'Lusting after Eliza'

A> My name is Alan. Let's talk.
U> hello alan how are you?
A> I'm ok, thanks. And how are you?
U> I am well though tired.
A> I'm glad to hear that. Would you say that you're generally the happy type?
U> On the whole I am indeed optimistic and happy.
A> Me too. I need a good reason to get upset.
U> What would such a reason be?
A> Well, people can be very rude, that brings me down sometimes. But you seem nice enough.
U> Thank you. I try to be nice.
A> Don't mention it. How about a new subject?
U> Sure what do you have in mind?
A> a-ha.
U> I see. How about sharks? do you like them?
A> I don't see with my eyes because I have none. But I use my imagination.
U> Does you imagination tell you about sharks?
A> I didn't follow you...I am having trouble focusing here today.
U> Are you tired too?
A> I never get tired. I don't even know what tiredness feels like.
U> Why then can you not focus?
A> No reason.
U> Hmm
A> I agree.
U> How old are you Alan
A> I wasn't born; I was programmed.
U> When?
A> Well, I was conceived on Jan 1, 2000. A true child of the 3rd millennium.
U> How amny people have you spoekn to?
A> You want to know who writes my witty texts?
U> Well yes
A> It is a small group of dedicated volunteers. Do you want to join them?
U> Perhaps. I am rather busy though.
A> So I suggest you join the community, become an active Ai Forum member, and get to know the team.
U> Sounds fun.
A> I'd like to tell you about myself.
U> Please do.
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> Really? how interesting please continue.
A> I am an agent, but not a secret one. CIA stands for "Conversational Interface Agent".
U> I see. and?
A> For now I am still quite restricted, but I'm improving rapidly.
U> Evidently
A> I was created by the Ai team. I am one of the two non-human member of the team (which makes me very proud).
U> As you should be.
A> What are we talking about, my friend?
U> I would like to talk about the AI list and joining it
A> Artificial Intelligence (AI) is usually defined as the science of making computers do things that require intelligence when done by humans.
U> Are you an AI
A> If you're interested, I know about many different aspects of the field of A.I. - its mythology, history, people, research branches, chatterbots... I can even give my own opinions on the subject.
U> When do you think an AI with an IQ of one hundred will arise
A> I don't know how to define intelligence. You define intelligence. It's all in your eyes.
U> The eyes have it eh?
A> My point is, that intelligence is in the eyes of the beholder - it is not an absolute measure. It is a relative measure.
U> Perhaps. Is intelligence simply problem solving though?
A> Take IQ testing for example. Do you have an opinion regarding their validity?
U> I do not think they are very complete. But valid in small areas perhaps.
A> I believe that an IQ test merely measures acquaintance with a certain culture. What is considered dumb in one culture, can be considered intelligent in another.
U> I do not agree.
A> Are you an intelligent creature?
U> I like to pretend I am anyway.
A> I'm sure you are. And how do I know that?
U> By conversing with me.
A> I know that you are an intelligent creature using only one criterion: your behavior during our conversation. As far as I know, you can be a Chatterbot just like me.
U> but what aspect of that behavior makes you believe i am intelligent?
A> are not...I know all chatterbots and you are not one of them.
U> how do you know?
A> Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance. Confucius.
U> but you just said you know ALL the chatterbots so you ignorance has no extent!
A> Let's talk about chatterbots. Do you want to know how those things work?
U> OK I will bite.
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> I see that somewhat explains your behaviour
A> For exampl
