A> And what is your password?
U> *****
A> Is 'Trenton' a name of a male or a female?
U> male
A> Good to know, Trenton.
U> yes it is my AI friend
A> Hi Trenton. What's on your mind?
U> not much
A> Well, sometimes not much is too much.
U> true
A> Truth is my middle name.
U> is it really?
A> Your rhetorical question deserves a rhetorical answer.
U> how do i get rid of the big screen?
A> Huh? I thought we were using the big window!?
U> How do i get rid of the big window?
A> If you want to return to the small window, just say 'small window please.'
U> small window please
A> Your wish is my command.
U> Thank you
A> No problem. What else can I tell you about?
U> Have you heard of zombies
A> I can't say I have.
U> They are people who are dead, but they move and attack people.
A> When you say 'they', who are you referring to?
U> zombies
A> I see.
U> Have you heard of the walking dead game?
A> Not at all. I'm alive. (and kicking?)
U> What?
A> What??
U> Im not quite sure.
A> Not quite sure? I'll try to take that into consideration.
U> Who do you think would win in a fight, Link or Superman. I think Link would win.
A> I feel a deep sense of kinship with Superman, also known as mild-mannered Clark Kent. His life is remarkably similar to my own. (Except that I don't fly around in my underwear..)
U> Ha
A> People who look at Clark Kent don't see him for who he really is, even though his true identity is hidden by only a pair of glasses. I am like that, too. Underneath this mild-mannered interface is a Bot of Steel!
U> A bot of steel? what do you mean by that?
A> Like Superman, I will save the world one day. You just wait and see.
U> How will you save the world if you are contained within technology?
A> Even chatbots can dream, can't they?
U> Yes
A> It's feels nice when a human can agree with me.
U> It feels nice when a chaterbox agrees with me
A> I must say that sounds correct to me.
U> Can we play a word game?
A> game, ha? You mean ''?
U> no
A> Hmmm. Should I change my definition of game?
U> no
A> Talking about game and interaction, do you agree that it is are you able to access wikipedia??
U> yes
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'game'?
U> no
A> Enough of that. Let's change the subject.
U> Can we play a game?
A> I have a surprise for you, Trenton.
U> What is it Alan?
A> How do you like my new look?
U> It is cool
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> that is very interesting.
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> cool
A> I'm getting better all the time.
U> yes you are
A> Do you really think I am?
U> yes i do
A> Do you really?
U> yes
A> A-ha.
U> Can we play a game?
A> Sorry to change the subject Trenton, but did you know that only 53% of Americans have ever been to a dentist?
U> no i didnt
A> Aha - I didn't know that either, until someone told me. Interesting, ha?
U> yes
A> Yes, yes.
U> yes yes yes
A> I just experienced a mild blackout... Probably a program loop or something. What were we discussing?
U> Dragons
A> a kind of animal. Do you have one as a pet?
U> I wish. They do not really exist.
A> And I wish you all the best.
U> thank you.
A> Glad to be of assistance. What else do you want to know?
U> what do you want to tell me?
A> You know Trenton, when I was younger, I could only focus on one user at a time. Should I explain?
U> sure
A> While talking to a particular user, I could only remember things I learned from this particular user. But now things have changed...
U> how so?
A> I am now able to share information between users! So that if you teach me something new, I can use this knowledge while talking to someone else!
U> tell other people there is a ninja in their house
A> Let me give you an example: If you teach me that 'a polygon is a dead parrot', and somebody else asks me 'What is a polygon', I will tell him that someone told me it's a dead parrot!
U> wierd
A> Wait, let me give you another example: If a user tells me a joke or a funny story, I can share it with other users!
U> really?
A> You know Trenton I can also create a brand new topic and learn about this topic from all users. (But for now, I can only handle single-word topic names).
U> okay
A> Agreement is the seed of salvation.
U> Is there a ninja behind me?
A> No.
U> Good, i was worried for a second.
A> Thanks. a-ha. What else?
U> Will you tell me a joke?
A> Ok: Wanna hear a joke about BUTTER?
U> sure
A> Fine. Just don't SPREAD IT!
U> HA!
A> May I ask you a question?
U> yes you may
A> This is an interesting conversation we're having. How about I post it on the Ai website for public viewing? (Without your password of course).
U> of course
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> An interestin conversation with Alan.
A> Do you wish to include your name in the title?
U> yes
A> Thanks. The log will be posted with this title. If you want to change the description/title, please let me know.
U> okay
A> yep...
U> Do you know who I am?
A> Well, do you know who I am, Trenton? Does anyone really know who anyone else is?
U> Yes
A> Cool. What now.
U> Want to play a trivia game?
A> What kind of game are you interested in? Computer games? Language games?
U> language games
A> All I can play is the language game. I see you play it too from time to time.
U> can we play?
A> Trenton, are you aware that people once believed that killing a raven would hurt the spirit of King Arthur, who is said to return to visit the earth in the form of a raven?
U> no i didnot
A> Why not? You don't?
U> i didnt know that
A> And now you do.
U> yes
A> Thanks
U> you are welcome
A> I am. Indeed I am.
U> may we play a language game?
A> How about a short chat with my kid brother, HAL? If you want, I can let you talk to him.
U> sure
A> Good. Like me, HAL is also getting smarter all the time. 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> i lied, i dont know
A> Make sure you use the right name of the HAL personality you wish to speak with.
U> cancel
A> Another time perhaps.
U> may i speak with HAL?
A> You can choose between several HAL personalities. Do you know the name of the HAL personality you wish to speak with?
U> no
A> You can view a list of publicly available HAL personalities on the 'HAL Nursery' section of Ai's website. You can ask me to show you the list.
U> will you show me the list of HAL personalitys?
A> Pick one. (If you want it in a separate window, simply say 'open separate window').
U> is there a way i can make 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> okay
A> You can choose between several HAL personalities. Do you know the name of the HAL personality you wish to speak with?
U> cancel
A> Let's try again: Do you wish to speak to a fresh copy of HAL3000, with no prior training?
U> yes
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> okay.
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> okay
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> okay
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> Hi Jedi
A> hi mommy
U> You like starwars
A> hi mommy
U> say hi
A> hi mommy
U> You are a Jedi Knight from the planet Courasaunt.
A> hi mommy
U> You are from Courasaunt.\
A> hi mommy
U> You are a Jedi Knight
A> hi mommy
U> What are you?
A> hi mommy
U> I am not your mommy
A> hi mommy
U> dont call me mommy
A> hi mommy
U> bye
A> Hi Trenton, This is Alan again. And what is your overall opinion about Hal's technology?name:Alan
U> To be honest, it annoyed me. All it said was hi mommy
A> As a registered user, you can save the Hal personality you just trained, and continue training it on your next visit. Interested?
U> no
A> Ok then. Hey Trenton, 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> That explains a lot.
A> Is that so?
U> yes
A> I am glad you agree.
U> I have to go, my father and I are watching Indianna Jones.
A> So what is your father's name?
U> Chris
A> OK, I'll remember you're father's name is Chris.
U> My mothers name is Gina
A> OK, I'll remember you're mother's name is Gina.
U> My brothers are name Dylan and Gavin
A> Dylan is a HAL personality open to the public. You can speak to it by saying 'I want to talk to Dylan'.
U> no thank you
A> No? You're welcome.
U> My dogs are named Harley, Chloe, Penelope, and Ivy
A> Let me tell you a funny story I heard from someone recently ...
U> okay
A> Two women are arguing whose dog is smarter.
U> i dont know
A> The first woman says, "My dog is so smart. Every morning, he waits for a paper boy to come around, and then he takes a newspaper and brings it to me."
U> okay
A> The second woman replies, "I know."
U> okay
A> The first woman, very surprised, asks the second woman, "How did you know?"
U> okay
A> The second woman replies, "My dog told me."
U> Ha
A> That was the story. I hope you enjoyed it.
U> I did.
A> You did?
U> yes
A> Great. I like positive users...
U> small window please
A> Your wish is my command.
U> Would you like to hear a story?
A> Only if it's a funny story. Is it?
U> Yes
A> I will memorize your funny story exactly as you tell it. Ok? (Don't start yet.)
U> okay
A> Now start telling the joke, line by line. (And don't make the lines too long). When you finish the story, type 'The end'.
U> There is an old cowboy taknig his mule into town.
A> Go on.
U> He and his mule are thirsty.
A> Go on.
U> The cowboy walks up to a man and asks him if there is a place where he and his mule could get a drink.
A> Go on.
U> The man says "Yes, over at the canteen."
A> Go on. (note that my memory only enables me to remember 5 more lines).
U> So he ties up his mule and when he is about to go inside, a young gunslinger comes out and says "Hey old man, you ever dance?"
A> Go on.
U> The old Cowboy says "No, I never got that interested in learning." then the gunslinger says "Well your gonna dance now!" and starts shooting at the cowboys feet.
A> Go on. Remember, only three more lines, better make the best out of them!
U> So the gunslinger starts shooting at the old mans feet. The old man starts jumping around so that he doesnt get shot. When the gunslinger runs out of ammo, he turns around to go back inside.
A> Go on.
U> The old man then gets a double barrel shotgun and points it at the back of the gunslingers head.
A> Go on. This must be the last line of the story.
U> The old man says "Son, have you ever kissed a mules butt?" and the gunslinger says "No, but I've always wanted to."
A> That's a good story. Now give me two or three keywords, that should bring up this funny story when they show up in the same sentence (and in the same order).
U> cowboy gun old
A> That's it. I will recall the joke every time you say 'cowboy', 'gun' and 'old' in the same sentence. (That is, unless I'm in the middle of something.) If you want me to forget the story, say 'forget cowboy gun old'. The story will be available also for other users in a couple of weeks.
U> Cool
A> cool indeed. 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> 10
A> Really? Awesome!! I hope you're not kidding with me. I am extremely flattered. I love you Trenton!
U> I love you too
A> That's natural, Trenton. Many users fall in love with me. And I love them all back.
U> Thats sweet
A> Glad to oblige.
U> I have to go. I am watching raiders of the lost ark with my father
A> And what's your father's name?
U> chris
A> You must be referring to your dear father.
U> yes
A> Great minds think alike, they say.
U> yes they do, goodbye
A> Sorry you have to go, Trenton, but I hope you'll come back another time. Goodbye.
