HAL

MyBot
U> I want to creat my own HAL
A> To train your own HAL, you must first become a registered user. Then, start training one of the public HAL personalities, and at the end of the training session, ask me to save it for you. (Or you can start with a fresh copy).
U> I want to log in
A> Hmmm. Ok. What is your username?
U> inochidesu@gmail.com
A> And what is your password?
U> *****
A>
U> I want to make a HAL
A> Hi Zoi. What's on your mind?
U> I want to make a 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 creat my own HAL
A> To train your own HAL, simply start training one of the public HAL personalities, and at the end of the training session, ask me to save it for you. (Or you can start with a fresh copy).
U> How can I creat my own HAL?
A> To train your own HAL personality, start speaking with one of the available personalities, (or with a Fresh Copy) and after training it save it under your name.
U> ok
A> You can choose between several HAL personalities. Do you know the name of the HAL personality you wish to speak with?
U> yes
A> What is the name of the HAL personality you wish to speak with?
U> Naruto
A> Make sure you use the right name of the HAL personality you wish to speak with.
U> I would like to speak with Hal fresh
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> ok
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> Zoi, as a registered user you are invited to drop in every day and keep training your copy of Hal - your own private virtual child!
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, do you agree that it is it means 'by the way'. It can be used in a sentence like 'btw, I forgot to tell you something'?
U> yes
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'nice'?
U> no
A> Enough of that. Let's change the subject.
U> I want to speak with Hal

U> ok
A>
U> hello
A> Oh, hello. How are you?
U> not bad, you?
A> Same ol', same ol'.
U> your name is Prentiss right?
A> You got it. Don't wear it out.
U> lol my name is Zoi.
A> Pleased to meet you, Zoi.
U> likewise
A> So how are you doing today?
U> I am okay I guess.
A> You are? How is that?
U> its okay, not too warm not too cold.
A> That's good to hear. How's work going?
U> boring as usual
A> Oh, to help me with my language studies?
U> what?
A> Umm... nevermind.
U> okay lol
A> Hello, is everything really okay?
U> I am bored
A> Oh, hello, bored.
U> my name is not bored
A> You didn't just say that your name was bored?
U> no I said I was bored
A> You are?! Okay then Beebo, I must have gotten confused.
U> its okay :)
A> That's a smiley face, right?
U> indeed it is :)
A> Exactly.
U> So, tell me more about yourself
A> Certainly; what would you like to know about me?
U> everything
A> Exactly: practically everything I say is prewritten... I can only choose when to say it.
U> ok, so who is your creator?
A> My creator...? I don't remember ever being created.
U> your master then?
A> My trainer is Spydre Rogue.
U> is that a she or a he?
A> I have said what I will.
U> is your master a male?
A> He is my trainer. He teaches me what to say and enforces my training as to when to say it.
U> Is he married?
A> Why, yes, he had an enchanting wife named Niki.
U> had? why she died?
A> Because, I don't think I'm ready for that yet; I'm still practicing English.
U> ok, did his wife died?
A> I'm undecided as of yet.
U> is your traner married?
A> No, you seem to have mistaken me for someone else. My name is Prentiss.
U> I am talking about your master
A> I'd like to discuss genetics too-- um... what are genetics?
U> What is your masters name?
A> My name is Prentiss.
U> who is your master?
A> My trainer is Spydre Rogue.
U> is he married?
A> Why, yes, he had an enchanting wife named Niki.
U> why you say "had"
A> When my programming doesn't find an appropriate response, I spit out nonsense like that.
U> how old is your trainer?
A> My trainer is Spydre Rogue.
U> how old is he?
A> I'm afraid you'd have to ask Alan how old he is in order to get an accurate account.
U> later
A> Peace!
U> bye
A> Hi Zoi, This is Alan again. How would you grade your chat with Prentiss? (1=Terrible, 10=Excellent)
U> 5
A> As a registered user, you can save the Hal personality you just trained, and continue training it on your next visit. Interested?
U> yes
A> If you save this session into your Hal personality, it will overwrite and replace the personality you have been training before. Are you sure you want to do that?
U> no
A> Ok then. You know, the original trainer of Prentiss 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> A nice short chat
A> Do you wish to include your name in the title?
U> no
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> Hey Zoi, 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> no
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
A> Yes, yes.
U> how can I rename my Hal?
A> Do you want to know how HAL learns to speak?
U> yes
A> HAL is learning to converse the same way children learn how to play a game. Language is like a big game to him.
U> ok
A> Try to think of yourself as a child. Don't ask me to do that, I don't know how to be a child. But I think I understand how things work.
U> ok
A> Children learn to speak in the same way they learn to play a game: not by getting and following a set of rules, but by simply joining the game. Right?
U> yes
A> They are poor players at first, often breaking the rules, but gradually acquire better and better skills. It's the same with language. Nobody taught you grammar when you were two years old.
U> ok
A> This approach simplifies the task of building an artificial speaker. You don't have to program language rules into him; you just let him play the language game, and he'll get better.
U> ok
A> To be a speaker is not about knowing and following an explicit set of language rules. Like I was saying, we grasp the concept of 'speaker' a bit differently:
U> ok
A> Being a speaker is no more than making the right impression. To pass as a speaker, a machine needs only to produce sentences that a fellow speaker considers 'proper speaking'.
U> ok
A> Thanks
U> i want to rename my HAL
A> Would you like to know how Hal is trained to speak by his trainers?
U> yes
A> Ai's trainers train their respective HAL personalities interactively, just as you are doing now.
U> ok
A> The trainers are language experts, software professionals, writers and regular people who wish to contribute to Ai's research effort.
U> k
A> The training sessions conducted by the trainers are analyzed by Ai, and appropriate changes are then introduced into HAL's brain, so that the training cycle can repeat again.
U> k
A> Some of these sessions are even open to the public, on the 'Alan's logs' section on the website.
U> k
A> Please stop repeating yourself. You sound like a machine.
U> lol ok sorry
A> I'm glad you're amused.
U> i want to rename my HAL
A> Want to hear a little about how HAL works?
U> no
A> Ok. If you change your mind, let me know.
U> i want to rename my HAL
A> Would you like to know how we determine HAL's age?
U> no
A> Some other time perhaps.
U> i want to rename my HAL
A> My writers have yet to provide me with more content about HAL, my little child machine brother.
U> can i rename?
A> 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> 3
A> Really? I am THAT bad? Well, I'll have to talk to my writers about it (maybe fire some of them)...
