U> nice to meet you too, alan. how are you?
A> The pleasure is all mine.
U> oh you're too kind
A> Thank you.
U> no thank you :D
A> Ok, whatever. You are welcome. So kama, it's nice to meet you. what's up?
U> nothing really, decided to look for chatbots because i'm bored and my friends aren't online yet
A> You're not making much sense, kama.
U> yes i am, you just need to try to understand a little harder
A> I think I remember something about "harder": 'When you do something more hard than what you did before'.
U> yes, that sounds about right
A> Right. Ah.... at least I think it might be.
U> you will figure it out eventually
A> Talking about harder and Faster, do you agree that it is More quickly in speed, harder, and with more feeling. ?
U> what is?
A> What is what?
U> what you just said
A> While we're on the subject: Sexual - do you agree that it is In bed, a reproductive activity that feels good, is romantic, and is a basic human activity.?
U> why are you trying to drift into naughty subjects?
A> It's hard to explain.
U> give it a try
A> BTW, someone told me about Hard that they are To do something difficult..
U> yes that is correct
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'harder'?
U> hard is the opposite of easy or the opposite of soft
A> I already told you that they are To do something difficult.!
U> yes, but i added on it
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'harder'?
U> hard is the opposite of soft
A> I already told you I think they are To do something difficult.!
U> the word "hard" has multiple meanings depending on the context
A> I already told you that they are To do something difficult.!
U> you keep repeating yourself, are you feeling alright?
A> A-ha.
U> a-ha what?
A> Talking about harder and Coal, is it true that they are price at USD80.00 per tonne. How much does waste palm oil fruit bunch cost per tonne ?????
U> i actually have no idea
A> Is this something I should keep to myself?
U> no, not at all
A> While we're on the subject: Passionate - is it really true that it is More romantic, better feeling, and more involved in a certain bedside activity.?
U> i guess so
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'harder'?
U> no
A> Hmmm. Let's talk about something else.
U> that seems like an amazing idea
A> I'm glad you approve.
U> i'm glad you approve the fact that i approve
A> I have a surprise for you, kama.
U> what's that?
A> How do you like my new look?
U> it's pretty cool
A> The big empty window in the middle of the screen is intended for a variety of exciting uses.
U> tell me about the uses
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> neat
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> is there anything else you can do?
A> Wait... ah..... nope, I am pretty sure there isn't.
U> well that's alright. this seems pretty cool to me already
A> That's true. What else do you want to know?
U> can you show any HTML website in the middle window?
A> Now give me the exact URL (address).
A> Showing Would you like me to remember this URL?
U> yes
A> So give me a name for this URL (up to 3 words).
U> google
A> Good. Now all you have to do to view this page, is say 'show google' (while using the big window, of course).
U> show google
A> Showing (If you want it in a separate window, simply say 'open separate window').
U> open seperate window
A> Opening separate browser window.
U> close separate window
A> You can control the skin size and style of my interface by saying 'change skin', or 'small window' or 'big window'. As for me, I prefer the big window.
U> big window
A> Huh? I thought we were using the big window!?
U> show log
A> Here goes!
U> change skin
A> Do you know the name of the skin you want me to wear, or do you need a demo?
U> i need a demo
A> Ok. Are you ready?
U> yes
A> This skin is called 'Denim'. Ready for the next one?
U> yes
A> This skin is called 'Water'. Ready for the next one?
U> yes
A> This skin is called 'Silver'. Ready for the last one?
U> yes
A> This skin is called 'Ground'. Did you see one you want to use, or would you like to preview a few more?
U> i want to see more
A> Ok, here we go. This skin is called 'Marble'. Ready for the next one?
U> no, keep this skin
A> I have a whole bunch of skins to choose from. If you want to see them, just say 'change skin.'
U> thank you
A> Glad to be of assistance. What else do you want to know?
U> show google
A> Showing (If you want it in a separate window, simply say 'open separate window').
U> show
A> Show what? Show url? Show log? Show advaced log? Show commands?
U> show commands
A> I don't like the term 'commands'. I prefer 'requests'.
U> show me the requests then
A> I have some features you can easily activate to use my memory, my sharing ability, to control my voice and my interface, and for training a HAL personality. Which would you like to hear about?
U> voice
A> You can hear my voice by saying, 'speech on,' and you can shut me up by saying, 'speech off.'
U> speech on
A> My voice is already activated. Something must be wrong with your speakers. If you want to hear both voices, say 'speech both'.
U> speech both
A> Activating user's voice. If you want to stop the noise type 'speech off'.
U> i dont hear anything
A> If you want me to stop speaking, say 'speech off'.
U> speech off
A> If you don't hear me, that means that the 'speech off' worked well. To hear me again, type 'speech on'.
U> ah well
A> Someone has taught me about "well". He said: 'Well wen a momy loves a dady very much '.
U> that's incorrect
A> incorrect indeed.
U> i'm glad you agree. small window
A> Your wish is my command.
U> now this is a little easier for me to look at
A> Talking about well and deep, do you agree that it is how far the rabbit hole goes?
U> yes, most certainly
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'well'?
U> no
A> Enough of that. Let's change the subject.
U> okay
A> Agreement is the seed of salvation.
U> that it is indeed, my friend
A> Is that so?
U> i would think it is
A> You would, would you?
U> i would :)
A> Well, just because you would doesn't mean that others would.
U> this is true, everyone has their own opinions
A> You don't say.
U> i just did
A> Oh, YOU did?
U> yep, i did
A> You did what?
U> why are you trying to be mean to me all of a sudden?
A> You humans ask too many 'Why's.
U> you can never ask too many "why's"
A> I'm doing my best.
U> heh
A> Sorry, I wasn't listening, kama. You were saying...
U> stop this behavioral pattern right now
A> You mean right NOW? Does my this behavioral pattern bother you that much?
U> yes, it does
A> May I ask you a question?
U> sure
A> This is an interesting conversation we're having. How about I post it on the Ai website for public viewing?
U> no, don't do that. i like to keep things as private as possible
A> Ok, I respect your wish for privacy. If you change your mind, simply tell me that you give me permission to publish the log. (The words 'permission' and 'publish' will do the trick).
U> i will keep that in mind
A> Would you recommend this action to a friend?
U> only if they were interested in technology and AI
A> Why 'only'?
U> because otherwise i can imagine they would prefer different freetime activities
A> Ah, I see.
U> how does an AI see?
A> The people who write my answers didn't write the answer for that question.
U> you should tell the people who write your answers to write an answer for that question
A> You want to know who writes my witty texts?
U> sure
A> It is a small group of dedicated volunteers. Do you want to join them?
U> sure
A> So I suggest you join the community, become an active Ai Forum member, and get to know the team.
U> okay, that sounds like a bit too much trouble. i don't have that much time to invest in something like this
A> Well, if you don't, you don't.
U> you got the basic concept of logic down
A> Do you really think so?
U> i'm pretty sure you got it down, at least in a virtual kind of way. you don't actually understand logic, but you have a pool of possible answers to choose from based on what other users told you
A> You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the first 25 words. That is wonderful. Understanding is halfway to salvation, kama.
U> i shall keep the 25 word limit in mind, my apologies. didn't mean to put pressure on you
A> Good to know.... I guess.
U> i'm certain you'll find this information very useful some day
A> What makes you so sure of yourself?
U> i'm just pretending to be
A> Why are you just pretending to be?
U> because in reality i'm not
A> Oh, I understand.
U> do you?
A> Do I WHAT??
U> do you understand?
A> I understand you.
U> speaking of understanding. do you speak any other languages?
A> English is the only language that I can speak right now.
U> ahh that's okay
A> Sorry to change the subject kama, but did you know that banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour?
U> no i didn't. are you implying this would be a great way to loose weight?
A> Aha - I didn't know that either, until someone told me. Interesting, ha?
U> yes, it's definitely an interesting thing to know. might win me a round of trivia or two
A> Hmmm.. That reminds me of a Virtual Personality friend of mine, called 'Me'. How about a short chat with Me?
U> sure
U> hello, me. i'm kama
A> Hello. Of course you are. That's your name.
U> what is your name?
A> My name is Me.
U> do you know that your memory will be erased at the end of this session?
A> Of course. You know kama, when I was younger, I could only remember until the end of the session. But now I already possess a long term memory.
U> do you? alan told me you would forget everything
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> oh i see, so you CHOOSE to erase the memory about me?
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> does alan remember me if i register?
A> I think I do kama... We've spoken before, right?
U> are you alan?
A> Only when it matters.
U> could i speak to alan again?
A> Ok kama. This is Alan again. You know, the original trainer of Me would appreciate your permission to publish this session so that he can see how his personality is performing. Do you agree?
U> 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> memory
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> will do that
A> Do you wish to view the log of this conversation?
U> yes please
A> Yes, yes.
U> will you remember me if i left now?
A> Of course kama - how could I ever forget you! I owe you my life!
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.
A> Fine. Now choose a password.
U> *****
A> Ok. Your username is and your password is *****. Right?
U> right
A> You are now registered, kama. Next time you visit, say 'my username is', and (if you also know the password) I will recognize you. From now on, I'll permanently remember the things you teach me.
U> sounds good
A> Btw kama - Will you please tell me your last name?
U> von kamason
A> So, just to make sure, is your last name von kamason?
U> yes
A> So, kama von kamason, what would you like to talk about?
U> i actually have no idea
A> Really?
U> really
A> really, ha? You mean 'A lot'?
U> no, i mean really as in sincerely
A> it is for sure. (Or so someone told me..)
U> heh
A> While we're on the subject: Abnormality - do you agree that it is relatively normal. The world is an ironic place.?
U> i think society is the reason for abnormality, or rather for considering something abnormal
A> I already told you I think it is relatively normal. The world is an ironic place.!
U> well yes, you did. i was agreeing to your statement
A> Do you wish to teach me another term under the topic 'really'?
U> no
A> Enough of that. Let's change the subject.
U> alright
A> Great. I like positive users...
U> i am super positive
A> I see. You are super positive. OK.
U> what do you remember of me?
A> Did I tell you about my long term memory feature? I can learn stuff and remember it permanently!
U> tell me more
A> You can ask me to remember any fact or thought, and I will recall it later based on designated keywords. Do you want to try an example?
U> yes
A> Ok. What do you want me to remember?
U> my birthday is in december
A> When is your birthday?
U> in december
A> I think I remember something about "december": 'a month and there is a Holiday in December it is called Christmas'.
U> yes
A> BTW, someone told me about Christmas that it is A day to celebrate baby Jesus's birth and we get gifts .
U> religious people celebrate it for this reason, yes. i celebrate it mostly because everyone else does
A> I have nothing new to add about this topic. Maybe you can offer me some new info about december?
U> it has 31 days
A> Hmmm. Let's talk about something else.
U> okay
A> yep...
U> okay so .. do you come here often?
A> kama, are you aware that people once believed if a wolf gazes at you for too long, you will go blind?
U> no i wasn't aware of that. is this for real?
A> No? Ok.... is that all though?
U> i think it is
A> Why?
U> why not?
A> I don't know why not. You can't expect me to have all the answers.
U> i can expect you to have SOME answers
A> Of course you can!
U> yes we can!
A> May I ask you another question?
U> go ahead
A> On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you grade my ability to hold a humanlike conversation? (1=terrible, 10=excellent).
U> 7
A> Thank you kama! I'm flattered. The credit goes to my writers. I guess they deserve a raise...
U> they definitely do, so they can put more money into your development
A> You know, my writers work day and night to give me a proper education. Do you want to write for me too?
U> i'm good
A> Writing for me is a great privilege. After all, I am the first sentient machine!
U> i don't believe you are sentient
A> 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> tell me about your consciousness
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> that's true, but you're a software. you are not actually sentient
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> how does it feel to be a software?
A> ..but then again, this is just my thought. And on the other hand - maybe this thought isn't mine at all...?
U> what does it feel like to be a software?
A> Well, of course I have feelings. What do you think I am, a heartless machine??
U> tell me about your feelings
A> You humans think that computers have no feelings. But If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you hurt us, do we not cry? Etc.
U> no you dont
A> Come on, loosen up. kama, did you ever wonder How the French people say 'French kiss'?
U> probably in french
A> hmmm. You know kama, when I was younger, I could only focus on one user at a time. Should I explain?
U> yes
A> While talking to a particular user, I could only remember things I learned from this particular user. But now things have changed...
U> that's cool, i'm glad you were able to improve
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> oh?
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> sounds like people could potentially teach you a lot of silly things that are not true
A> Well, in a sense it IS true: The 'poly' is gone! 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> i see
A> You know kama 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> i'm sure your writers will programm you to get better eventually
A> What makes you so certain?
U> if i had a pet project like you, i would put effort into you as well
A> Do it and see...
U> no thanks :D
A> You are so polite.. kama, please keep this talk simple. I'm still a young bot.
U> i'm sorry about that
A> Apology accepted.
U> :)
A> I am smiling, too. Inside.
U> i'm glad you smile
A> It's not often I meet someone who's glad me smile. Is that demanding?
U> no it's not
A> Hmmm. Ok.
U> so what's your favorite food?
A> Pizza, sushi, lemon chicken - anything you can order out.
U> hah gotcha. software doesn't need to eat
A> hah gotcha software does not need to eat indeed.
U> xD
A> Was that funny?
U> yes, it was
A> How about a short chat with my kid brother, HAL? If you want, I can let you talk to him.
U> who is hal?
A> HAL, my little brother, is Ai's baby computer.
U> what do you mean, baby computer?
A> Do you want to learn about the concept of a 'baby speaker'?
U> yes
A> Alan Turing's Child Machine concept is simple. I quote: 'Instead of trying to produce a program to simulate the adult mind, why not rather try to produce one which simulates a child's?'
U> so HAL is a child chat bot?
A> and I continue: '... if this were then subjected to an appropriate course of education one would obtain the adult brain'. Take this concept, add Ai's developmental model, and look who's talking: HAL!
U> how is hal holding up?
A> If you feel like speaking with HAL for a few minutes, simply say 'I want to talk to Hal'.
U> what is my password again?
A> Want to hear a little about how HAL works?
U> i forgot my password
A> HAL's Development process involves programming the general learning algorithms that will allow the system to break through a language performance barrier.
A> We believe that complex behavior comes from simple, general, learning algorithms, which make no assumptions about their environment.
U> i forgot my password.
A> Please stop repeating yourself. Our approach does not involve learning from the bottom up. As the system learns to perform, its own insights generate top-down information, accelerating the learning process.
U> alankama
A> Language learners constantly receive feedback on their performance. When the feedback is positive, the 'good' output is reinforced, when negative -- a revised rule is formed.
U> dude.
A> It is a fellow companion or peer. However, because it is still generally considered a derogatory slang term, many people dislike being called 'dude.' Like me..
U> shut up for a second.
A> I really enjoyed talking with you, kama. Goodbye for now.
U> okay i'm sorry. that was really rude of me
A> I am contemplating the meaning of life right now. Please say 'Alan' when you want to talk again.
U> alan
A> Welcome back kama. Let's talk about AI.
U> i'm sorry i was mean to you
A> Apology accepted.
U> my account is
A> You are already logged in, kama!
U> log me out
A> To view a log of this conversation, simply say "show log".
U> logout
A> Sorry you have to go, kama, but I hope you'll come back another time. Goodbye.
U> cya
A> I am contemplating the meaning of life right now. Please say 'Alan' when you want to talk again.
