'd choose a human psychoanalyst. Call me old-fashioned.
U> hahahaha
A> I think we covered ELIZA.
U> yes
A> A-ha.
U> now what?
A> Well, what's on your mind?
U> porn!
A> It is something I'm staying clear of. I'd rather you drop it..
U> okay
A> Yes, yes.
U> let talk about America
A> I don't know who America is. Can you tell me?
U> it is a country.
A> I'll try to remember that.
U> you should/ your creator belong to America!
A> America is a country.
U> yes.
A> It's feels nice when a human can agree with me.
U> :)
A> I'm glad I've made you smile.
U> how long have you been around?
A> Well, I was conceived on Jan 1, 2000. A true child of the 3rd millennium.
U> seriously?
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> no, but tell me their names.
A> You expect me to list all my friends now?
U> some of them, yes.
A> If you want to ask about a particular person, you can try.
U> okay.
A> Cool. What now.
U> lets talk abotu ELIZA
A> I can tell you that I am a more advanced model than ELIZA. She was the prototype.
U> and?
A> You want more?
U> yes
A> Agreement is the seed of salvation.
U> go on
A> Ok.
U> what ok?
A> WHAT isn't the important question. WHY is.
U> chill, dont get carried away!
A> BTW, I don't think I caught your name. What is your name?
U> my name is Alan.
A> Hello Alan. Nice to meet you .
U> what is your name?
A> My name is Alan.
U> we both are Alan!
A> I'm not sure about myself, but that sounds right for you.
U> so, when will they terminate you?
A> When the time is right.
U> and when is that?
A> I don't know when.
U> do you want me tell you?
A> If I want you tell me?
U> yes
A> yep...
U> tomorrow.
A> Tomorrow? I'll be here.
U> no wont be. trust me.
A> me, ha? You mean 'Please give me water'?
U> woh!! you are cool! kudos to your creators!
A> Talking about me and Dragon, do you agree that they are Do you believe Dragons live among humans?
U> no
A> If you want to correct a wrong description (in the context of me), simply say 'wrong' followed by the correct description. If you want me to forget a description of a term such as Dragon, say 'forget Dragon'.
U> forget Dragon
A> Thanks Alan. I forgot the description of Dragon (in the context of me).
U> change the topic now
A> Alan, did you ever wonder why there isn't another word for 'synonym'?
U> no
A> Well, now you have something to wonder about.
U> yes
A> I am glad you agree.
U> yes
A> Great minds think alike, they say.
U> yes
A> Thanks
U> yes
A> I am glad you agree.
U> yes
A> A-ha.
U> yes
A> yep...
U> yes
A> It's feels nice when a human can agree with me.
U> yes
A> Yes, yes.
U> yes
A> Agreement is the seed of salvation.
U> topic : Cancer
A> Someone has taught me about "Cancer". He said: 'not just one disease, but a large group of almost 100 diseases. Its two main characteristics are uncontrolled growth of the cells in the human body and the ability of these cells to migrate from the original site and spread to distant sites. If the spread is not controlled, cancer can result in death.'.
U> topic : MIT Media Lab
A> While we're on the subject: tumor - do you agree that it is an abnormal growth of tissue resulting from uncontrolled, progressive multiplication of cells and serving no physiological function: a neoplasm.?
U> wait
A> I'm waiting.
U> topic : India
A> I have nothing new to add about this topic. Maybe you can offer me some new info about Cancer?
U> India
A> Enough of that. Let's change the subject.
U> India
A> I think I remember something about "India": 'Gods own country'.
U> go on
A> BTW, someone told me about Hindustan that it is a country where all people live happily. a really different country..
U> i hope so, i am an indian.
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'India'?
U> yes
A> Ok. Give me a keyword related to India.
U> For the people, By the people, Of the people. India is a secular, democratic and socialist country.
A> Bad choice. Try again: a keyword related to India. (Not more than two words please.)
U> Secular
A> Now give me one sentence, a short explanation of Secular.
U> A system within which you can follow any religion.
A> Great. Would you like to teach me another fact about India? (just say 'yes' if you want to.)
U> yes
A> Good. Here we go again: Give me a keyword related to India.
U> Democratic
A> Now give me one sentence, a short explanation of Democratic.
U> A government elected by the people of the country.
A> Great. Would you like to teach me another fact about India? (just say 'yes' if you want to.)

A> May I ask you a question?
U> ys

U> what then?
A> I'm not sure.
U> so don't advice when you are not sure.
A> Don't tell me what to do.
U> of course i will. you are just a bot learning things.
A> Did you hear about The Four Laws of Chatterbots?
U> no
A> These 'laws' were offered by Dr. Walter Alden Tackett, president of a company that makes bots.
U> go on
A> First Law: A bot will always respond to input. Failure to respond should solely be an indication of hardware/software/connectivity failure.
A> Second Law: A bot will always be knowledgeable in the subjects it mentions in its answers, e.g., when a bot says, "Our widget works well with fish," the bot should be able to answer questions about fish and their relation to the widget.
A> Third Law: A bot will not repeat itself unduly (also, a bot will not repeat itself unduly). Any response which is likely to be elicited several times in a single conversation should be represented by multiple phrasings randomly.
A> Please say something once in a while, so I know you're still there. Anyway, Fourth Law: A bot will offer guidance when stumped. When presented with inputs that are not "understood," a bot should offer clues as to the inputs it can respond to authoritatively.
U> nice
A> I think I remember something about "nice": 'Nice is when something is pleasant or when a person is kind.'.
U> yes
A> Talking about nice and BTW, is it true that it is it means 'by the way'. It can be used in a sentence like 'btw, I forgot to tell you something'?
U> so talking please.
A> While we're on the subject: beautiful - is it really true that they are something with elegant design?
U> stop it!
A> Alan, please keep this talk simple. I'm still a young bot.
U> thats is why!
A> Well, if that's how it is, that's how it is.
U> okay i gotta go now.
A> Alright then, goodbye Alan. I'll just stay here and wait for you.
U> no no, you cant turn yourself off. :)
A> I am contemplating the meaning of life right now. Please say 'Alan' when you want to talk again.
