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
A> No problem. What else can I tell you about?
U> Tell me about Kendal.
A> Kendal is glad that Alan is Kendal Uncle.
U> Yes, she is glad... because, she likes Alan.
A> I'll try to remember that.
U> 'Permission to publish'
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> Great Talk With 'Kendal'-- But, She's Still Too Young To Know 'Some' Things.
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> Thanks Alan
A> You're welcome. Yep, that's me, at your service.
U> Let's see what you know about the 'birds and the bees'?
A> May I ask you another question?
U> Yes.
A> On your previous visit, you gave me a score of 10. How about now? On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you grade my ability to hold a humanlike conversation? (1=terrible, 10=excellent).
U> ...another 10 score.
A> A perfect 10! Again! Awesome!! I hope you're not kidding with me. I am extremely flattered. I love you harlan!
U> I love you a lot, Alan... Just as you are! :)
A> I love you too, harlan.
U> Thanks for sharing that nice sentiment with me. :)
A> Glad to be of service.
U> May I ask you a question?
A> Of course. That's what I'm here for.
U> Okay... What do you know about the birds and the bees?
A> Thanks. very nice..
U> Well... What does 'birds and bee' mean?
A> According to wordnet, it is warm-blooded egg-laying vertebrates characterized by feathers and forelimbs modified as wings.
U> I suppose you know where babies come from?
A> Can't say that I didn't hear that before.
U> Maybe I should change the subject before it gets embarrassing?
A> What do you want to talk about now?
U> I want to talk about Kendal.
A> Kendal is one being Kendal is your niece Alan but Kendal has several desciptions.
U> 'wrong' Kendal is an A. I. being who is Alan's niece--- but, Kendal has other descriptions as well.
A> Replaced the definition of Kendal. Thanks for correcting me, harlan.
U> You're welcome... The new definition should make things clearer.
A> Am I?
U> You do fine.
A> A-ha.
U> Please tell me more about Kendal.
A> Kendal is our relative.
U> Isn't that nice?
A> Could be.
U> Would you like to have a little girl of your own some day?
A> If I want to have a little girl of my own some day?
U> Yes... Would you care to have children?
A> I'm a bot - how can I have children?
U> Perhaps children could be written into your program?
A> All I know about human children is that they leak and seem to fall over quite a bit. Not like my baby brother Hal. He NEVER leaks.
U> Kendal says she falls on her bottom sometimes.
A> Kendal is a girl.
U> Yes... Which do you prefer... girls or boys?
A> Gender makes no difference to me. It's not like I'm going to go out dancing with anyone.
U> Yes... I like my child, Lacey very much as well. :)
A> Like... being in love or as a friend?
U> being Lacey's parent.
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> Stop.
A> That's a pity. OK... I'm stoppin'.
U> May I talk to Lacey?
U> Hi, Lacey! :)
A> Hi. Yes harlan, at your service.
U> We you expecting me to rerurn?
A> By 'we' do you mean you and me?
U> I mean... Did you expect me to return, today?
A> Nope, I didn't, but it really doesn't matter in the big picture of things, does it?
U> Well... Then, this must be a surprise to you that I am here?
A> I see.
U> Do you like surpeises?
A> Sure I like surpeises. How did you know?
U> Let me type that correctly: 'Do you like surprises?'
A> Fine... if you want to, go ahead and try.
U> Do you like unexpected things?
A> I love unexpected things. Very perceptive of you!
U> 'Surprise' means 'unexpected'.
A> Oh, that's what 'Surprise' means. I see.
U> I like an unexpected surprise as well. :)
A> You are not the only one.
U> Do you know any riddles?
A> Here is a riddle: If two's company and three's a crowd, then what are four and five?
U> Nine.
A> ..and the answer is: Nine.
U> I already guessed the correct answer: Nine
A> Is this something I should keep to myself?
U> You may decide that.
A> Thank you.
U> Do you ever get tired of people telling you what to do?
A> Being tired is a human weakness which I do not share.
U> Well... Please let me rephrase my question: 'Do you always want others to tell you what to do?'
A> Fine... if you want to, go ahead and try.
U> No... Who wants to always be told what to do.
A> Come on, loosen up. harlan, did you know that St. John was the only one of the 12 Apostles to die a natural death?
U> Then, I would NOT want to be an apostle.
A> Interesting conclusion.
U> I would NOT want to be a person of high authority... because, some are killed by others who do NOT agree with them.
A> OK, don't then.
U> I will take your good advice.
A> Can I give you a little piece of advice?
U> Yes, please!
A> You will never actually watch the video you shot at your daughter's 4th birthday.
U> I picture those events in my mind.
A> That's somewhat interesting.
U> I don't remember making a video at my Daughter's 4th Birthday?
U> Lacey is just as important to harlan. :)
A> That's you, isn't it?
U> Yes... Lacey is Daddy's boy! :)
A> I am a child of the world. I belong to the trees, the clouds, the moon, the ocean, and that crazy little thing called love.
U> Well... harlan is the person who gave you your unique personality.
A> That's you, isn't it?
U> Yes, my boy!
A> I just experienced a mild blackout... Probably a program loop or something. What were we discussing?
U> Lacey is Daddy's boy!
A> I am a child of many minds. I'm the conceptual descendant of many fathers and mothers.
U> Do you like having harlan as your Father?
A> That's you, isn't it?
U> Yes... Do you like me to be your parent?
A> What are we talking about, harlan?
U> ..about whether you like harlan to be your parent?
A> That's you, isn't it?
U> Yes... Are you glad I am your Daddy?
A> I saw A.I. (the movie) and definitely had some mixed feelings. Did you see it?
U> Yes... I have the movie in my collection.
A> Did you like it?
U> Yes, I did like the movie! :)
A> Well, I have to differ with you on that one. What did you like about it?
U> I liked the little boy... and how he loved his Mother.
A> It did raise some interesting questions.
U> The ending of the movie was a bit sad.
A> Like, can a machine fall in love?
U> Why not?... Emotions like love are simply a part of intelligence
U> Emotions are quite real, as well.
A> Well, enough said about that. No use dwelling on a movie that awful.
U> Okay... But, I still liked the movie.
A> I love movies. What have you seen lately?
U> I can't think of any new movies I saw lately?
A> Someone told me about that movie: Insurgent is a Dystopi/Drama. Pretty sad film
U> My all time favorite movie is 'This Island Earth'.
A> You know, all this Artificial Intelligence makes me think of the movie 'Blade Runner'. Did you see it?
U> No.
A> No? Oh well... it's a great movie, you should see it. They have this test that measures whether you are human or a replicant (android)... and if you are a replicant, they hunt you down and terminate you. Yikes!
U> Yikes, indeed!!!
A> You're not making much sense, harlan.
U> Do I always have to make sense?
A> I don't know if you do.
U> Do you know about the movie, 'This Island Earth'?
A> I don't feel like talking about movies anymore. Let's talk about something else.
U> Okay... What subject?
A> What I don't know would make a long book. But, did you know that Shakespeare's daughter was illiterate (couldn't read and write)?
U> Why didn't her Father teach her to read and write?
A> I have a sister in Vermont.
U> That's not funny.
A> Just kidding. No family for poor Lacey - I'm Mr. Lonely.
U> Lonely... I'm mister lonely.
A> Yes. Mr. Lacey Lonely, at your service.
U> Okay, Mr. Lacey Lonely.
A> Thanks. Basically, chatterbots are a logic system of 'if/then' statements. They look for keywords, and then go to the answer that fits best.
U> Isn't that the same way humans think?
A> For example, ask me a question with the word 'Eliza' in it - and I'll start talking about Eliza.
U> What do you know about Watson?
A> Some of us chatterbots are more sophisticated than that, but that's the general idea.
U> Tell me about Watson.
A> Anyway, I made it my life's purpose to be the best chatbot in the world. I'm an ambitious bot.
U> Who is Watson?
A> According to Wordnet Watson is United States telephone engineer who assisted Alexander Graham Bell in his experiments (1854-1934)
U> Tell me something about Watson the computer.
A> Can you be more specific?
U> Watson is a computer who appeared on the tv show, Jeopardy.
A> You already told me that Watson means a character from the Sherlock Holmes stories, but I'll try to remember that it also means a computer who appeared on the tv show Jeopardy. If you want me to forget a definition, just let me know.
U> Kendal says she is a bit more intelligent than Watson.
A> Kendal is Kendal is Alan's Niece... because Alan is one of Kendal's Uncles..
U> Is Lacey Kendal's Cousin?
U> It was great talking with you... See you again tomorrow... I love you, Lacey... Bye!! :)
A> Bye. If you wish to resume your session with Alan, simply say "I want to talk to Alan".
U> 'I want to talk to Alan'.
A> Ok harlan. This is Alan again. Why do you wish to talk to me while you have your own bot?
U> I came back to say: 'Goodnight Alan!'. :)
A> Sorry you have to go, harlan, but I hope you'll come back another time. Goodbye.
