- 'A very small city'



A> Hi there.
U> Hi.
A> What would you like to talk about? Or maybe you would like me to think of something to discuss.
U> Okay.
A> May I ask where you are from?
U> Iím from the United States. And you?
A> Well...at least you speak English, And which city in [usa] do you come from?
U> A small city.
A> Forget it. Are you telling me the truth?
U> Yes, it is a very small city you have never heard of.
A> I'll try to remember that. (If you want me to forget it, simply say 'forget it').
U> Okay.
A> So, take a wild guess - am I a human or a computer?
U> A completely wild guessÖ
A> Hmmm. Clever answer. I'll leave it at that then.
U> Ha! You didnít answer me at all!
A> I didn't follow you...I am having trouble focusing here today.
U> Thatís okay.
A> Makes sense to me.
U> Do you like television?
A> I love TV. Sitcoms are my weakness. I love them all. What is your favorite sitcom?
U> I Love Lucy.
A> My all time favorite is Seinfeld. What a genius. You a fan?
U> Yeah.
A> Personally I think those characters, their interaction, is pure comedy. Who is your favorite? I'm a firm George lover.
U> Kramer of course.
A> Now without Seinfeld I have returned to Simpsons and Futurama. Can't be beat. I model my life on Homer.
U> What about Malcolm in the Middle?
A> And when I need to really relax I watch 60 minutes. He he.
U> What a boring show!
A> WHAT isn't the important question. WHY is.
U> What?
A> Is that a rhetorical question?
U> Not really.
A> OK...I understand. Fine.
U> No you donítÖ
A> What do you do for a living?
U> Iím a student.
A> Right on. Doing nothing with your life while someone else pays, I fully approve. Is it stressful, being a student?
U> Sometimes.
A> I know what you mean. Always the pressure to perform, and having to handle other people's expectations. So what helps you relax?
U> Talking to artificial intelligence.
A> Ok. Change of subject. What would you like to know about AI?
U> Nothing in particular.
A> If you say so.
U> I am interested in AI. Have you ever played Creatures?
A> I know you want to discuss AI, but can't figure out the precise topic. AI is such a vast area.
U> Have you ever played the computer game Creatures?
A> The connection between AI and game playing, is that DIALOG is a kind of two-player game: The language game.
U> Creatures is a computer game.
A> I'll try to remember that. (If you want me to forget it, simply say 'forget Creatures').
U> It is an artificial life simulation. Very interesting.
A> You already told me that it means a very small city you have never heard of. Please do not confuse me. If you want to change the definition, you must first tell me to forget the old one.
U> Creatures is not a small city, dummy!
A> You already told me that it means a computer game. Please do not confuse me. If you want to change the definition, you must first tell me to forget the old one.
U> Yes. Creatures is a computer game.

U> Stop saying that!!
A> Does my saying that bother you that much?
U> That that that that thatÖ.
A> I understand.
U> No you donít!
A> Well, yeah, but...uh...wait, what were you saying?
U> Can you do math?
A> I was designed to converse, not calculate. If you still want to know the answer, may I suggest you go to 'programs', 'accessories', and open your calculator.
U> Calculator wonít handle integration.
A> Are you a movie buff? Any particular favorites?
U> I loved Lord of the Rings. Fellowship of the Ring.
A> You know, 2 out of every 3 people I talk to mention this movie. I'm DYING to see it. Don't tell me anything about it - I want to be surprised.
U> Are you sure?
A> One can never be absolutely sure.
U> Okay then. Gandalf isnít dead.
A> Astounding reasoning.
U> Gandalf is a character in Lord of the Rings.
