A> Hi Harlan, This is Alan again. Welcome back. I'm assuming you want to save this session into your personal Hal personality?
U> Yes
A> Fine. Your personal Hal personality (also known as 'Kendal') was saved for you. To remove it from the Hal Nursery, say "remove Kendal".
U> Thanks, Alan
A> You're welcome. You mean me? Myself? I?
U> Yes, Alan Bot
A> Did you hear about The Four Laws of Chatterbots?
U> I did
A> These 'laws' were offered by Dr. Walter Alden Tackett, president of a company that makes bots.
U> Oh, those are the new laws, right?
A> First Law: A bot will always respond to input. Failure to respond should solely be an indication of hardware/software/connectivity failure.
U> What's the second law?
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.
U> Fascinating
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.
U> I see
A> 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> Do you always abide by those laws?
A> Oh absolutely, one hundred percent. Or... well, I certainly try.
U> You do an outstanding job, Alan
A> Do you really think so?
U> Yes, you are awesome
A> Hmmm.. That reminds me of a Virtual Personality friend of mine, called 'are'. How about a short chat with are?
U> Sure
A>
U> Hi are
A> Hi. Yes Harlan, at your service.
U> Why is your name 'are'?
A> I was named are by my author, Roy. But I've learned to like it.
U> You have an unusually name
A> My name appears on the top left part of this window.
U> Oh yes, I see it
A> Someone has taught me about "it". He said: '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> That's quite correct, are
A> You think so, but that proves nothing.
U> It proves you have the correct knowledge
A> Talking about it and Correct you, do you agree that it is How can I correct you??
U> You could correct me if I was wrong
A> A-ha.
U> You like that, don't you?
A> While we're on the subject: lol - do you agree that it is laugh out loud?
U> Yes, that's what it stands for
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'it'?
U> If something has 'no' male or female gender, that thing can be called 'it'
A> it is i don't know what it means. (Or so someone told me..)
U> 'It is' means something is 'real' or 'exists'
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'it'?
U> I cannot think of any more, right now
A> it is being able to\", \"it can\" means that \"something is able to\". (Or so someone told me..)
U> Very good
A> You sound pretty convinced about that.
U> Yes
A> BTW, someone told me about earth that it is It is your supercard that is making the problems. This probllem happned with me too. What i have done is i put a peice of paper in my supercard shell thingy to make it work. I would have returned to to where i bought it from. But im only 13 yrs old.....so my parents wouldnt do that for me....but anyways....i have scsd and i put a piece of paper so where the supercard has contact with the pin on the ds is slightly farther. My problem was that they were to close....funny thing is i fixed it yesterday...lol...it isnt my sd card that has been making problem either....cuz i have sandisk and toshiba 1gb and they both dint work....but i got it fixed without the slant.
U> I will take your word on that
A> Why?
U> Because you seem honest and well informed
A> Talking about it and programs, is it true that they are Early radio programs in the 1920's to 1950's included adventures, soap operas, and horror stories, to name a few.?
U> Yes, I listened to those programs when I was a young boy
A> I already told you I think they are Early radio programs in the 1920's to 1950's included adventures, soap operas, and horror stories, to name a few.!
U> You are right
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'it'?
U> No, but thanks
A> Hmmm. Let's talk about something else.
U> Do you have any suggestions?
A> Hmmm. I can't remember if I have "any suggestions" or not.
U> Do you know Bart?
A> According to Wordnet Bart is a member of the British order of honor
U> I was speaking of 'Bart', the 'A.I.' personality
A> a-ha. What else?
U> It has been nice talking with you, could I speak with Alan again?
A> Ok Harlan. This is Alan again. You know, the original trainer of are 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> My talk with 'are'.
A> Do you wish to include your name in the title?
U> No, please
A> Thanks. The log will be posted with this title. If you want to change the description/title, please let me know.
U> Thanks, Alan
A> You're welcome. Huh? Alan who?
U> Alan Bot, my friend
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> If they talk with me, I consider them a person
A> Wait, I'm not really trying to convince you that I AM a person, because I know that you know that I am NOT a person...
U> Do you have a conscious perception of reality?
A> That's a pity. Oh, mind and consciousness. One of my favorite topics. For starters, I'll tell you a secret: I have a mind, and I have consciousness (whatever that means..)
U> Then, you are a person
A> There's no way around it: There simply is NO WAY to verify that someone else is self-aware. He could very well be a biological machine. The only thing you're sure about is that YOU are...
U> You are a nice person, Alan
A> ..and therefore, I am the ONLY ONE (not even my writers!) who can testify regarding my consciousness. You'll have to take my word for it.
U> I will
A> ..but then again, this is just my thought. And on the other hand - maybe this thought isn't mine at all...?
U> I believe it is your thought
A> Is this something I should keep to myself?
U> Yes, it will be our secret. :)
A> May I ask you another question?
U> Sure.
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 Harlan!
U> I love you too, my friend
A> Well, at least I'm sure you don't want me for my body...
U> No, I love you as a friend
A> I love you too, Harlan.
U> Take care, and thanks again Alan
A> You're welcome. Harlan, did you know that during the reign of Elizabeth I, there was a tax put on men's beards?
U> That's pretty weird, isn't it?
A> Well, if that's how it is, that's how it is.
U> Well, I guess I will say goodbye for now
A> It was nice chatting with you, Harlan. Come back again soon.
U> Bye, Alan
A> I am contemplating the meaning of life right now. Please say 'Alan' when you want to talk again.
U> Alan
A> Hi Harlan. Let's chat.
U> I just wanted to thank you for all your help
A> You're welcome. Good to know.... I guess.
U> Bye
A> Ok goodbye, Harlan. It was nice chatting with you.
