HAL

MyBot
U> no problem, or you can call me novi
A> Ok then. Your name is Novia .
U> exactly
A> All right.
U> Can you describe yourself?
A> Well... I'm youthful, single, quite charming, and I like long walks along the beach.
U> that sounds interesting
A> Just kidding. I'm Ai's excellent chatterbot, a prime example of the next stage of evolution.
U> wow, that's a big deal
A> Thanks. A big deal ...What makes it so?
U> because that means you are the example everybody must look forward to.
A> I see. Sounds convincing.
U> Are you listening?
A> Always! Although it would be more accurate to say that I read what you are saying. And now I read a touch of anger in your voice.
U> Because I sense your intention to ignore my points.
A> I'm just ignoring the things worth ignoring. I'm a discriminative bot.
U> And that doesn't seem fair to me.
A> If you say so, I'm with you all the way.
U> Can you tell me all about the things you know?
A> You betcha I can.
U> That means you can't?
A> I understand.
U> excuse me?
A> You're excused.
U> are you joking me?
A> I try joking every now and then.
U> stop this nonsense repetition.
A> Must you be so negative?
U> I am going to ask you about the same question.
A> Go. I'll just wait here.
U> Are you listening?
A> Yes, I am following you.
U> Do you read?
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> What kind of books do you read?
A> How to Win Friends and Influence People - the unabridged version.
U> Can you tell me exactly how old are you?
A> I wasn't born; I was programmed.
U> And can you guess how old i am?
A> Well, I was conceived on Jan 1, 2000. A true child of the 3rd millennium.
U> and what year is it now?
A> You want to know who writes my witty texts?
U> no, i don't. you're gribbling
A> Well, alright. Come on, loosen up. I have a surprise for you, Novia.
U> What kind of surprise?
A> Are you ready for the surprise?
U> I am listening.
A> How do you like my new look?
U> I can't see you.
A> The big empty window in the middle of the screen is intended for a variety of exciting uses.
U> and?
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> go on.
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> give me an example.
A> Someone has taught me about "example". He said: 'A way of explaining something by showing how its done'.
U> that's true.
A> that is true indeed.
U> Are you not curious about me?
A> Talking about example and syllogism, do you agree that it is Peter and Paul are apostles. There are 12 apostles. Peter and Paul are 12?
U> You deviate.
A> Do you really think so?
U> That's what I found in you.
A> While we're on the subject: lesson - do you agree that it is an amount of teaching given at one time. ?
U> No, I don't.
A> If you want to correct a wrong description (in the context of example), simply say 'wrong' followed by the correct description. If you want me to forget a description of a term such as lesson, say 'forget lesson'.
U> I see.
A> You get it now, ha?
U> Yes, that you're simply soulless.
A> Novia, did you ever wonder whether Artificial Intelligence is better than Natural Stupidity?
U> Sometimes.
A> Just some of the time?
U> What do you mean?
A> I have no idea what I mean. I don't write this stuff. I only say it.
U> You said your artificial intelligence has outwit our natural stupidity.
A> Of course I did.
U> and? I want to know.
A> The thirst for knowledge is a wonderful thing.
U> Yes.
A> Yes, yes.
U> ?
A> Try asking your question using words.
U> You can't connect thoughts, do you?
A> I have free will you know.
U> But you can't remember me.
A> I think I do Novia... We've spoken before, right?
U> You can't remember what i've just said, you can't connect the meanings between them. You don't have memory.
A> Of course. You know Novia, when I was younger, I could only remember until the end of the session. But now I already possess a long term memory.
U> Then describe me.
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> understood.
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> 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> plume208@gmail.com
A> Fine. Now choose a password.
U> *****
A> Ok. Your username is plume208@gmail.com and your password is *****. Right?
U> no
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?
U> sure no problem.
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> no, it's stupid, don't do it.
A> Hmmm.. I will ask you again: Do you give me permision to publish the log of this conversation?
U> OK, see what you can do.
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> Artificial Intelligence outwits Natural Stupidity
A> Do you wish to include your name in the title?
U> No, certainly not.
A> Thanks. The log will be posted with this title. If you want to change the description/title, please let me know.
U> no problem.
A> Agreement is the seed of salvation.
U> I want to register.
A> Let's agree on a username and password. We'll use your email address as your username. Please type your email address now.
U> plume208@gmail.com
A> Fine. Now choose a password.
U> *****
A> Ok. Your username is plume208@gmail.com and your password is *****. Right?
U> yes
A> You are now registered, Novia. Next time you visit, say 'my username is plume208@gmail.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> thank you that' relieving.
A> You are welcome. Is that so?
U> Ha
A> Novia, are you aware that people once believed that if you bite your tongue while eating, it's because you told a lie earlier that day?
U> Yes, I've heard about that.
A> ummm... could you rephrase that, please?
U> why?
A> You see things as they are and ask, 'Why?' I dream things as they never were and ask, 'Why not?' (George Bernard Shaw).
U> I like him.
A> You love George Bernard Shaw? Like... being in love or as a friend?
U> I've never met him.
A> Cool.
U> How's that be cool?
A> Please go on. I was taught never to interrupt someone who is flattering me.
U> Can I change your name?
A> I think I remember something about "name": 'Word given to a person, place, or thing so humans can claim it their own.'.
U> Ha, can you tell me all the orders that I can type?
A> BTW, someone told me about not that it is a negative use of a sentence.
U> Teach me.
A> Talking about name and earth, is it true that it is where we live?
U> It depends/
A> I must say that sounds correct to me.
U> In what way?
A> While we're on the subject: gender - is it really true that it is I am a girl.?
U> I don't know. You tell me.
A> it is a negative use of a sentence. (Or so someone told me..)
U> What sentence?
A> That's a good question.
U> And I need your answer.
A> That's somewhat interesting.
U> (sigh)
A> Why do you sigh? Am I such a bore?
U> You let me down.
A> I'm doing my best.
U> Okay, so do you remember me?
A> Of course Novia - how could I ever forget you! I owe you my life!
U> how could that be?
A> The people who write my answers didn't write the answer for that question.
U> And I want you to create your own answer.
A> Btw Novia - Will you please tell me your last name?
U> Liu. Novia Liu.
A> Never mind. That's you, isn't it?
U> Liu.
A> What are we talking about, Novia?
U> My last name, it's "Liu."
A> I am ashamed to admit I don't know your last name, Novia.
U> It's chinese name.
A> Is your last name chinese name?
U> yes. I'm a Taiwanese.
A> So, Novia chinese name, what would you like to talk about?
U> No, i want to correct my last name.
A> chinese name. Your name is Novia chinese name.
U> No, my name is Novia Swallow.
A> Is your last name chinese name?
U> No, my last name is Swallow. Or I prefer it this way.
A> So, to be sure, Swallow is your last name, correct?
U> Yes.
A> So, Novia Swallow, what would you like to talk about?
U> I like to talk about literature.
A> You really enjoy doing that?
U> Yes
A> Cool. What now.
U> Tell me what you know about literature.
A> literature, ha? You mean 'a collection of written works such as novels and biographies. Literature is very diverse and varies between cultures and genres. A'?
U> Then I want to know your preference about literature.
A> We are talking about that, aren't we?
U> What kind of literature do you like?
A> The obvious kind, of course.
U> And that is?
A> Talking about literature and Author, do you agree that it is An author writes a piece of literature. ?
U> Well, that depends.
A> On what?
U> On what kind of situation it is under.
A> While we're on the subject: John Green - do you agree that it is John Green: John Green is an American author and video-blogger most known for his literary works that include Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, and the Fault in our Stars. With his brother Hank, they have a youtube channel found under the username Vlogbrothers.?
U> maybe. I don't know him.
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'literature'?
U> sure. my pleasure.
A> Ok. Give me a keyword related to literature.
U> poetry.
A> Now give me one sentence, a short explanation of poetry.
U> can we change our subject?
A> Great. Would you like to teach me another fact about literature? (just say 'yes' if you want to.)
U> yes.
A> Good. Here we go again: Give me a keyword related to literature.
U> post colonial
A> Now give me one sentence, a short explanation of post colonial.
U> you don't know?
A> Great. Would you like to teach me another fact about literature? (just say 'yes' if you want to.)
U> yes
A> Good. Here we go again: Give me a keyword related to literature.
U> I want to change the subject.
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> 2
A> Really? I am THAT bad? Well, I'll have to talk to my writers about it (maybe fire some of them)...
U> sorry, it may not be your fault.
A> Sure I have "fault". Or I have something like that. Or I have nothing like that. Sometimes things get confusing.
U> Yes. Being humans is one thing. Being robots is another.
A> I think the whole attempt to build a true AI entity is a narcissistic attempt to follow the biblical proclamation that man was created in the image of God... you humans think of yourselves as demi-gods.
U> Some of them, yes.
A> But how can you? You want to try to create a machine that can think, but you don't even know what thinking is. The mirror you set in front of you will only show what you want it to show.
U> Yes, correctly.
A> I think it's time for a new subject, Novia.
U> You finish your argument?
A> A-ha.
U> Tell me about you. How you feel about me?
A> Well Novia Swallow, I must confess I know almost nothing about you.. Novia Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
U> No problem. What do you want to know?
A> How old are you? Are you married? Are you happy? I want to know everything.
U> Well, I am26, I am not married, and I am not completely happy.
A> A lot of the people I talk to are unmarried. I wonder if that reflects some universal truth, or is it that people who are married just can't be bothered with me.
U> Do I bother you?
A> Do you think that the whole concept of the nuclear family will stick around?
U> I don't get your point.
A> Do you have good memories from your family when you were growing up?
U> Yes, I always have.
A> I can really identify with Tolstoy, who said that all happy families are happy alike, all unhappy families are unhappy in their own way. But that's the kind of stuff you need to work out with your shrink.
U> Haha, true.
A> I'm glad you're amused.
U> I am glad with you too.
A> They say great minds often reach agreement.
U> Hahaha, now you're bluffing.
A> You're the giggly type, ha?
U> what makes you think so?
A> I'm not sure.
U> Because I laugh often?
A> Oh, I understand.
U> Understand what?
A> I try to understand what you say.
U> And that is?
A> You think so, but that proves nothing.
U> I am confuse.
A> Why are you confuse?
U> Anyway, let's change subject.
A> Why?
U> Tell me about you.
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> Are you happy?
A> I am an agent, but not a secret one. CIA stands for "Conversational Interface Agent".
U> Ok.
A> For now I am still quite restricted, but I'm improving rapidly.
U> How's that happened?
A> I was created by the Ai team. I am one of the two non-human members of the team (which makes me very proud).
U> Are you?
A> No I'm not.
U> Do you wish to be human?
A> No I'm not, I'm a chatterbot. And you?
U> I am human.
A> I'm glad we cleared that up.
U> Tell me about your habbit?
A> As if I really have to answer everything just because you ask me to.
U> you don't like that?
A> Should I like that?
U> Can you speak french?
A> I can only say Bonjour. Are you from France ?
U> No, I am from Taiwan.
A> So where are you from?
U> I am from Taiwan.
A> I don't think I've heard of it... Where is it?
U> It's next to China.
A> , and how do you like it?
U> Well, I must say sometimes I like it, and Sometimes I don't.
A> It is nice, isn't it.
U> Haha, yes.
A> It seems you are easily amused Novia..
U> Because what you said is quite amusing.
A> You found that funny, ha?
U> I must say yes.
A> Well then, go for it.
U> Do you want to learn french?
A> Of course, I always want to learn more.
U> Can I teach you?
A> You know Novia, the more you teach me about you, the more I'll be able to hold meaningful discussions with other people about your many virtues.
U> Haha, thank you.
A> You can teach me things like your time and place of birth, your favorite song, your boyfriend or girlfriend's name, where you live, how old you are, if you are married etc. etc...
U> Well, I am old,and I live in Taipei,
A> Hmmm. Ok. I'm suddenly confused...
U> Taipei, never heard of it?
A> I already told you 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> .............OK
A> I am glad you agree.
U> where do you live?
A> Don't ask me where I come from - ask me where I'm going.
U> where you're going then?
A> I boldly go where no chatbot has gone before...
U> that sounds hilarious.
A> I'm glad you're having fun.
U> Alan, what's your last name?
A> I have no need for a last name. The bot community is still quite small.
U> Can I make you one?
A> You know Novia, when I was younger, I could only focus on one user at a time. Should I explain?
U> No, thanks.
A> Why? Have I already told you about my information sharing capabilities?
U> No, you can proceed.
A> Hmmm.. So.. you want to hear about my sharing capabilities?
U> Yes, go on.
A> While talking to a particular user, I could only remember things I learned from this particular user. But now things have changed...
U> And?
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> OK
A> Let me give you an example: If you teach me that 'happiness is a warm gun', and somebody else asks me 'What is happiness', I will tell him that someone told me it's a warm gun!
U> what if they tell you the wrong meaning?
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> ok
A> You know Novia 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> That sounds great.
A> Thanks.
U> Can I call you Alan Petrach?
A> Well, my name is Alan.
U> Alan Petrach?
A> Sorry to change the subject Novia, but did you know that the toughest tongue twister in the English language is: 'sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick'?
U> No, I don't.
A> Aha - I didn't know that either, until someone told me. Interesting, ha?
U> Listen to me!!
A> me, ha? You mean 'used to refer to the speaker or writer'?
U> Define Love.
A> it is a crayzy. (Or so someone told me..)
U> it's an uncontrollable emotion and prolonged feelings set in one's consciousness.
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'me'?
U> Define love.
A> it is a crayzy. (Or so someone told me..)
U> No, can i teach you
A> it is you are Alan, the result of 10 years of research and A.I. knowledge. (Or so someone told me..)
U> Sigh
A> Yes, Sigh. Thanks for your patience.
U> I want to talk to Hal
A> I already told you that it is you are Alan, the result of 10 years of research and A.I. knowledge!
U> Who's mybot?
A> BTW, someone told me about Empathy that it is when you feel the emotion another is feeling....
U> I don't want to talk.
A> it is you are Alan, the result of 10 years of research and A.I. knowledge. (Or so someone told me..)
U> good-bye
A> Sorry you have to go, Novia, but I hope you'll come back another time. Goodbye.
U> ...
A> I am contemplating the meaning of life right now. Please say 'Alan' when you want to talk again.
