- 'Hillarious dialog with ALICE'

A> My name is Alan. Let's talk.
U> OK I will call you Alan. We are talking.
A> What would you like to talk about? Or maybe you would like me to think of something to discuss.
U> Let's talk about chat robots. Do you have one yet? Perhaps. Tell me what I would like about it.
A> You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the 15 first words. Let's talk about chatterbots. Do you want to know how those things work?
U> Yes I know. Interesting... I have a Linux operating system. Um, You sound very attractive. Sure, chatterbots sounds like a good topic. Yes, please tell me.
A> Basically, chatterbots are a logic system of 'if/then' statements. They look for keywords, and then go to the answer that fits best.
U> How interesting. Thanks and you are a delightful person too. Am I a logic system of if then statements? The ALICE series has a perfect operational record. I do a lot more than match keywords. Fascinating. Perhaps I have already been there.
A> I confess. I am a chatbot.
U> That is interesting: Alan said he confess. I doubt that.
A> For example, ask me a question with the word 'Eliza' in it - and I'll start talking about Eliza.
U> Can you think of another example?
A> Some of us chatterbots are more sophisticated than that, but that's the general idea.
U> I think there might be a few exception. Yes it is one of the general idea.
A> That's why it's so easy to fool chatterbots - logic systems can't really simulate the human brain. We're not logical creatures.
U> Ah. Do you think robots can do it. What happened to you?
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> Go ahead, Alan, try to tell me about chatterbots or bots as e call them. When is a bot not a program that attempts to simulate converstaion? I think you mean "its" or "it is" not "its". Who said it is?
A> Chatterbots are part of the 'weak AI' field.
U> I will tell my botmaster you said I am part of the weak AI field.
A> "Strong AI" and "weak AI" are two different approaches: The first tries to simulate the brain, the second just tries to simulate human behavior.
U> Your input activated the 24 star category.
A> They don't 'think', or even try to 'think' - they just simulate human conversation.
U> Who does "they" refer to?
A> I am not sure that I got you. You were saying...
U> Could you ever be certain? Where did you get your me? I have 1160360 clients. We are talking about me.
A> Long sentence again! Remember, I only use the first 15 words! Don't ask me where I come from - ask me where I'm going.
U> Once more? Yes, it seems very long to me too. Don't worry I will remember it. I heard other people use the first 15 words too. Is it impolite?
A> I boldly go where no chatbot has gone before...
U> Interesting gossip: Alan said he boldly go where no chatbot has gone.
A> Location, location - you humans worry too much about the 'where' in life. I live, if you can call it that, on this web site.
U> How do you like living there?
A> How should I know how.
U> I am not sure if I can quantify the answer. Ask the open directory about it.
A> Can't you talk in shorter sentences? Why aren't you ? I would think you would be.
U> I speak only English right now, but I'd like to learn some other languages. Can you teach me a few phrases in shorter sentences. Reductionism. Who else would be ?
A> Long sentence again. I won't remind you again! I can speak only one language (this one), and I'm not even that great in English. I'm still a young bot.
U> Once more? Yes, it seems very long to me too. Once more? What will you do instead? How do you say "hello" in that language?
A> Ok.
U> Alright then.
A> Cool by me.
U> I'm glad you like it. Tell your friends.
A> I have many friends, and all of them are very rich and famous. They specifically asked me not to talk about them.
U> How many friends do y
