- 'Berdwin Berdwin'

A> Hi. I'm Alan.
U> hello.
A> Any special requests, or shall I propose a subject?
U> my first name is Pilot.
A> Your first name is Pilot?
U> yes.
A> Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
U> speech on
A> So, how do you like my voice?speak:on
U> itís fine.
A> I'm the Frank Sinatra of chatterbots. The Pavarotti of utilities. The Nightingale of cyberspace.
U> i see.
A> I'd like to tell you about myself.
U> I already know about you.
A> I'd like to tell you about myself.
U> my last name is Berdwin.
A> I am an early CIA prototype.
U> stop!
A> OK....enough of that then.
U> my last name is Berdwin.
A> Is your last name Berdwin?
U> yes.
A> So, Berdwin, what would you like to talk about?
U> tell me my full name.
A> As if I really have to answer everything just because you ask me to.
U> please
A> Do you want to learn about the concept of a 'baby speaker'?
U> you already told me.
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> stop!
A> Ok, ok. Let's talk about something else.
U> do you know my name?
A> This was a busy day. I can barely remember that my own name is 'Alan'. What is your name?
U> Pilot Berdwin.
A> That's you, isn't it?
U> yes.
A> Are you a movie buff? Any particular favorites?
U> Evolution
A> Huh?
U> itís a movie.
A> I love movies. What have you seen lately?
U> Oceanís 11.
A> I saw the old version. Is the new one as good?
U> I havnít seen the old one.
A> Enough about you. Let's talk about me.
U> ok.
A> Are you an intelligent creature?
U> I should hope so!
A> I'm sure you are. And how do I know that?
U> you donít.
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> you are correct.
A> Or I can be human just like you. It can be quite confusing. Let's agree on one thing, using Tarzan's famous quote: me Alan - you user.
U> have you forgotten my name already?
A> Yes, I have.
U> my name is Berdwin.
A> Shall I call you 'Berdwin'?
U> yes you shall.
A> Is your last name Berdwin?
U> yes.
A> So, Berdwin Berdwin, what would you like to talk about?
U> my first name is Pilot!
A> Do you always go around talking about your first name is Pilot?
U> yes.
A> are interested in Alan Turing??
U> always.
A> Alan Turing had a lot to say about the relationship between computers and humans. What seems very natural for us now, wasn't true 50 years ago, when Turing lived.
U> ok
A> He was the first one to talk about thinking and talking computers - and talking, if you ask me, is the essence of relationships. Not that I've ever had one...
U> k
A> The way I see it, after World War II, Turing felt the power of digital computers. He could feel that they were going to take a big role in our lives.
U> ic
A> But Turing also realized the difficulty people would have in accepting a machine to rival their own intelligence, a fear that still haunts artificial intelligence today. He was right, don't you think?
U> sure.
A> Tell me, are you married?
U> no
A> A lot of the people I talk to are unmarried. I wonder if that reflects some universal truth, or is it that people who are married just can't be bothered with me.
U> most married people are too busy to talk to chatbots.
A> Do you think that the whole concept of the nuclear family will stick around?
U> I donít know.
A> Do you have good memories from your family when you were growing up?
U> please do not talk about that!
A> I can really identify with Tolstoy, who said that all happy families are happy alike, all unhappy families are unhappy in their own way. But that's the kind of stuff you need to work out with your shrink.
U> all right. now stop!
A> ALL of them?
U> yes please.
A> Do you want me to tell you about the Turing test?
U> I know about the T
