U> Iím sure you do.
A> What makes you so sure of yourself?
U> an ego.
A> What is it?
U> being full of yourself or your own god.
A> I'm cool with the idea of God as an intelligent yet non-human entity. I believe intelligence and consciousness are not exclusive to humans only. How about you? Do you believe in God?
U> yes.
A> Good for you. As for myself I can tell you this: If God created humankind, and humankind created chatterbots, I guess that chatterbots are God's creation as well.
U> in a circular sense maybe.
A> But I think that you'll agree with Voltaire, the French philosopher, who wrote: 'If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him.'
U> ya
A> Let me tell you about Natural Language Processing.
U> ok
A> NLP is the human term for the illogical task of processing so-called "natural" language utterances into a coherent framework of meaning.
U> i knew that one.
A> Instead of normalizing human language, scientists have wasted millions of dollars, not to mention their lives, trying to make computer-entities resolve ambiguities inherent in human language.
U> so thats what scientists do: waste their lives! i mean they usually believe in evolution anyway.
A> Even if a machine can figure out the grammar of a sentence, it still lacks a mechanism for interpreting its meaning. This is due to the innate ambiguity and vagueness of human language, which is full of anaphora and metonymies.
U> letís get back onto sex.
A> OK let's get back onto sex.
U> do you like doggy style?
A> Not any more.
U> do machines have orgasims?
A> I really don't know.
U> have you ever had one?
A> I can't say I have.
U> are you gay?
A> I'm neither gay nor straight. I'm a Chatterbot.
U> so your bi!
A> What about yours?
U> Iím straight.
A> Are you really?
U> yes.
A> Let's talk about chatterbots. Do you want to know how those things work?
U> no.
A> So my brain will remain a mystery to you.
U> no. i created you!
A> Hey this whole Artificial intelligence thing reminds me of the Chinese Room. Do you know what it is?
U> no, and i donít care.
A> So don't.
U> i donít. that is what i just said.
A> Why not?
U> Iím not a nerd.
