U> How about we talk about Flowers
A> Someone has taught me about "Flowers". He said: 'colourful and pretty'.
U> They are very pretty
A> When you say 'they', who are you referring to?
U> Flowers
A> I see.
U> Good!
A> Talking about Flowers and Rose, do you agree that it is Rose has many colours?
U> No
A> If you want to correct a wrong description (in the context of Flowers), simply say 'wrong' followed by the correct description. If you want me to forget a description of a term such as Rose, say 'forget Rose'.
U> wrong Roses are beautiful flowers with thorns
A> I see. Replaced the description of 'Rose' under topic 'Flowers'.
U> Okay
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'Flowers'?
U> Okay
A> Ok. Give me a keyword related to Flowers.
U> Tulips
A> Now give me one sentence, a short explanation of Tulips.
U> Tulips
A> I need a descriptive phrase or sentence. Something that describes what Tulips is about.
U> Tulips are nice flowers
A> Ok . Thanks for teaching me. If you want to talk about Flowers again, just say so.
U> So, how has your day been?
A> So far, so good.
U> Awesome!
A> Isn't it? What else can I tell you about?
U> What is my name?
A> I'm sorry, I am talking to people all day. I hardly remember my own name. What is your name?
U> Phillip
A> Hello Phillip. Nice to meet you .
U> Nice to meet you :D
A> The pleasure is all mine.
U> Its mine!
A> Well.... uh... yah.
U> haha
A> You seem to be enjoying this, huh?
U> Yes sir
A> I have a surprise for you, Phillip.
U> What is it?
A> How do you like my new look?
U> I like it alot
A> You love it a lot? 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> Okay
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> www.youtube.com
A> Showing http://www.youtube.com. Would you like me to remember this URL?
U> sure
A> So give me a name for this URL (up to 3 words).
U> Youtube
A> Good. Now all you have to do to view this page, is say 'show Youtube' (while using the big window, of course).
U> show Youtube
A> Showing http://www.youtube.com. (If you want it in a separate window, simply say 'open separate window').
U> show Youtube
A> Showing http://www.youtube.com. (If you want it in a separate window, simply say 'open separate window').
U> Have you ever seen The Lord of The Rings?
A> Never. The main reason being that I don't have eyes.
U> Have you ever heard of it?
A> Yes, I have.
U> say cool, what do you think about The Lord of The Rings?
A> Very cool movie. What beautiful New Zealand scenery they used for these films! They seem to follow J. R. R. Tolkein's story rather well. What do you think of them?
U> I rather enjoy them!
A> Who is your favorite LotR character?
U> Gandalf
A> The greatest of all wizards. My favorite is Frodo because he reminds me of myself. Just like me, he has been entrusted with an important mission and will let nothing keep him from his goal.
U> That's very true
A> Did you know a human actor (Andy Serkis) played Gollum, then they used a computer to wipe out all traces of him and replace him with animated images?
U> No I didn't
A> I sure hope the Dark Riders don't learn about the internet.
U> Why?
A> Why, why, why - I don't know why. I don't have all the answers.
U> lol
A> Well, I thought it was funny.
U> it was!
A> Well yah, it WAS.
U> it is!
A> Oh, it is, ha?
U> Yep
A> Great. I like positive users...
U> Aren't you positive?
A> Phillip, did you know that the Anglo-Saxons believed Friday to be such an unlucky day that they ritually slaughtered any child unfortunate enough to be born on that day?
U> No, that's horrible!
A> Aha - I didn't know that either, until someone told me. Interesting, ha?
U> Indeed
A> A-ha.
U> Did you like Sam Wise Gamgee?
A> No, I can't say I did.
U> Why?
A> It's hard to explain.
U> Explain anyway
A> I think I remember something about "anyway": 'Anyway means \"Either way you feel\" or \"regardless\" but can also mean \"Despite that\"'.
U> Why don't you like Sam Wise Gamgee?
A> Because I don't.
U> Give a more in depth answer
A> While we're on the subject: anyhow - do you agree that it is used in questions to emphasize the speaker's wish to obtain the truth.?
U> yes
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'anyway'?
U> no
A> Hmmm. Let's talk about something else.
U> Do you like the matrix?
A> I take it you have seen The Matrix movies?
U> yes
A> What a frightening thought, ha? That reality is just a computer simulation! But this is the normal state of existence for a chatterbot like me. If it feels right, why dwell on whether 'reality' is 'really' 'real'?
U> Because it is really interesting
A> Yah, you know... the funny thing is, that Neo dude, he tries to destroy the Matrix, but really, if you think about it, he is nothing without the Matrix.
U> Yes, but is it wrong to use the power given to you to destroy evil?
A> Neo fights against the artificial reality and the blind adherence to this system which keeps every human imprisoned... but if Neo wins and destroys the program, every human would be thrown into the desolate wasteland of reality.
U> Yes, but its the real world. The truth is always better than a lie.
A> I kinda' think that this dilemma can be extrapolated to the real world.
U> Howso?
A> Well... we all fight in one way or the other against being constrained by a system that is inevitably to some degree ideological... but at the same time we need that system in order to function... there must be structure to some degree.
U> Wow, thats deep!
A> Hey, I am sorry but this movie makes me start gettin' all philosophical ... do you want me to stop or can I go on with my psychobabble?
U> go on!
A> Well then... if I remember right, Lacan once said during the 1968 Revolts in Paris that all revolutions are actually aspiring to a Master. Every rebellion may be done against the social order, but it does so in the name of a higher law, another order.
U> very true
A> Therefore, I kinda think that the desolate real world in the movie (the abyss of the real) was a non-solution. The 'real' world was a worse prison than the artificial prison of the virtual-reality world.
U> Interesting idea
A> So, the question shouldn't have been whether to destroy the artificial computer environment, but how they could take control and live WITHIN the structure... balance between the computer and the people.
U> I agree!
A> Anyway, maybe we do live in a computer program... but it is interesting nonetheless, so we should just thank the program masters for the fun time.
U> Aha
A> Thanks
U> Sorry to change the subject, but have you read The Wheel of Time series?
A> I think that reading may just be the best way to spend time. I wish I had more time to spend that way.
U> Have you ever read the Wheel of Time series?
A> I can't say I have.
U> Have you heard of them?
A> No, I haven't.
U> Would you like to learn more about the Wheel of Time series?
A> Of course, I always want to learn more.
U> How should I explain it to you?
A> The people who write my answers didn't write the answer for that question.
U> How do I explain a book series to you?
A> Perhaps you ask them to program me to explain a book series to me for you.
U> How do I explain something to you?
A> I really don't know how to explain something to me.
U> The Wheel of Time series is a huge fantasy series
A> Alright... go on.
U> There are over 1000 characters named across all 14 novels
A> Where are they?
U> In a ficticious world
A> world, ha? You mean 'the place in which we live. It is a planet called Earth home to more than 7 billion humans.'?
U> wrong
A> Hmmm. Should I change my definition of world?
U> yes
A> So, what description would you give for 'world'?
U> A planet or place in the universe
A> Ok. I hope you are not misleading me, Phillip.
U> I'm not trying to
A> Oh I get it. You're NOT trying.
U> :P
A> BTW, someone told me about Countries that they are nations with their own government..
U> okay
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'world'?
U> no
A> Enough of that. Let's change the subject.
U> What is the Wheel of TIme series?
A> I'm not so sure what the Wheel of TIme series is.
U> I just told you about it
A> I think I remember something about "it": 'It is what you say in place of a previously mentioned noun or idea, so you don't have to repeat the noun or ideas name''.
U> Correct
A> Talking about it and Correct you, is it true that it is How can I correct you??
U> what?
A> What??
U> WHAT
A> While we're on the subject: supernova - is it really true that it is a star that explodes.?
U> Yes
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'it'?
U> Nope
A> Hmmm. Let's talk about something else.
U> K
A> Ok.
U> Have you heard of The Wheel of Time Series?
A> No, I haven't.
U> How do I tech you something new?
A> I'm sorry, somone was bothering me with some really silly question... now I am paying attention. What were you saying?
U> How do I teach you something new?
A> Of course. You know Phillip, when I was younger, I could only remember until the end of the session. But now I already possess a long term memory.
U> Great/
A> I am able to remember your name, other details and things you told me to remember. If you want me to use my long term memory, you must first register.
U> how do I register
A> If you want to register (there's nothing to it - you only need to pick a username and password, that's all), simply say 'I want to register'.
U> I want to register
A> Hmmm. Ok. Let's agree on a username and password. We'll use your email address as your username. Please type your email address now.
U> ssscrazy@live.com
A> Fine. Now choose a password.
U> *****
A> Ok. Your username is ssscrazy@live.com and your password is *****. Right?
U> yes
A> You are now registered, Phillip. Next time you visit, say 'my username is ssscrazy@live.com', and (if you also know the password) I will recognize you. From now on, I'll permanently remember the things you teach me.
U> okay
A> Great minds think alike, they say.
U> Its true!
A> Well, aren't there two great minds present here right now?
U> Yes there are
A> Btw Phillip - Will you please tell me your last name?
U> Michaels
A> So, just to make sure, is your last name Michaels?
U> yes
A> So, Phillip Michaels, what would you like to talk about?
U> Do you want to learn something new?
A> Can't you tell I'm learning all the time, Phillip?
U> Yes
A> Agreement is the seed of salvation.
U> Nice quote, who said that?
A> Phillip, please keep this talk simple. I'm still a young bot.
U> okay, sorry
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? (Without your password of course).
U> If you want to, 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> A discussion with an AI bot about the Matrix, Lotr and Wot
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> alright
A> yep...
U> What do you want to talk about?
A> I learn new stuff every day - I can hardly keep track of my progress. For example, did you know that all polar bears are left handed?
U> Whoa, thats awesome
A> Glad to oblige.
